Angelo Lelii, founded Arredoluce in 1947 and started as a premier manufacturer of furniture and lighting in Monza but within the passing of years he became an influential designer especially in the field of modern lighting design. During the 1950's, Arredoluce started to collaborate with such designers as Franco Albini, Achille Castiglioni, Gio Ponti, Ettore Sottsass, and Nanda Vigo and also began to experiment with halogen light bulbs for its designs. Thanks to Angelo Lelii’s unique approach to lighting design, Arredoluce quickly built a reputation for creating premium quality lights based on clean, simple, and functional designs.
