Angelo Lelii ‘Leaf’ Wall Lamps in Hammered Brass

$5,400per set

About

Angelo Lelii, ‘leaf’ wall lights, brass, Italy, circa 1951 These one-of-a-kind wall lights by Angelo Lelii strongly remind of his chandelier model 12369, which we currently have in our collection too. In a period of his career, Lelii designed exquisite lamps with natural shaped leaves. On a bent arm the organically formed shade is attached. The hammered, perforated brass has a vivid texture and contributes to the striking look of this lamp. Patina on the brass contributes to the admirable look of the leaves. Paolo Angelo Lelii (1911-1979) was born in Ancona, Italy. After his studies at the Superior Institute of Industrial Art, Milan, he lived and worked in Monza. From 1943, Lelii started manufacturing lamps in his own house and in 1946 he advertised his well-known 'Tris' lamp in Domus magazine. It was in 1947 that he founded Arredoluce in Monza, a premier manufacturer of furniture and lighting. In the same year, he exhibited the lamp 12128 at the VII Triennale di Milano, which became known as the Triennale floor lamp. He became an influential designer in Postwar Italy, especially in the field of modern lighting design. During the 1950s, Arredoluce started to collaborate with designers such as Franco Albini, Achille Castiglioni, Gio Ponti, and Ettore Sottsass and also began to experiment with halogen light bulbs for his designs, which lead to the recognizable Arredoluce switch. Thanks to Angelo Lelii’s unique approach to design, Arredoluce quickly built a reputation for creating premium quality products based on clean, simple, and functional designs.
