Gino Sarfatti

Floor lamp model 1050/1

Gino Sarfatti
Floor lamp model 1050/1

Maker: Arteluce
Italy
ca. 1955
Painted metal, brass, marble
82 h in.

This floor lamp is a variation of the 1050/1 floor lamp.  This custom model was commissioned by architect and architecture historian Liliana Grassi, who was a friend of Gino Sarfatti, for her house in Milan.  The lamp was designed by Gino Sarfatti and made by Arteluce circa 1955, and varies from the other 1050/1 lamps in that its base is made out of a circular marble as opposed to the metal ribbon-shape base used in the other 1050/1 floor lamps.  The 1050/1 lamp design shows a marked influence of architect Vittoriano Viganò, who was the artistic director of Arteluce in the early 1950’s while Sarfatti spent time in the US, by using a long metal arm with a cone-shape shade as the only source of light and a metal concave circular shape that functions both as an ornamental element that brings sculptural harmony to the lamps, as well as a surface to reflect and diffuse the light emanating from the cone shade.
