A pair of wall lamps Model 50 by Gino Sarfatti for Arteluce, 1968
Two off-white lacquered wall lamps Model 50 by Gino Sarfatti for Italian lighting manufacturer Arteluce.
Marco Romanelli and Sandra Severi describe this wall lamp in 'Gino Sarfatti, Selected works 1938-1973 ': "A direct wall fixture designed in 1968, has a support rod in white painted aluminium, on which 5 sockets for 25w bulbs with E14 bases are directly mounted. The bar is equipped with a plug on the side, so it can be placed at the top or side of a mirror." Romanelli and Severi as well indicate that Gino Sarfatti saw Model 50 as a "make-up light" for backstage in the theatre.
The condition of the lamps is very good, they do not have any scratches or dents. However, because of their age the colour of the lamps changed however from white to off-white. We have a third version in our collection.
The price is for the pair.
