The Stilnovo brand was founded in 1946 by Bruno Gatta. During the first years Stilnovo was presented at various exhibitions and events, such as the Milan Triennale and the Moma in New York, and won several awards including the Compasso d'Oro. The Stilnovo brand boasts several collaborations with renowned Italian designers: Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, Joe Colombo, Angelo Mangiarotti, Ettore Sottsass, Gae Aulenti and many others. From these collaborations, iconic projects are born and are still known worldwide today: the Saliscendi, Topo, Valigia, Buonanotte, Lampiatta, Minibox lamps. In 1988 Stilnovo ends its journey but, in 2019, it is acquired by Linea Light Group, a lighting world leader that will relaunch the brand and give a contemporary and innovative touch to the iconic Stilnovo lamps.
