Angelo Lelii is the founder of Arredoluce; Italy’s most innovative lighting firm of the 1950s and ’60s. He stands out with his innovative research into form, matter and colour.
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 he created his first lamp in his basement at home. In 1946 he had a complete page in the famous Domus-magazine and in 1947 he started his company Arredoluce in his home town. The company ended business after his dead in 1979.
You can find an Italian lamp company on the internet with the same name, but they just use this name, they got nothing to do with the original.
