2065 Pendant Light Design Gino Sarfatti Astep
The 2065 Pendant Light Design 1950 for Astep emphasises the innovative, experimental approach of Gino Sarfatti. At that time, the favoured material of the lighting industry was glass. When Gino Sarfatti received the first samples of methacrylate in 1949–50, a new polymer plastic’, mutch stronger and lighter than glass, his experiments led him to a new suspension lamp, Model 2065. As in so many of his designs, he continued to work with different compositions, dimensions and colour variants over the following years. 2065 Pendant Light consists of a diffuser made of two joined opalescent saucers, suspended from the ceiling with a black or a white canopy. The simplicity of Gino Sarfatti’s elliptical design and the lightness of the materials make for a seemingly weightless luminaire. The luminaire was relaunched by Astep in 2016, which also introduced a black version where the upper saucer is finished with a soft-touch coating. This leaves the lower diffuser as the only light source, creating a more intimate light space and a strong, graphic expression. The diameter of the 2065 pendant light is 50 cm.
