07/12/2016 - Elegance and lightness are recurrent themes the work of Gino Sarfatti, and Model 2065 is no exception.

In 1949 Gino Sarfatti received the first ever samples of methacrylate, a new polymer plastic and he immediately saw the potential of the material and created the light and delicate Model 2065. Since then the suspension has been presented with different compositions and now Astep introduces Model 2065 Black.

“At the time we knew nothing except that it could be lit. So I took a few colors and put a light bulb inside, that was all.”

Model 2065 Black consists of two joined methacrylate saucers, the upper saucers has a black soft touch coating, thereby leaving the lower opalescent diffuser as the only light source, creating an intimate light space and providing a graphic expression. Suspended from the ceiling with a black painted aluminium canopy.

Model 2065 consists of a diffuser made of two joined opalescent methacrylate saucers, suspended from the ceiling with a black painted aluminium canopy. The simplicity of the design and lightness of the materials makes for a perceptively weightless luminaire.

The model has been featured in a number of significant interior projects by Italian architects such as Vito Latis and Vittoriano Viganò, and became a widely popular model within the Arteluce Collection.Model 2065. Timeless design
