Angelo Gaetano Sciolari (1927-1994) was the owner of Sciolari Lighting and designer for Italian manufacturer Stilnovo in the 1950s. There he created a series of multi-light chandeliers evoking futuristic visions of the nascent space age, the "SPUTNIK" chandeliers. Throughout the 1960s, 70s and 80s, his creations were in great demand and were imported into the American market by Lightolier & Progress Lighting and into Europe by Boulanger (Belgium), Mazzega (Italy), etc. During this same period, his lighting fixtures regularly appeared on television and in films because of their luxurious, futuristic or Hollywood Regency-style appearance. Some of his designs bore a striking resemblance to the work of Paul Evans and Curtis Jere.

Despite his death in 1994, Sciolari's creations gained in popularity and demand, becoming sought-after collector's items and fetching high retail prices. Here are a few well-known series: The Geometric series, the Habitat series, the Cultura series and the Futura series. Renowned interior designer Veere Grenney often uses Sciolari, having recently updated a house designed by John Nash Round, the architect of Buckingham Palace and much of Regency London, with a Sciolari fixture that he described as "a piece of sculpture on the ceiling". A Sciolari chandelier now hangs in Howard Hughes' former mansion, a Spanish colonial hacienda in the Hancock Park section of Los Angeles...
