ADJUSTABLE WALL LAMP
BY ANGELO LELLI
Italian lighting manufacturer Arredoluce was an important proponent of postwar Italian lighting design and was founded by designer and entrepreneur Angelo Lelli (or Lelii) (1911-1979). The real start of Arredoluce was 1947, the year after Lelli’s lamp designs were included in the well-regarded Domus magazine. The company stopped existing in 1979, when Lelli died.
This specific 1950s wall lamp is not depicted in the ‘catalogue raisonné’ of Arreduloce but variants of both a wall and a floorlamp are described and shown on pages 131, 278 and 284.
The lamp is made of brass, leather and lacquered metal and is adjustable in both height (via a counterweight) and length.
Width: 43cm (shade)
Depth: minimum 60cm, adjustable
Height: 15cm (shade), 25cm (mounting)
