Made by Astep

After decades of iconic forward forcused lighting designs, the Sarfatti tradition is continued into a third generation. At the heart of Astep is the desire to step into the future and embrace new technology while maintaining the utmost reverence for what has been – coupling the work of great minds of the past with the great minds of the present.

Astep is a design company that brings to the domestic landscape, the experience, knowledge and the future-oriented outlook that has been nurtured in founder Alessandro Sarfatti's family for three generations, and bridges it with the latest developments in digital technologies.

Astep represents an admiration for timeless inventions: objects that – regardless of when they were designed or made – retain their edge, their capacity to affect our lives, advancing the manner in which we live.
— Alessandro Sarfatti | Astep Founder

Designed by Vittoriano Viganò

Vittoriano Viganò was born in Milan in 1919. Son of the painter and engraver Vico Viganò, he graduated in Achitecture at the Polytechnic School of Milan in 1944.

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

Vittoriano was Art Director of Arteluce, the company founded by Gino Sarfatti, for some years and for Arteluce he designed numerous luminaires as well as the flagship store in via della Spiga in Milan.
