Fancy a little time travel? For those who dare, Stilnovo Furniture makes rather easy work of traveling "back to the future."
While family businesses like Azucena dominated the Italian design landscape in the first half of the 20th Century, large-scale production brands like Stilnovo emerged post-WWII. Focused on aligning mass production with both new materials and modernly fearless design, Stilnovo pieces include furniture, but have always primarily consisted of lighting. Their early lighting, like the work of Robert Sonneman, reflects a space-age obsession, featuring constellation-like pendants and saucer-shaped sconces, glamorously clad in finishes like brass and chrome.
