Angelo Lelli (february 6, 1915–1979). born paolo angelo lelli in ancona, angelo lelii moved with his family to milan, where he worked and married monza-born rosa bianca bussetti. the couple moved to monza after marriage, and although the biographical information available is scarce, we know that he began manufacturing lamps in his monza house in 1943 and that in 1946 he advertised his tris lamp at the domus magazine. Angelo lelli’s lamps and lighting objects stand out for their extremely simple designs that strive for minimal complexity and for their strong sense of unadorned sensitivity. thanks to Angelo Lelii’s unique approach to design, arredoluce quickly built a reputation for creating premium quality products based on clean, simple, and functional designs. the most well-known designs of Angelo Lelii are the triennale floor lamp model 12128 (1947) and the cobra table lamp (1964), which became famous for its unique shape and for the low voltage used by incorporating the transformer in its base. his other iconic lights are the tris lamp (1946), the eye floor light (1950), the stella ceiling light (1950), and the president table lamp (1970).
