Angelo Lelli was an Italian designer and entrepreneur.
His passion for design started in the basement of his house and his pieces were later featured in the Domus magazine directed by Gio Ponti in 1946.
As the founder of the Italian lighting manufacturer Arredoluce, Lelli had a prominent role in the Italian post-war economic renaissance, especially in the realm of design.
Throughout his prolific career, he designed hundreds of innovative lamps. The latter are still very sought-after in the design market. Lelli’s avantgarde creations range from table lamps to standing lamps, wall appliques and chandeliers. Most of his designs were conceived together with masters of design and architecture, such as Franco Albini, Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, Gio Ponti and Ettore Sottsass.
