Angelo Lelli Ceiling Lamp $90,000>
Nilufar Gallery

This suspension lamp was designed by Angelo Lelli and manufactured in Monza in 1955. It is an extremely rare, free-form cloud chandelier—one of only two known examples ever made. Fabricated in hand-hammered, lacquered aluminum, it features a unique adjustable globe made of brass and Plexiglas. This design was referenced in Arredoluce: Catalogo Ragionato 1943-1987, published by Silvana Editoriale in 2018 (pg. 162, 267; cat. 102). The price excludes taxes, shipping, and crating.

 

According to gallerist Nina Yashar, "In a room, it feels somehow like a surreal presence bringing in a ray of light piercing from a soft floating cloud."

 

Italian designer-entrepreneur Angelo Lelii (1911-1979) revolutionized the lighting industry with his company Arredoluce. Through high-quality materials and an inexhaustible commitment to innovative creativity, Lelli transformed lighting production into an art form.
