About

Gino Sarfatti model no. 2065 ceiling lamp. Designed in 1950, this is an authorized 2017 Astep/Flos re-edition by Alessandro Sarfatti, grandson of Gino Sarfatti, who applies his grandfather's scrupulous attention to detail and materials to offer a tightly curated selection of iconic lighting originally produced by Arteluce. Professionally rewired for US electrical. Unused in original factory box. Price is per item. 7 lamps in stock. Available in unlimited quantities. Please note that in-stock availability is subject to change at any time. Allow additional 3-4 weeks for items not in stock. Can take up to 8 weeks or more. All sales are final. Model 2065 consists of a diffuser made of two joined opalescent perspex saucers, suspended from the ceiling with a black-painted aluminum canopy and black or white cord. The simplicity of Gino Sarfatti’s elliptical design and the lightness of the materials make for a seemingly weightless chandelier. An iconic example of Sarfatti's innovative and experimental approach. Please note that these are unused new in box with professionally modified European wiring for US compatibility, but not under factory warranty. Not UL listed, but recommended UL listing available from authorized 3rd party vendor upon request for an additional fee. Ref Literature: M. Romanelli, S. Severi, "Gino Sarfatti opere scelte 1938 - 1973", Cinisello Balsamo 2012.

About the Designer

Gino Sarfatti

That a spiky, futuristic chandelier named “Sputnik,” which was highly suggestive of the Soviet satellite of the same name, designed by an Italian engineer could predate the space age and the satellite’s launch by a few decades is the stuff of legend. But in 1939, Venetian-born Gino Sarfatti channeled his obsession with light and expert engineering skills into a design so bold it predicted the future. He would go on to design around 700 lighting products in his lifetime — each table lamp, wall light, pendant and chandelier superb and unorthodox in shape.

Sarfatti’s singular focus on creating opulent lighting designs that were rational in their use of resources makes him one of the most innovative lighting designers in history. He was studying to be an aeronautical engineer at the University of Genoa when his family’s financial troubles led him to drop out and move to Milan to help. During this time, he built a lamp for a friend using a coffee machine’s electric components and a glass vase. This exercise sparked his fascination with lighting, and he went on to found Arteluce in 1939. What followed was a period of working with skilled artisans and tinkering with materials instead of sketching. The self-taught designer soon established himself as a creator of provocative, sculptural luxury lighting. Through the company, he collaborated with some of the 20th century’s most influential designers, such as Vittoriano Viganò, who worked on Arteluce lighting between 1946 and 1960. In the 1950s and ’70s, Franco Albini, Franca Helg, Ico Parisi and Massimo Vignelli all contributed designs.

Sarfatti used resources mindfully and injected functionality into everything he designed. His light fixtures were lightweight, easy to take apart and reassemble and could be affordably repaired. This marriage of utilitarianism and glamour lent Sarfatti’s designs a clean, minimal yet arresting splendor, based on their graphical forms and construction.

After World War II, Sarfatti embraced new wiring technologies and materials like plexiglass, such as his 1972 project with Carlo Mollino that filled the Teatro Regio in Turin with hundreds of plexiglass pipes. In 1973, Sarfatti sold Arteluce to FLOS. His foresight, invention and fearlessness as a designer are revered to this day.
