In the 1950’s, Sciolari made a switch to Italian manufacturer Stilnovo, where he became the first in-house designer. In this period, numerous Italian design agencies, including Stilnovo, gained worldwide recognition by experimenting with new materials and smooth shapes.
Late in the 1960’s, Sciolari is influenced more and more by different art movements: from cubism and deconstructivism to minimalism. He goes on to design various pendant lamps with increasing focus on refined and futuristic shapes. Sciolari innovates with straight lines in combination with materials like crystal, frosted glass, brass and chrome.
As his designs gain more and more attention, Sciolari starts collaborating with well-known lighting companies in both Europe and the U.S. From that moment, his popularity takes flight.
For instance, he delivers a large number of fixtures for Lightolier & Progress Lighting. The Geometric, Habitat, Scultura and Futura series are all in demand. The export of these fixtures results in vast sales figures and an exponential growth for Sciolari Lighting Roma.
In Europe, Sciolari designs a large number of fixtures for Belgian manufacturer S.A. Boulanger. Here too, straight lines, chrome and brass are the main focus. The designs of the hand of Angelo Gaetano Sciolari have recently come back into the spotlight. The range of special designs from the seventies has suddenly attracted a wave of admirers from a new generation. With the return of Pope, the characteristic light bulbs for these fixtures are also available once again.
