"Light is Movement
" is the theme for FontanaArte at Euroluce 2011.
This entails focusing on the future, looking ahead, keeping up with the times,
or better still anticipating them, offering quality lighting fixtures that are elegant
and innovative while respecting the tradition of a company
that has been producing lamps for over 75 years.
The company’s immense commitment to using LED light sources has led to the creation
of a series of lighting fixtures with extraordinary luminous efficiency.
FontanaArte has always stood out for pursuing original and aesthetically
appealing shapes. This year, this is fully expressed with several new lamps,
including Carmen by Hector Serrano and Wig by Chris Hardy.
New products will be presented at Euroluce 2011 and at our showroom.
On this occasion Nice will light Building (by Marco Acerbis), thanks to the Nice Apps
able to remotely supervise, control and manage home automations for gates, garage doors,
parking systems, blinds and shutters, alarm and lighting systems,
through an intuitive web interface, accessible via Internet by a touchpad.
The display space project, by the architect Piero Russi, is intended to convey
the “Light is Movement” philosophy and the concept of lightness that is characteristic
of all products made in 2011. The concept comes from the world of nature, the bottom of the sea,
where light enhances continuously changing colours and shapes, and is filtered by the water
that surrounds all things.

MonteNapoleone Design Experience
A Dream Come True, SaloneSatellite Exhibition

To celebrate the 50th edition of the Salone del Mobile, the Association
of Via MonteNapoleone, Cosmit and Citroën Italia have organized an open-air exhibition
in Via MonteNapoleone, Milan’s top shopping street.
The exhibition has been conceived to offer everyone the possibility of a full immersion
in the design world; it has been organized in a street which is considered a symbol of Milan,
just like the Salone del Mobile which for 50 years has contributed
to making our city the capital in this sector.
Objects from the “A Dream Come True” exhibition will be on display in the street;
the open-air exhibition has been conceived as a visual journey and experience to
celebrate the evolution of design in the last few years.
FontanaArte will be present with the 2003 Loop lamp by Voon Wong and Benson Saw.
Citroën has conceived an aerial installation along the entire street and in this
striking setting will present the new Citroën DS4.
