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.
Gino Sarfatti gradually expanded the collection to fit larger commissioned projects. Among them is the famous Teatro Regio in Turin, Italy, where Le Sfere can still be seen in a variety of compositions, including cascades and columns, that emphasise the genius and beauty of the system.

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.
Gino Sarfatti is considered the godfather of modern Italian lighting. From the 1930s to the 70s, Sarfatti created over 700 floor lamps, pendant lights, table lamps, spotlights and chandeliers. Sarfatti's dedication to innovation has meant his products have stood the test of time, looking as fresh today as the day they were first designed.
The focal point of Astep’s exhibition at Palazzo Litta during this year’s Milan Design Week is an ingenious, multifaceted luminaire design by Gino Sarfatti from 1959 that has not been in production since the 1970s.
