Gino Sarfatti

Born in Venice in 1912, Gino Sarfatti studied aeronautical engineering but after his first encounter with the lighting design in Milan, during an engineering project for transforming a glass vase into a lamp, he found out his passion for lighting, destined to shape his whole life. He founded the company Arteluce that starts a new way of creating lighting systems with a groundbreaking design. His double approach as engineer on one hand and as designer on the other hand reflects itself in a beautiful and functional aestethics, given by the use of innovative materials, advanced lighting technologies and production techniques. Gino Sarfatti, with the creation of over 700 lamps, is considered one of the most representative figure in the history of the Italian industrial design.
