Floor lamp by Gaetano Sciolari
Gaetano Sciolari is an Italian designer and entrepreneur who made significant contribution to the success of Italian Design all over the world. After graduating in Architecture, he further explored his passion of cinema and filmmaking but after his father’s death in 1949 Sciolari had to manage the family business of light production. The family had been in the lighting business since 1892, according to a biography- practically since electricity was invented. In just a few years, the designer transformed the business into an international enterprise and became the first Italian lights seller in the US. Gaetano was a brilliant businessman, but he was also a prolific and talented designer and worked for the great names of design such as Stilnovo & Boulanger. During his career he designed incredible and beautiful lights such as this lamp (circa 1950), and the famous “Cubic chandelier” - also part of our new collection.
