Astep/Flos 'Le Sfere' Range by Gino Sarfatti
The focal point of Astep’s exhibition at Palazzo Litta during the 2018 Milan Design Week is an ingenious, multifaceted luminaire design series by Gino Sarfatti from 1959 that has not been in production since the 1970s.
Le Sfere di Gino Sarfatti is inspired by the perfect light and natural poetry of the Moon. It is reintroduced by Astep as the latest addition to the collection Flos with Sarfatti – a tribute to the great Italian master of light, created in collaboration between Astep and Flos.
Le Sfere features a simple, yet elegant principle in which a blown opaline glass sphere is held in place by a painted aluminium ring in a refined embrace that lends the luminaire a graphic expression. The various models of the collection have developed over time, from the first single sphere, Model 237, to the iconic twenty-four-sphere chandelier, Model 2109 – the exact two models that are now presented by Astep.
About Astep / After decades of iconic forward forcused lighting designs, the Sarfatti tradition is continued into a third generation. At the heart of Astep is the desire to step into the future and embrace new technology while maintaining the utmost reverence for what has been – coupling the work of great minds of the past with the great minds of the present.
