GINO SARFATTI LIGHTS
Renowned Italian artist Gino Sarfatti dubbed the ‘Master of Light’ is a key established figure in the world of design, helping to shape the modern Italian architectural movement. Born in Venice in 1912, Sarfatti went on to specialise in aeronaval engineering at the University of Genoa, beginning work in the lighting sector in 1939, where he set up ‘Arteluce’ a national and international reference point for the modern architecture movement in lighting. During a span of thirty years, Sarfatti designed over 400 lighting fixtures, researching into typology, production technologies and design aspects. Sarfatti experimented with new materials, production methodologies and light sources, first working with plexi-glass in 1951 and designing the first lamp to use halogen bulbs in 1971.
