Milano 1946 – 1988
Exceptional pair of Model 2061 wall lamps designed by Gaetano Sciolari and produced by Stilnovo in Italy in 1954. These are the rare first productions made from brass, featuring a different wall plate. They’re in fully original condition and still bear the original Stilnovo sticker inside the shades. What makes these lamps unique is their adjustable design. You can change their length using the weight on the table and the in length adjustable arm which also pivots. Finding a pair of these lamps is a rarity. They are however individually priced and sold.
Sciolari was born in 1927. After graduating with a degree in architecture, he began training as a film director. When his father died unexpectedly in 1949, he returned home to run the family business, Sciolari Lighting, which was originally founded in 1892. In the 1950s, Sciolari became the in-house designer for legendary lighting manufacturer Stilnovo—founded by designer Bruno Gatta in Milan in 1946. In the postwar era, many Italian design companies, Stilnovo in particular, were attracting international acclaim for their experimentation with new materials and streamlined silhouettes. Stilnovo, alongside Arteluce and Arredoluce, was among the top Italian light manufacturers, known for their exceptional craftsmanship and design excellence.
