Little info can be found about the Stilux lighting company, unfortunately. The Stilux company no longer exists.

A Stilux company in Milan exists, but it’s got nothing to do with lighting: “Stilux is a company that deals with professional printing and paper converting solutions for communication”.

There was also a Sti-lux company that made lamps in the 1990s, but that firm also no longer exists.
