Re-Lighting Gino Sarfatti

13 - 03 - 2014

Salvioni participates to "Re-Lighting Gino Sarfatti" by Flos, which aims to "re-light" the work of what has been called the greatest twentieth-century lamp creator. It is a collection of remakes of some lamps by him that are sold exclusively at the showrooms selected to join the initiative, which aim both at abiding by the original model and bringing them back to the heart of daily life, adapting to new technologies such as LEDs. A project on the border between past and present that brings to light one of the most important exponents of Italian design of the twentieth century.

Gino Sarfatti was born into a wealthy Venetian middle class family of Jewish origin in 1939 and began his work as a rational lighter (as he called it ) founding the company "Arteluce". His company quickly became a landmark in modern design for the lighting industry and led him to design over 600 lamps in 30 years, which earned him the victory two "Compasso d'Oro" awards . Sarfatti's lamps pursued a constant quest for innovation thanks to the constant innovation in shapes, materials and production processes and helped to invent a variety of new types and functions which then become popular.

Among his works we mention the model 548, the first table lamp using methacrylate; the floor lamp model 1063, consisting primarily of a thin aluminium tube in which a long slimline transparent source is placed; the floor lamp model 1095 with indirect lighting , which is sylistically interesting according to the disproportion between the rounded base and the stem in polished alluminium that ends with a small reflective cup.
