Model 607 Table Lamp

By Astep

£1,020.00

  • Description

    The table lamp designed in 1971 embodies Gino Sarfatti’s working method, where formal experimentation and technical innovation are closely linked. The luminaire is born from a desire to fit a halogen light bulb, a new light source at the time, and its transformer into a table lamp. The result, Model 607, is an outstanding design expression.

    This unique piece emits direct light and is made up of two elements mechanically snapped together: a flat, disc-shaped diffuser with a truncated cone section and an inclined parallelepiped base which gives the luminaire stability. Both elements are in painted aluminium, the diffuser with the special crackled finish so appreciated by Gino Sarfatti. The dimmer switch is placed at the front near the foot of the base.

    In the re-issue, the Model 607 has been upgraded with modern LED technology in an appreciation of the ultra-modern design.

    Gino Sarfatti
    Gino Sarfatti was born in Venice in 1912 and studied aeronaval engineering at the University of Genoa. From 1939 onwards he worked in the lighting sector and set up Arteluce which soon became a national and international reference point for the modern architecture movement in lighting. During his thirty years of activity, Gino Sarfatti designed and produced over 400 luminaires and carried out non-stop research into innovation as regards typology, materials, production technologies, light sources, technical lighting effects and design aspects. In the course of their work, Gino Sarfatti and Arteluce won numerous prizes and awards including the Compasso d'Oro in 1954 and 1955, and the Honorary Diploma of the Milan Triennale. Arteluce was also a meeting place and an important forum for many of the leading Italian designers in the 50s and 60s. The following worked with Arteluce: F. Albini - F. Helg, C. Belgioioso - Peressuti - E. Rogers, G.F. Frattini, V. Viganò, S. Asti, V. Latis, C. Santi, M. Vignelli, I. Parisi, U. Gregotti - L.Meneghetti - G. Stoppino, M. Huber. The prestigious Arteluce shop in Corso Matteotti was designed with M. Zanuso in 1951 followed, 10 years later, by the shop in Via della Spiga designed with V. Viganò, a lifelong friend. Gino Sarfatti died at Gravedona in 1984.
