Angelo Lelii was an influential lighting designer in postwar Italy. In 1947 he created Arredoluce and during the 1950s he started to collaborate with designers such as Franco Albini, Achille Castiglioni, Gio Ponti, Ettore Sottsass, and Nanda Vigo.
Thanks to Angelo Lelii’s unique approach to lighting design, Arredoluce quickly built a reputation for creating premium quality lights based on elegant, simple, and functional designs.
