The rare flush mount ceiling lamp, model 1937, was designed by Max Ingrand and manufactured by Fontana Arte in Italy in 1961. This exquisite lamp features a beautiful diamond-shaped form composed of two etched glass elements, creating an amazing light effect. The facets on the sides add to its elegance, while the three-bulb socket creates a doubled lighting illusion when illuminated. The glass elements are securely held together by a brass connector in a distinctive wide M-shape. The lamp’s structure is made of black-finished metal, providing robust support for the glass components. Additionally, its flush mount design allows it to be used as both a ceiling and wall lamp.


This lamp is documented in Max Ingrand’s works and Fontana Arte catalogs. Max Ingrand, a prominent French-Italian designer and architect, made significant contributions to decorative arts and lighting design. Born on November 20, 1908, in Bressuire, France, Ingrand’s artistic journey began early. He studied at the École Nationale des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, where he honed his skills in aesthetics and craftsmanship. In 1929, Ingrand moved to Italy and became a naturalized Italian citizen. Throughout his career, he collaborated with renowned design firms, including Fontana Arte (where he served as artistic director) and Arteluce, leaving a lasting impact on lighting design.


Ingrand’s designs are known for their elegance, simplicity, and harmonious proportions. He skillfully combined materials such as glass, metal, and wood to create iconic lighting fixtures. His work often featured exquisite glasswork, intricate patterns, and a balance between functionality and artistic expression. Beyond lighting, Ingrand also contributed to architectural projects, redesigning interiors for luxury hotels, public spaces, and private residences, always aiming to create visually stunning environments that seamlessly integrated with their surroundings.


Max Ingrand’s legacy continues to inspire contemporary designers. His innovative use of materials, attention to detail, and timeless aesthetic captivate design enthusiasts worldwide. Ingrand’s contributions serve as a testament to his talent, vision, and dedication to creating enduring works of art.
