The Model 537 table lamp is an outstanding luminaire that displays the virtuosity of Gino Sarfatti. The celebrated Italian master of light created Model 537 around 1950, and the elegant masterpiece is now reintroduced by Astep as part of the prestigious Flos with Sarfatti collection.

In its refined simplicity, Model 537 stands out owing to the combination of rich materials and ingenious, playful design. The large aluminium reflector in black or white is mounted asymmetrically on a brass stem, which is carefully twisted in a beautiful balancing act, coming to rest on an elegant marble base.

As a vital part of the design, the stem reaches out through the reflector and beyond in a backward motion, giving the top of the stem a dual function as playful feature and practical handle.

After decades of iconic forward focused 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.

Designed by Gino Sarfatti

Born in Venice in 1912, Gino Sarfatti studied to become an aeronautical engineer until family circumstances compelled him to relocate to Milan where he had his first encounter with lighting, an engineering project to transform a glass vase into a lamp. 

This encounter with lighting design and engineering shaped the path of his life. In 1939 Gino Sarfatti founded his company Arteluce, which brought lighting into the 20th century combining innovative ideas with groundbreaking design.

Throughout his celebrated career, Gino Sarfatti explored and was inspired by new product typologies, innovative materials, lighting technologies, and production techniques. His hybrid talent as a designer and engineer enabled him to created refined products in both aesthetics and function.
