Unusual Italian Chrome Pendant Light Attributed to Gaetano Sciolari

About

An unusual Italian chrome pendant light attributed to Gaetano Sciolari, circa 1970s the rectangular stem supporting a pierced box shade enclosing four lights, measure: 103cm high, 60cm wide, 26cm deep This light was part of Gaetano Sciolar’s Lightolier’s cubic series. Gaetano Sciolari (1927-1994), (designer) Sciolari was born in 1927 and after graduating with a degree in architecture, he began training as a film director. When his father died unexpectedly in 1949, he returned home to run the family business, Sciolari Lighting, which was originally founded in 1892. In the 1950s, Sciolari became the in-house designer for legendary lighting manufacturer Stilnovo—founded by designer Bruno Gatti in Milan in 1946. In the latter part of the 1960s, Sciolari's designs for his own manufacturing company were highly sought-after with high-end interior designers in Europe and the United States. This body of work was influenced by a range of art movements, from Cubism and Deconstructivism, to Minimalism, but always exhibited a sophisticated, sculptural, and even futuristic interpretation. He utilized crystal and ice glass while juxtaposing highly polished metals against satin finishes, including the unconventional combination of brass with chrome. Sciolari was the founder and first president of the trade association of Italian manufacturers of lighting fixtures. He died in 1994.
