Pietro Chiesa

Italian, 1892 - 1948
Pietro Chiesa (1892-1948) was an Italian architect, designer, and artist known for his contributions to the field of modernist design. He was born in Milan, Italy, and studied at the Brera Academy of Fine Arts. Chiesa's early work was influenced by the Art Nouveau style, but he later shifted towards the modernist movement, which emphasized simplicity, functionality, and mass production.
Chiesa was a co-founder of the Italian design company FontanaArte, which specialized in lighting fixtures and furniture. He was also a prolific designer of glassware, creating innovative pieces that combined traditional Murano glass techniques with modernist design principles. His glasswork was characterized by its clean lines, geometric shapes, and use of clear, colorless glass.
Chiesa's work had a significant impact on the development of modernist design in Italy and beyond. He was recognized for his contributions with numerous awards and honors, including the prestigious Grand Prix at the 1925 Paris Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes. Today, Chiesa's designs are still highly sought after by collectors and are featured in museums and galleries around the world.
