Gaetano Sciolari

Gaetano Sciolari
Angelo Gaetano Sciolari (1927-1994) was the owner of Sciolari Lighting and designer for the Italian manufacturer Stilnovo in the 1950s. It was during his time at Stilnovo that Sciolari created his most recognizable and famous designs, which evoked futuristic visions at the dawn of the space age. Throughout the 1960s, 70s, and 80s, his work was in high demand in Europe and beyond, and was even imported into the American market by Lightolier & Progress Lighting. Sciolaris pieces remain in high demand to this day. The geometric «Habitat», «Cultura» and «Futura» series are among his most popular works.
During the same period, Sciolaris design objects began to appear on television and in movies, often chosen for their luxurious and futuristic design. Recognition in this field was particularly symbolic for the designer, who had previously abandoned his passion for filmmaking to pursue architecture.
