Founded in 1937 by Giovanni Fontana a master artisan, who envisioned a company that combined craft with audacious innovation, and epitomize the very essence of Milanese style.
The lines, minimal and streamlined, reflect a sense of sobriety and discretion that is rooted in the brand’s Milanese origins, unveiling the hidden emotions and passions that have always been part of that identity, in a seductive contrast between restraint and passion.
Lightweight, graphic and essential, silhouettes derive from the brand’s design-led aesthetic. Where form follows function and function follows form. Lines are pure and discreet while being bold and often unconventional. Like a true object of design.
