About this item

This Mid-Century glass and brass chandelier was designed by Pietro Chiesa for Fontana Arte in the 1940s.
The Italian Art Deco designer Pietro Chiesa was born in Milan in 1892 in a family of artists originally from Ticino, Switzerland. After his studies at the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera, he completed an apprenticeship at the studio of the furniture designer Giovan Battista Giannotti; having gathered enough security and experience, Chiesa opened his studio in 1921 under the name Bottega di Pietro Chiesa.
Known above all for his work as a glassmaker, Chiesa presented his work for the first time in 1925 at the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes in Paris. In 1932 his studio joined Fontana Arte, the legendary Italian manufacture of lighting and glass objects founded by Gio Ponti and Luigi Fontana. Chiesa becomes the company's artistic director, and over the years designs numerous models for Fontana Arte, including lamps, windows, tables, and artistic decorative objects. Among the most noteworthy pieces signed by the designer, we mention the Fontana table (1932), made in a single beam of molded clear glass, the Cartoccio vase (1932), and the Luminator lacquered brass floor lamp (1933).
Church dies in Paris in 1948.
