Medium Vistosi Smoke Disc Four-Tier Chandelier, Italy c.1975

A medium, four tier Gino Vistosi smoke glass and chrome frame chandelier from the 1970s. In superb clean and sound condition. Ready to hang and use.

This item is the smaller of the two shown in these images - it’s hanging lower.

It's not a small light at 47 cm diameter and 40 cm high - it only appears comparatively small against the much larger version hanging with it.

These lights came from a magnificently designed and beautifully built home in Templestowe (outer North Eastern Melbourne).

The house was completed and decorated in 1979/1980 and all lights were purchased at Armadale Lighting - a high-end supplier of imported Italian and other European lighting at that time.

The interior fit out included huge fishtanks, open fireplaces, split level open plan living areas and double solid timber entrance doors. A total gem. This light was hanging low over a leather-upholstered bar in the living room. It's larger version was hanging in the centre of the living room, while just through an open doorway another large version hung over a massive Pierre Cardin chrome and brass dining table.

With deep pile carpets, raked ceilings, exposed beams and floor to ceiling windows the impression was total 1970s glamour - assertive, grand, luxurious but very relaxed, warm and comfortable.

We would have loved to see this interior preserved as it was but the first new owner since the house was built decided on complete modernisation. Eight of the lights and lamps listed on our website are preserved from that house. All are high quality and 1970s specific.
