Model 566 designed by Gino Sarfatti
A balanced elemental form
The luminaire stands poised, with implied forward motion, lightening the contrasting body tube which holds the characteristic Cornalux bulb.
Designed in 1956, the Model 566 embodies Gino Sarfatti’s reductive process, resulting in a balanced elemental form. The luminaire stands poised, with implied forward motion, lightening the contrasting body tube which holds the characteristic Cornalux bulb. The body tube is cleverly supported by a simple rubber ring that provides the perfect amount of friction for infinite adjustability. The base, originally made of cast-iron, is now made from an alloy of aluminium, magnesium, and copper, which provides better resistance to corrosion, produces no air pollution during production, and is recyclable. Punctuating the design, a familiar push-button on/off switch is incorporated in the base, providing a satisfying click.
