BILIA lamp mod. 2474
Gio Ponti production Fontana Arte Italy, 60's
Lacquered aluminum, frosted glass
45 H / 20 diam. cm
Designed by Gio Ponti in 1931 for Fontana Arte Italy this lamp is composed of two primitive forms: a cone and a sphere.
The cone is made of aluminum and is finished with the original lacquer. The sphere is made of fine frosted glass, with a beautiful satin sheen typical of Fontana Arte glass of the time.
These two elements, the structured lacquer and the quality of the glass, make this lamp special and different from later productions. The frosted glass globe diffuses the light in a soft and pleasant way, providing a warm light.
