Angelo Lelii

Angelo Lelii was born in 1911 in Monza, near Milan in Italy. He was responsible for the design and manufacture of hundreds of beautiful lamps. In 1943 Lelii created his first lamp in his basement at home. In 1946 he had a complete page in the famous Domus-magazine and in 1947 Angelo Lelii started his company Arredoluce in his hometown. It ended business in 1987.

You can find an Italian lamp company on the internet with the same name, but they just use this name. The firm got nothing to do with the original.
