Pair of 1950s Diablo sconces by Giuseppe Ostuni for O-Luce.


Executed in black painted metal and brass. A sculptural and refined wall lamp reminiscent of a contemporary midcentury Stilnovo design, the shade rotates freely on the trademark Oluce designed brass 'lipstick' swiveling double ball joint. O-Luce was one of the most innovative lighting design companies in Italy during the midcentury era. Their exceptionally refined designs have been long sought after by collectors in the know.


Price is for the pair.
