Glamorous and iconic, the Gino Sarfatti Chandelier is a modernist take on a traditional chandelier. It is made up of either 30 or 50 candelabras, each attached to the central steel column by a straight arm. This is balanced by the exposed curve of each light’s cable, which is designed to mimic the shape of a classic chandelier. The result is a stunning suspension light, which makes an impressive feature in any room, particularly hallways, lounges and dining rooms. In larger spaces, try using a series of Sarfatti Light Chandeliers for maximum impact.
Introduced by Flos in 1958, the Sarfatti Chandelier is a classic of modern Italian lighting design. Like most of Sarfatti’s designs, the chandelier has purist beauty and technical styling. This no doubt stems from Sarfatti’s training in aeronaval engineering. This may also have contributed to his decision to identify his lamps by a numerical code, rather than a name. Both versions of this lamp were originally called the Model 2097/30 and Model 2097/50 Chandeliers. Among the Gino Sarfatti range you also find the Gino Sarfatti for Flos, Sarfatti Wall Light and Sarfatti Flos 18.
Gino Sarfatti studied at the University of Genoa. He worked with lighting and became internationally known when starting up the company, Arteluce. During his career Sarfatti designed and produced more than 400 different types of luminaires and used many design aspects to create his pieces of art . His use of materials, productions technologies, light sources and technical effects was very diverse. One of his most acknowledged and celebrated design is his 2097 pendant lamp.
