The Model 2042 ceiling lamp by the lighting brand Astep is composed of 6 round opal glass diffusers with steel ring structures. You can place the glass spheres on the rings either way around and thus alter the lamp's look and intensity of light. The bold yet streamlined Model 2042 will find its place in many kinds of spaces, be it a living room, hallway, kitchen or bedroom.

The Model 2042 ceiling light is part of the Le Sfere collection created by the legendary Italian lighting designer Gino Sarfatti in 1959. Sarfatti sought inspiration for his work from natural light and the sky, and the lamps of the Le Sfere collection were influenced by the soft light and round shape of the Moon. The collection consists of a diverse range of luminaires that all have two things in common: white light diffused through opal glass and a modern, graphic touch of the metal rings. The Le Sfere lamps are made in Italy and are equally well suited for private and public spaces.

Gino Sarfatti

Italian designer Gino Sarfatti (1912-1985) was a master of lighting design and founder of the lighting brand Arteluce. Sarfatti was born in Venice and moved to Genoa to study aeronautical engineering until he was forced to interrupt his studies in the late 1930s due to the war. Sarfatti founded Arteluce in Milan in 1939. In 1943, he and his family had to flee from Italy to Switzerland but returned after the war to Milan to reorganize Arteluce’s production. The 1950s was a golden era for Arteluce: in 1954, two of Sarfatti’s lamps were awarded the Grand Prix at Milan’s Triennale, and in the two following years his designs received the Compasso d’Oro award. In 1973, Sarfatti sold Arteluce to the Italian lighting manufacturer Flos who continues the production of Sarfatti’s design classics.
