The lamps designed by Angelo Lelli (or Lelii), (Ancona, 1915 - Monza, 1979) evoke, with their sculptural character and dynamic mechanisms, the art of Alexander Calder, Hans Arp and Constantin Brâncuși. After moving to Monza in the early '40s, Lelli started to produce lamps in the basement of his home, and in 1947 founded Arredoluce, one of the most prominent lighting Italian brands of the 20th century, standing out for its high-profile executive precision and clean design. In 1947 Lelli also exhibited his most iconic floor lamp, the "12128" at the Milan Triennale exhibition, followed by other well-known models such as the "Eye" (1950), the "Stellina” (1950), and the sculptural lamp “Cobra” (1964), a uniquely shaped piece which incorporates the transformer in its base. During the '50s, Arredoluce collaborated with Franco Albini, NandaVigo, Achille Castiglioni, Gio Ponti and Ettore Sottsass, while exporting products to the United States, experimenting with the use of halogen bulbs and perfecting its unique switches. Closed after Lelli's death, the company was recently relaunched as part of the Penta lighting group.
