Vittoriano Viganò’s work for Arteluce in the 1950s has become highly coveted and emblematic of the sculptural organic designs that emerged from post war Italy. The VV Cinquanta lighting series with its slender forms and ovoid shades perfectly showcase the lavish and gestural style that defined Italian modernism.
The Wall model is mounted on a brass fixture, allowing the reflector to rotate 350 degrees, and can be angled 160 degrees, providing a wide range of lighting compositions. The VV Cinquanta reflector is made of enameled spun aluminium, available in original Vittoriano Viganò colors.

Creating and curating lighting objects that honour and advance the evolution of lighting. Astep celebrates the work of both modernist era and contemporary designers who have focused on new technology developments to enhance modern living and carry the tradition of intelligent experimentation.
Vittoriano Viganò (1919 – 1996) is a celebrated Italian Architect and Designer. He is considered the father of Italian Brutalist architecture. In 1946 he became artistic and technical advisor to Gino Sarfatti at the lighting company Arteluce. During this time, he created iconic lighting that delivered beauty, balanced gravity and explored colour.
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.
