Other versions: This Stilux Milan chain chandelier exists in several variations. Chandeliers, flush mounts, table lamps and wall lamps were also produced.
It is often 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, as you can see.
Aldo Nason designed several chandeliers and pendant lamps in this style for AV Mazzega. All made as a chain. It is possible that the glass parts were made by the AV Mazzega company, of course. Stilux did not produce glass parts.
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.
