Flos with Sarfatti
April 2017

Relighting masterpieces

'In late 1973, my grandfather Gino Sarfatti sold his company, Arteluce, to Flos, a company renowned for artisanal lighting by the most influential designers of our times. Now, Flos and I have joined forces in selecting and reviving some of the Gino Sarfatti masterpieces that have fallen out of attention over the years, but seem more relevant and essential than ever.' - Alessandro Sarfatti, founder of Astep

In 2013, Flos introduced the ‘Re-lighting Gino Sarfatti’ collection, a re-issue of five carefully selected Gino Sarfatti luminaires with cutting-edge LED technology. In continuation of Gino Sarfatti´s dedication to innovation, the Re-lighting collection brings the luminaires into the present day without detracting anything from the original sophisticated designs.

Reuniting the legacy

The luminaire collection has now been reunited with the Sarfatti family in an extraordinary collaboration between Flos and Astep, two companies and families dedicated to consolidating the legacy, quality and pertinence of Italian design.

Under the name 'Flos with Sarfatti', the two companies will continue to explore and reintroduce the work of Gino Sarfatti, adding the iconic Model 2065, which was relaunched by Astep in 2016, to the collection in a consolidation of the collaboration.

'Flos with Sarfatti' is an exquisite collection of luminaires, designed by Gino Sarfatti. A tribute to the grand lighting master who designed over 600 lamps between 1939 and 1973, continuously updating traditional typologies, inventing new functions for light and adopting the latest light sources from fluorescent tubes to the first halogens. Many of these designs appear exceptional contemporary in terms of form, aesthetics and the relationship they establish with the people in the room, emphasizing Gino Sarfatti as one of the greatest Italian lighting designers.

3 Days of Design
May 2016

In April Astep launched their first range of products. Among these the revolutionary product Candela, designed by Francisco Gomez Paz. Candela continues the long tradition of Scandinavian flame luminaries by advancing the product with 21st century technology. From the heat of the flame, Candela produces its own electricity to provide a cosy LED illumination, while harvesting energy to charge mobile devices.

Lighting has always been at the center of life for founder Alessandro Sarfatti, working closely with his father Ricardo Sarfatti at Luceplan and studying the work of his grandfather, Gino Sarfatti. Each generation bringing an innovative direction to lighting and design.

By honoring the evolution in design, Astep will also be presenting re-edit iconic objects: timeless works by Gino Sarfatti and Vittoriano Viganò.
