For those of you, who didn’t hear of Gino Sarfatti before, you must know that he was one of the most prominent figures in lighting design from the Italian afterwar period. To him are recognized over 400 different lighting projects for Artelucem, the producer company which was created in 1939 and afterward acquired by Flos in 1974.
The chandelier 2097 is an essential item in the catalog of Arteluce because it represents the re-incarnation of modern light. Its shape refined and rationalized, made of a one-piece central unit in steel with chandelier arms in brass. All flexible cables, along with lighting bulbs, remain insight: these raw and bald characteristics inherently connects with the symmetry and the integrity of this modern piece. Hereafter, this chandelier 2097 is part of an edition series of classical pieces signed by Flos and distinguishes the end of an era obsessed by exploring the possibility of using new materials such as plastics and forging futuristic and egregious space shapes, signing a new design for lighting.
Do you love its design? Would you like to have such a statement chandelier in your home? Let me know in the comment section below what do you think about it.
Thank you for your interest in design, a field that I love the most, and which I am so pleased to share with all of you, my dear readers!
