A main figure of the architectural debate in the post war period and an original interpreter of European Rationalism, Viganò was unanimously considered by critics the most important Italian exponent of the ‘Brutalism’ current.

Astep expands the 'Le Sfere' Solar System

A new remarkable ceiling light from the Le Sfere luminaire system by Italian lighting master Gino Sarfatti is now reintroduced by Astep as part of the prestigious Flos with Sarfatti collection. The luminaire features six opaline glass spheres, which are inspired by the natural poetry of the Moon and capture the delicate moonlight in a gracious design.

Meet the Designer 

Vittoriano Vigano

Vittoriano Viganò was born in Milan in 1919 and was immersed in art and culture from a young age thanks to his father, Vico Viganò, a painter and engraver. Vittoriano developed a passion for design and enrolled in the school of architecture at the Politecnico di Milano, graduating in 1944.

After World War II, Vittoriano had a brief apprenticeship at BBPR, obtained a master’s degree in construction and the use of reinforced concrete with famed engineer Arturo Danusso and also served as an assistant to Gio Ponti in the department of interior architecture, furniture and decoration.

In 1947, Viganò opened his own studio and started a long-term collaboration with Gino Sarfatti and his highly influential lighting company Arteluce. He also began a 16-year editorial contribution with the French magazine L’architecture d’aujourd’hui directed by his friend French sculptor André Bloc.

Vigano passed away in 1996 leaving a celebrated legacy of inspired brutalist architecture, progressive views on contemporary design and timelessly modern lighting solutions.
