Founded after the Second World War, Milanese lighting manufacturer Stilnovo (a name meaning ‘New Style’) was started in 1946 by Bruno Gatta, a designer trained during the Mussolini years. Stilnovo would become a significant part of the first wave of post World War II Italian design companies specializing in innovative, mass-market consumer products. Working with a number of celebrated designers, including Gaetano Scolari, Alberto Fraser, Cini Boeri, and Ettore Sottsass, as well as producing designs under the company name Stilnovo, the lighting became acclaimed for its use of new materials, advanced finishes, and forward-thinking design.


Perhaps the height of Stilnovo’s creative output were the designs produced in the 1950’s. The lighting created by Stilnovo during this decade was innovative and embodied the sleek, stylish profiles that typify Italian design. Working with some of the best designers of the period the company created striking works that still resonate ‘New Style’ today.
