Each Lamp takes a E27 bulb, 75 Watt max. Luciano Frigerio was the son of a cabinet-maker from Desio, near Milan. By the age of 25, he had trained with many of the master craftsmen of his day. He would visit their workshops when pieces were being made for maestros such as Messrs Giò Ponti, Franco Albini and Carlo de Carli and apply what he had learned to his own furniture. The results were highly original, eclectic pieces, masterful in their use of colour, finish and detail. In the 1970s Frigerio di Desio showrooms opened in cities all over Italy and Mr Frigerio himself completed many private commissions, among them two hand-carved lecterns for Pope John XXIII, which are still in the Basilica di San Pietro e Paolo in Rome today. “For many, Frigerio pieces are difficult to combine with contemporary furnishings, but they are much appreciated, especially for their use of brass, bronze and briar,” says Mr Albini.
