Fontini’s successful DO
-surface electrical mechanisms- and DO LOW
-recessed electric mechanisms- collections are recognized with a seal of excellence in design, for their geometric beauty and pure shapes. The signature of high-end electric mechanisms offers minimalist style collections with the charm of the porcelain mechanism.
Fontini creates a reinterpretation of its porcelain electric mechanism with such a characteristic rotary function and designs DO and DO LOW, collections that have pieces with a high integration in all interior design projects. The different finishes of its hands and screws give it an aesthetic level of maximum attraction, combined with materials of natural origin such as porcelain, wood or metal.
Fontini brings a singular beauty thanks to the DO and DO LOW collection with the design of a frame that accentuates the circular geometry in a unique way.
