Earlier today we looked at the Milan apartment of designer Pietro Russo; now we’re turning our attention to his artful lighting designs. “I prefer materials like marble, iron, brass, and wood, and I avoid resins and plastics,” he says. “Like people, they age well.” Contact Pietro Russo directly for ordering information.
