Angelo Lelii Chandelier in Brass for Arredoluce
Angelo Lelii for Arredoluce, chandelier, brass and metal, Italy, 1950s.
This elegant and organic pendant with polished brass hand-hammered leafs is designed by Angelo Lelli. The chandelier consists of a brass shaft from which six brass leaves 'sprout'. The leaves fan out in a precisely thought out manner, yet they appear as if they have grown like this in a natural way. Very distinct and rare lamp by Lelli. The lamp is part of a larger series by Lelii of both floor and ceiling lamp.
The chandelier shows an admirable patina.
Angelo Lelii (1911-1989) was an Italian lamp designer who founded Arredoluce in 1947. He has not received any formal training, he is thus an autodidact. He has designed hundreds of sculptural lamps and has won many prizes such as the Milan Triennal price for design.
