This volume presents the catalogue raisonné of documented Arredoluce production, counting 555 items including lamps and furnishings, narrating the history of the company and the designers who worked for it. Arredoluce was established in Monza in 1943 thanks to Angelo Lelii, a businessman and designer: his curiosity for innovations coming from abroad, together with his love for traditional materials and his obsessive attention for detail, have marked the Arredoluce production line. Arredoluce, which participated in Triennale di Milano international exhibitions between 1947 and 1960, could boast of the collaboration of important designers such as Gio Ponti, Ettore Sottsass Jr. and Nanda Vigo.
