In my work on light, I never thought of light as an object of serial use, but as an expression in my artistic works: it is an expression of my work, made possible by the use of many reflective materials to structure new surfaces with light.NANDA VIGO
Icon of Arredoluce, symbol of an era and source of inspiration for many objects to follow over time, Triennale is perhaps the best known project by Angelo Lellii. Presented at the VII Milan Triennale in 1947, it is a floor lamp with a linear structure and three adjustable arms, each ending with a diffuser coloured in red, yellow and blue.
Icon of Arredoluce, this lamp became history when it was included in the supply that the brand sent to the Kennedy family, and was designed by Angelo Lelii in the early Fifties. It is a table lamp with an enameled shade that can be moved up and down to adjust the intensity of the light, which also filters through the star-shaped decorations.
Between 1957 and 1970 the association between Angelo Lelii and Gio Ponti, probably the most famous Italian architect and designer, is at its highest. Witness to this relationship is Pavone, a spectacular suspension lamp where two concentric circles of illuminating spheres are supported by a complex brass ogive structure.
A lamp and a sculpture with a vertical layout, Cobra was one of the first lamps to use an adjustable magnetized globe. Designed by Angelo Lelii, it is a classic both for its elegant shape, reminding a piece of art by Brancusi, and for the technical skills required in the manufacturing process.
Suspension lamp of botanical inspiration, Soffione has been designed by Angelo Lelii in 1963. The central illuminating sphere is retained by a brass structure which gives the lamp a compact and vaguely futuristic look.
