Fontana Arte - Gio Ponti, Pietro Chiesa, Max
Author Franco Deboni, foreword by Bernd Goeckler Allemandi & C. English Edition, available exclusively through Bernd Goeckler Antiques, starting March 7th. Franco Deboni is the most renowned author and expert on 20th century Italian glass in the world. Fontana Arte is the most important and innovative Italian glass designer and maker of the 20th century. It is not surprising that Fontana Arte has chosen Franco Deboni to document the compelling story of its founding by Italian artist and entrepreneur Luigi Fontana and the icon of 20th century Italian design, Gio Ponti, whose visionary designs transformed Italian glass in the early 1930s into lighting systems, furniture and accessories incorporating strikingly modern design with traditional Italian glass blowing craftsmanship which began Fontana Arte's journey to the unchallenged position of prestige and leadership that it holds today. This insightful journey through time with Gio Ponti, Pietro Chiesa and Max Ingrand is brought to vivid life with 562 illustrations in 336 pages to fulfill every expectation the reader might have.

Piero Fornasetti: Practical Madness
Piero Fornasetti: Practical
An extensive illustrated survey of one of the most inventive design minds of the twentieth century. Combining whimsy and elegance, Piero Fornasetti transformed everyday objects like cups, scarves, and plates into much sought-after works of art with his idiosyncratic motifs, such as the hand, the female face, and luminescent fish. His dazzling pieces of trompe l’oeil furniture, created in collaboration with Gio Ponti, are also highly prized by collectors worldwide. Fornasetti’s boundless imagination is celebrated here in a book published to document a major retrospective exhibition at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. The first half of the monograph is organized by type and includes Fornasetti’s paintings, drawings, and furniture. The second half focuses on favorite themes: his use of trompe l’oeil, architectural drawings, and his variations on the face of a famous operatic beauty. Featuring 400 illustrations covering almost fifty years of a protean and prolific designer and artist like no other, this is a must-have for Fornasetti connoisseurs and anyone interested in design.
