Sciolari Lighting is a company with a long and prestigious history. It was originally founded more than a century ago in 1892, and it quickly became known as a company that could be relied upon to produce beautiful products that also exemplified the highest quality workmanship. However, it was Gaetano Sciolari, born in 1927, who truly put Sciolari Lighting on the map. After studying architecture in college, Gaetano Sciolari had decided to become a film director when he was compelled to return home by his father’s untimely death in 1949. In the 1950s, Gaetano Sciolari also became a designer for world-renowned lighting manufacturer Stilnovo, which catapulted his designs into the spotlight. He continued designing light fixtures throughout the 70s and 80s, drawing inspiration for his design from artistic movements such as cubism, deconstructivism, and minimalism. Sciolari passed away in 1994, but his designs remain popular around the globe.
