Rare suspension lamp by Angelo Lelii for Arredoluce Monza, Italy, circa 1958.
Wonderful and rare 28“ x 20“ suspension light by Angelo Lelii.
Certainly inspired by Piet Mondrian and paintings from the suprematism movement, the design by Lelii is based on the modern grid, translated into a lacquered brass structure containing the cables of the fixture.
The opaline glass elements are piercing through, as well as a red brass (junction) box with a weight to counterbalance the glass.
It is in such good condition considering age and use, the piercing opaline glasses show one little chip, the lacquered grid has got some rub-offs and minimal deformation at one point.
It’s a a scarce collectible piece that we left untouched besides cleaning it; the original cables are in place but will be rewired if wished so by the client.
Five bulbs with 60W max e27 (EU) or e26 (US). Led’s are possible, dimming also (depending on the bulb used). It casts a beautiful light, perfect for a medium to larger table or hallway.
Dimensions: 19.5″ x 28.34″ x 11.81″ / 31.5″ (total drop)
