Astep Model 238 Wall lamp.
The Model 238 wall lamp from the lighting brand Astep is composed of a round opal glass diffuser with a steel ring structure. You can place the glass ball on the ring in both directions and thus change the appearance and light intensity of the lamp. The simplistic Model 238 will find its place in many types of spaces, be it a living room, hall, kitchen or bedroom.
The lamp is part of the Le Sfere collection, designed by the legendary Italian lighting designer Gino Sarfatti in 1959. Sarfatti sought inspiration for his work from natural light and the sky, and the lamps of the Le Sfere collection were influenced by the soft light and round shape of the moon. The collection consists of a diverse range of different luminaires that all have two things in common: white light diffused through opal glass and a modern, graphic touch to the metal rings.
Le Sfere lamps are still made in Italy and are equally well suited for private and public spaces.

About the designer:
The Italian designer Gino Sarfatti (1912-1985) was a master of lighting design and founder of the lighting brand Arteluce. Sarfatti was born in Venice and moved to Genoa to study aeronautical engineering until he had to interrupt his studies due to the war in the late 1930s.
Sarfatti founded Arteluce in Milan in 1939. In 1943 he and his family had to flee from Italy to Switzerland, but after the war they returned to Milan to reorganize the production of Arteluce.
The 1950s were a golden age for Arteluce: in 1954, two of Sarfatti's lamps were awarded the Grand Prix at the Milan Triennale and in the following two years his designs received the Compasso d'Oro prize. In 1973 Sarfatti sold Arteluce to the Italian lighting manufacturer Flos, which continues the production of Sarfatti's design classics.
