Model 2065 - White Diffuser
Model 2065 by Astep
Design: Gino Sarfatti
The 2065 is made of two joined opaline methacrylate saucer-shaped diffusers suspended from the ceiling with a black painted aluminium canopy.
The simplicity of the design and lightness of the materials makes for an elegant and free-floating luminaire.
The suspension lamp designed in 1950 emphasises the innovative, experimental approach of Gino Sarfatti. At that time, the favoured material of the lighting industry was glass. But when Gino Sarfatti received the first samples of methacrylate in 1949–50, a new polymer plastic that was much 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. The luminaire was relaunched by Astep in 2016.
