Pair of 1950s Gino Sarfatti Cylindrical Metal and Brass Sconces for Arteluce

$ 3,800
  • Description
    Pair of 1950s Gino Sarfatti Cylindrical Metal and Brass Sconces for Arteluce. Executed in black painted aluminum with a brass backplate. Double ball jointed arm allows flexible shade adjustments and multiple configurations. The simplicity of Sarfatti's design and the sculptural shaping of the materials make for an incredibly refined example of the lighting master's influential and iconic approach. Unmarked.

    Ref: M. Romanelli, S. Severi, Gino Sarfatti. Opere scelte 1938-1973, Silvana Editoriale, Cinisello Balsamo, 2012, p. 389.

    Arteluce was one of the most innovative lighting design companies in Italy during the midcentury era. Their designs have been long sought after by discerning collectors.
