About this product
- DescriptionThe Senate may have tried legislating the lightbulb, but only one person has ever truly loved it, and that was Italian designer Gi Sarfatti (1912-1985). After abandoning his studies in aeronautical engineering for financial reasons, Sarfatti founded the internationally rewned interior design firm Arteluce. In his 30-year career, Sarfatti designed and produced more than 600 lighting fixtures--from the globular and mobile to the mushroomed, coiled and woven--continuously exploring invative new ways of manufacturing and shaping the bulbs, cords and stands that light our interior worlds, even making pioneering use of halogen bulbs in fixtures as early as 1971. His preference for the status of technician over artist may have contributed to his lack of recognition in the art world, but this publication amply makes up for the oversight and illuminates his many achievements in more than 1,000 images.
