Gino Sarfatti model 36 sconces Arteluce Italy 1955

About the Item

Beautiful and clean pair of wall sconces model 36 designed by Gino Sarfatti and manufactured by Arteluce in Italy in 1955. What makes these sconces stand out is their flexibility. They have a smart ball joint mechanism, which means you can adjust them in any direction you like. The lamps consist of a stylish black metal cylinder, where the bulb goes, and this cylinder is firmly attached to a chrome arm with the ball joint. Inside the cylinder the lamp is branded with the Arteluce sticker. The horizontal chrome arm connects to a square metal plate, which you place on the wall. What's really cool about these sconces is their clean and simple design. They're made to blend into any room effortlessly, and you can point them in different directions depending on your lighting needs. So, whether you want focused light for reading or a softer glow for ambiance, these sconces can do it all. Priced and sold in a set of 2. This lamp is checked in our own atelier, cleaned and is suitable for use in the USA. Literature: Gino Sarfatti Galerie Christine Diegoni, page 37 Gino Sarfatti – born in Venice in 1912 and with an educational background in engineering – started designing lamps and founded the company ‘Arteluce’ (the art of lighting) in 1939. Arteluce quickly established itself as a leading actor in shaping the modern Italian architectural movement and became a meeting place and hub for many of the leading Italian mid-century designers, including Franco Albini, Gianfranco Frattini, Sergio Asti and Ico Parisi for example. Sarfatti designed over 400 lighting products and made a significant contribution to innovating lighting design by experimenting with new materials, production methodologies and light sources. In 1951, he first began to work with plexi-glass. Gino Sarfatti was the first to design a lamp that uses halogen bulbs back in 1971. Sarfatti and Arteluce received several design awards including e.g., the prestigious Compasso d’Oro in 1954 and 1955, and the Honorary Diploma at the Milan Triennale. Arteluce was sold to Flos in 1973 and took over production of many lights.
