The sconces were created in a specialized lighting workshop in Milan (Italy) between 1960 and 1963, the artisans were inspired by the Mod. Diabolo of the Stilnovo Company makes a perfectly similar product that is 100% made in Italy. Founded in Milan by Bruno Gatta, in 1946, Stilnovo was for years the most important reality in the world of lighting equipment design. It was a laboratory and a hotbed of ideas during the post-war reconstruction and the following economic boom. Stilnovo triggered interest from the historical publication “Domus”, to become an essential point of reference for prestigious names in Italian design, such as Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, Joe Colombo, Danilo and CorradoAroldi, Roberto Beretta, Antonio Macchi Cassia, De Pas D’UrbinoLomazzi Studio, Ettore Sottsass, Cini Boeri and GaeAulenti who designed memorable pieces for this small Milanese company. What characterizes Stilnovo, in the 50s, is the production and marketing of lamps with a particular cone shape. At the time designed by the Centro Stile Interno, they became unique pieces. True symbols of the elegance of the 50s. In fact, they left an indelible mark on the design and fashion industry. Many companies and small craftsmen have created similar lamps, but in their products, they have always had to stick to and maintain the great quality of the original product.
