We kindly suggest you read the whole description, because with it we try to give you detailed technical and historical information to guarantee the authenticity of our objects. Iconic and large ceiling light with hexagonal steel frame and light blue and frosted white glass elements; the massive light blue elements are trapezoidal in shape and have been ground and chamfered at the edges; the round concave glass in the center has the function of diffusing the light evenly; the exposed frame is steel, while the part that looks at the wall is enameled white color and has a step to keep the entire ceiling light spaced from the wall so that aesthetically it looks lighter and more suspended. Inside, within easy reach, is a lamp holder for three bulbs, the wires of which emerge from a hole in the back, also in the back are two other holes to easily attach the ceiling light to the wall, which can be placed on the ceiling or used on a ceiling as a wall sconce. The ceiling light was produced between 1970 and 1973 in a Milan artisan workshop in perfect Fontana Arte style, a company that inspired many manufacturers large and small. The prestigious Fontana Arte company was founded in Milan in 1932 by Luigi Fontana and Giò Ponti and specialized in glassworking and the production of furnishing accessories, a prominent name in Italian design. Our ceiling light as well as a piece of furniture is an example of the style. Elegant, rigorous, and functional that manages to create warm, lunar, shaded, and enveloping atmospheres, giving new light even in the eyes of the beholder. Measurements diameter cm.35, height cm.14. The ceiling light is in good condition and has only a small and barely visible chip at one corner of blue glass (see photo). The electrical system is working but the wiring is European, the compatibility of the voltage in other countries must always be checked by an electrician before use. For all our shipments we use special packaging materials (wooden crates, styrofoam, etc.) for maximum protection and safety of the objects.
