Max Ingrand was a prominent French-Italian designer and architect known for his exceptional contributions to the world of decorative arts and lighting design. Born on November 20 1908 in Bressuire, France, Ingrand’s creative journey began in his early years. Ingrand’s passion for art and design led him to study at the Ecole Nationale des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. He developed a keen eye for aesthetics and craftsmanship during this period. In 1929, he moved to Italy and became a naturalized Italian citizen. Throughout his career, Ingrand collaborated with renowned design firms, including Fontana Arte (where he was artistic direcotor) and Arteluce, leaving an indelible mark on the world of lighting design. His innovative approach and ability to combine various materials such as glass, metal, and wood allowed him to create stunning and iconic lighting fixtures.
Fontana Arte was known for its outstanding quality lights and was only sold to the avant-garde from Italy. Also, because it was too expensive for regular earning people these lamps are rare. Makes the lights from Fontana Arte highly wanted and sought after on the market already for years. Pietro Chiesa was together with Max Ingrand one of the most important designers of Fontana Arte who brought the brand to the top of the market.
