Rare Floor Lamps by Angelo Lelli for Arredoluce

If you collect Mid-Century then you already know how rare these lamps are. We just brought the two 1950s floor lamps back from our recent trip to Europe where we were able to acquire both lamps from an important collection. They are modern masterpieces and Angelo Lelli’s most ambitious designs. They were created for the celebrated Italian lamp manufacturer Arredoluce.

LEFT: This lamp features one of his iconic signature details… a pivoting and gimbaled brass eyeball. In addition it’s surrounded by orbiting rings… the look is very Space Age and influenced by celestial scientific instruments.SOLD

RIGHT: This example combines two of his most important lamp designs. The sleek conical floor lamp and the curved reflector from his sought after hanging lamp… a combination we have never seen. Its finished in a flat white and brass with a marble base. It was newly rewired.

We call these Angelo designs rare… but its beyond that. There is no record of either one ever coming to market and may even be a design prototypes… $8500 each
