From an analysis of the original parts of the Lampiatta, made available by Donato D’Urbino and Paolo Lomazzi. Through their shared endless passion and thanks to their formidable memory, even if there were no technical drawings to refer to, it was possible to rebuild the Lampiatta in almost all its original versions.
"Lampiatta was created from the desire to remove articulated parts and mechanisms, we took away everything that we could, thinking of embrasures (or arrow slits) where we could insert this “English helmet” so as to deflect the light. The light bulb had a special coloured covering that served to soften the light on the eyes, and which was in line with the English helmet … Not only is it for tables, but with a small device it can be mounted on a wall, and later the idea to let it hang came about ..."
D’Urbino and Lomazzi, from an interview given (March 2013) at the DePas D’Urbino Lomazzi Studio in Milan.
Founded in Milan in 1946 by Bruno Gatta, Stilnovo was for years one of the most important actors in the world of lighting equipment design. It was a laboratory and a hotbed for ideas during the post-war reconstruction and the economic boom that followed.
Stilnovo triggered interest from the historical publication "Domus", to become an essential point of reference for prestigious names in Italian design, such as Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, Joe Colombo, Danilo and Corrado Aroldi, De Pas D'Urbino Lomazzi Studio, Ettore Sottsass, Cini Boeri and Gae Aulenti who all designed memorable pieces for this small Milanese company. In order to pick up the traces of Stilnovo and bring them into the future a Scientific Committee was formed comprised of illustrious names in the fields of lighting design, design history, sociology, art direction and architecture. The team has produced a Manifest outlining the guidelines and criteria for future creations and defining the identity of a brand name which not only refuses to ignore its historical past but aims to exalt it.
