Angelo Lelii for Arredoluce, wall light, brass, opaline glass, polished glass, Italy, circa 1953

This eccentric wall light is designed by the renowned and talented Italian designer Angelo Lelli for Arredoluce. The design features a beautiful fixture constructed of brass tubes that are elegantly shaped. The opaline lightbulbs are displayed on polished glass spheres and further placed in decorated fittings that, speaking of botany, resemble buds; as if the light is blooming. The lamp adds delicateness and elegance to your room thanks to its wonderful combination of materials and subtle ornaments, resulting in a sophisticated expression.

Paolo Angelo Lelii (1911-1979) was born in Ancona, Italy. After his studies at the Superior Institute of Industrial Art, Milan, he lived and worked in Monza. From 1943, Lelii started manufacturing lamps in his own house and in 1946 he advertised his well-known 'Tris' lamp in Domus magazine. It was in 1947 that he founded Arredoluce in Monza, a premier manufacturer of furniture and lighting. In the same year, he exhibited the lamp 12128 at the VII Triennale di Milano, which became known as the Triennale floor lamp. He became an influential designer in Postwar Italy, especially in the field of modern lighting design. During the 1950s, Arredoluce started to collaborate with designers such as Franco Albini, Achille Castiglioni, Gio Ponti, and Ettore Sottsass and also began to experiment with halogen light bulbs for his designs, which lead to the recognizable Arredoluce switch. Thanks to Angelo Lelii’s unique approach to design, Arredoluce quickly built a reputation for creating premium quality products based on clean, simple, and functional designs.
