Rare model 573 desk or table lamp designed by Gino Sarfatti and manufactured by Arteluce, Italy 1956. This very nice direct table lamp has a cast iron base, covered with the trademark finish in black crackle paint. The centre stems are made of chrome plated metal and are adjustable in different positions and angles. A solid aluminium ball in the centre is the adjusting mechanism which was also used in other models. The typical Sarfatti shade was used in different versions of his lamps and is a combination of anodized aluminium and has a green plexiglass diffuser ring which gives a nice light effect when lit. In this lamp Sarfatti created balance between direct light and decorative light. The green diffuser ring makes sure you don’t stare directly into the lamp and also gives the appearance that it is lit where in fact this is only the light bulb reflecting on the ring. The cable which exists at the end of the arm and goes into the centre stem, takes on a decorative as well as functional value. This lamp is perfect as a desk lamp for example due to its multiple adjusting functions. The lamp uses an E27 bulb up to 100 watts, can use an LED bulb as well and is dimmable. The lamp is in original condition with age related wear which is visible on the pictures. This adds character to the lamp and if wanted this could be restored.


This lamp is checked in our own atelier, cleaned and is suitable for use in the USA. For US usage we could change the plug, or you can get a converter if needed for a floor or table lamp with transformer in it. Feel free to inquire for options.
