Modern and minimalistic pair of ‘Model 232’ wall lamps designed by Bruno Gatta and manufactured by Stilnovo in Italy in 1954. The striking bowl-shaped shades rest on bended slim black painted metal arms. The white finished wall mounts give a nice contrast with the black. These are held in place by two visible screws. A nice design feature is that they look bold from the front but when viewed from the side they are super minimalistic. These versatile lamps can also be used as ceiling fixtures. Their neutral color scheme make that they go with any interior style. Easy to install on walls or ceilings thanks to Gatta’s clever hanging system, a strong feature of Stilnovo designs.


Kindly note that the listed price is per lamp.


Bruno Gatta was the director and head of design from Stilnovo almost during the entire period. He founded the Stilnovo publishing house in 1946 in Lainate, an industrial suburb of Milan. Despite its small scale, Stilnovo operated according to a true industrial logic from 1952-1955 – unlike other Italian brands, such as Arredoluce and O’Luce. Experimentation with new materials and shapes is at the heart of its production method. Until the second half of the 1960s, most of the designs were made by the company’s technical office, which was led by Bruno Gatta, then headed by Gaetano Scolari and bore the brand’s signature. Bruno Gatta died in 1976 in his birthplace Linate.
