Bringing back a classic design Astep introduces Le Sfere in clear glass.
Originally conceived by Gino Sarfatti as part of Le Sfere family of luminaires this addition adds to the luxurious depth and versatility of the collection.
The sophisticated airiness of the transparent glass combined with the distinctive black finish makes it a beautiful accent light in any space. Conceived from 1959, Le Sfere Collection is a family of glass lamps revolving around a single luminous sphere held in place by a painted aluminium ring. A simple, yet elegant principle: “This new edition in clear glass beautifully emphasizes the graphic expression of the collection and brings forth its distinctive contemporary aesthetic, suitable for all types of spaces, bothprivate and public,” says Alessandro Sarfatti founder of Astep.
From Model 237, consisting of a single sphere, to Model 2109, that of the iconic twenty-foursphere chandelier, this family of luminaires, the largest designed by Sarfatti, was gradually expanded to fit larger commissioned projects. Among them is the famous Teatro Regio in Turin, Italy, designed by architect
Carlo Mollino, where Le Sfere can still be seen in a variety of compositions, including generous ‘cloudlike’ cascades and columns, curated by Sarfatti, which emphasize the genius and beauty of the system.
But above all, Le Sfere is a multifaceted and open lighting system, created from the same fundamental principle: a beautiful interpretation of the perfect luminous sphere.
