Aldo Nason

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.

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 1990’s, but that firm also no longer exists.
