Catalogue Note

Two other very similar versions of this model exist. Both were designed by Angelo Lelii and produced by Arredoluce, Monza, Italy circa 1946. Lelli's examples are both known as the 'Tris' lamp and possessed different details including a brass covered base and different joints. The frame of the 'Tris' lamp was either lacquered or covered in leather. The present lot was initially known as the 'Stelgioco' lamp, and later model no. 306. It was designed to be used in two different configurations and can transform into an upright standard lamp. Please see for further images. 

Sotheby's would like to thank Alessandro Padoan from the Arredoluce Archives as well as Thomas and Itsumi Bräuniger from the O-Luce Archives for their assistance with the cataloguing of this lot. The present model will be recorded in the forthcoming O-Luce catalogue raisonné, published by Luminaires-Moderniste.
