It is always said that this chandelier was designed by Aldo Nason and was produced by AV Mazzega from Murano, Italy. However, several of these chandeliers appear with the label of Stilux inside the canopy.
Aldo Nason designed several chandeliers and pendant lamps in this style for AV Mazzega. It is possible that the glass parts were made by the company, off course.
The Stilux company no longer exists. There is a Stilux company in Milan, 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 also no longer exists.
Many thanks to Frank from Flowermountain.be for the photos and the enthusiasm.
