Table lamp, Astep, 548, Gino Sarfatti, 1951
The table lamp designed in 1951 is a study in balance and light reflection through a screen, a recurring theme in Gino Sarfatti’s work. Model 548 provides both ref lected and diffused light due to the adjustable spotlight that is directed up towards a reflecting screen.
The large diffuser in orange, blue or grey methacrylate provides a highly sophisticated light effect and is an essential part of the illusion and the play with perception. The spotlight in white painted aluminium is mounted on a tubular stem in polished or burnished brass, while a small brass bar at the base serves as a counterweight in the beautiful balancing act of the individual elements of Model 548.
In the re-issue, the original incandescent bulb has been replaced by an LED source, and an optical dimmer switch has been integrated discreetly into the original design.
