Description

2097/18 is a unique chandelier designed by Gino Sarfatti for the Italian brand Flos in 1958. The black steel frame of 2097/18 is surrounded by an atmospheric cluster of 18 LED bulbs. The power cords of the bulbs have not been hidden away, on the contrary: the freely flowing cords make an essential element of the chandelier’s design and give it a soft, organic character. 2097/18 is a combination of the flamboyance of traditional chandeliers and modernist style of the 1950s with a touch of simplistic, industrial aesthetics. With its diameter of 70 cm, 2097/18 catches the eye even in a large and open space, and its finely balanced elegance suits both classic and modern interiors.

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.
