The Model 548 table lamp is a study in balance and light reflection through a screen, a recurring theme in Gino Sarfatti’s work. This iconic lamp, designed in 1951, provides both reflected and diffused light due to the adjustable spotlight that is directed up towards a reflecting screen.

The large methacrylate diffuser provides a highly sophisticated light effect and is an essential part of the illusion and the play with perception. The spotlight is mounted on a tubular stem in polished or burnished brass, while a small brass bar at the base serves as a counterweight, completing the beautiful balancing act of the individual elements of Model 548.

In the re-issue, the original incandescent bulb has been replaced by an LED source, and an optical dimmer switch has been integrated discreetly into the original design.
