Introducing Italian Lighting Design Brand Astep

Our new range of products, Good Form, continues to expand its repertoire of unique, legacy brands with the launch of 'Astep' – a company which creates and curates meaningful design objects with a focus on contemporary lighting.

Words by Emma Eagle

As collectors and retailers of modern design, we have always been enamoured by the effortless way that Italians can mix art with design and craftsmanship with industry.

Launching the Italian lighting brand ‘Astep’ in New Zealand is a very special opportunity and one we were immediately keen to be part of. The Astep ethos aligns perfectly with its mission to celebrate the iconic designers of the past alongside the contemporary visionaries of the future.

Started by Alessandro Sarfatti, Astep continues the legacy of his father (Ricardo Sarfatti, the co-founder of Luceplan) and grandfather. Alessandro's grandfather, the celebrated, pioneering designer Gino Sarfatti was the founder of Arteluce. This maker was ultimately purchased by Flos.

Honouring the vivid tradition and evolution of Italian design, Astep not only offers new designs but also bring back to life timeless works that were born from a forward-thinking attitude and maintain the capacity to affect and enlighten our lives today.

Astep products are exclusive to Good Form in New Zealand.
