Gino Sarfatti wall lamp model 3 Arteluce Italy 1950

About the Item

Rare Model 3 wall lamp designed by Gino Sarfatti and manufactured by Arteluce Italy 1950. This wall lamp by Gino Sarfatti is super rare, and you hardly ever find it for sale. It's got a shade you can move around, and it's made of black-painted aluminum with a plexiglass cover to spread the light nicely. It's still in excellent shape and is completely untouched. The plexiglass part is held in place by three screws and sits a bit away from the base. The lamp is attached to a chrome arm that bends at the end and goes through a black cylinder-shaped base. Literature; Gino Sarfatti selected works 1938-1973 Marco Romanelli Sandra Severi 2012, page 384 This lamp is checked in our own atelier, cleaned and is suitable for use in the USA. 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.
