Italian Midcentury Table Lamp by Aldo Tura for Aldo Tura Milano, circa 1950s

About

Mid-Century Modern turned burl olive wood lantern table lamp with brass bulb cage and handle. In original condition with original foil label. Born in 1909, Italian designer-maker Aldo Tura established his furniture production house in Lombardy in 1939. Working between the idioms of Art Deco and Modernism, Tura created singular, high-end furniture and accessories that were typified by rich materials, sculptural forms, and high-end, artisanal techniques. Tura’s work has become highly collectible, especially examples with exotic finishes, like eggshell, goatskin, and parchment, in intense palettes of red, green, and yellow. Tura was one of the most unique design talents of the Italian midcentury. In the postwar years, as many furniture producers were adjusting their production methods toward mass production, Tura remained committed to slow, traditional hand craftsmanship. He favoured intricate, complex forms and labour-intensive processes that could never by replicated in a large scale factory system. As a result, the number of works by Tura available on the vintage market remains limited.
