Impressive wall lamp model 169/4 designed by Gino Sarfatti and manufactured by Arteluce, Italy 1952. This large sized wall lamp comes from a series of wall lamps designed by Gino Sarfatti in 1952, this is the model with 4 arms is an impressive masterpiece. The large size and adjusting features make this lamp very interesting. The arms are adjustable from the position opposite of each other and also turn, so you can create a light sculpture as you want or like it. This is a versatile piece due to its functionality and adjustable features. The lamp is made of chrome plated metal and very dark grey ebonized detailed centre part and wall plate. The lamp is in fully original condition, it was bought in the Netherlands from the first owner who bought it at the end of the 1950s. It has 3 off white painted shaded and 1 black one, seems a bit off but also makes the lamp more interesting if you ask me. Only the black shade has a mark which we left as is as we wanted to keep the lamp in fully original condition. Lamp uses 4x E27 bulb up to 40 watt each and can also be dimmed and used with LED.


Born in Venice in 1912, Gino Sarfatti studied aero-naval engineering at the University of Genoa. In 1939, he launched the Arteluce company, a modern lighting design firm that quickly established itself as a successful international brand, as well as a meeting place for many of the leading Italian designers of the time.
