The Minimalist wall lamp model 31B, designed by the acclaimed Gino Sarfatti and manufactured by Arteluce in Italy in 1950, epitomizes the elegance and functionality of mid-century modern lighting design. Sarfatti, a pioneer in lighting design, is celebrated for his innovative approach and the model 31B is a stellar example of his work. This wall lamp features a sleek tubular aluminum shade, embodying the minimalist aesthetic that Sarfatti is known for. The shade’s clean lines and understated elegance allow it to blend seamlessly into various interior settings, while its aluminum construction ensures durability and a sophisticated, modern look.


The lamp is equipped with a chrome-plated adjustable wall arm, providing both a polished finish and practical functionality. This arm allows the lamp to rotate a full 360 degrees and be fully adjusted, offering versatile positioning to suit any lighting need. Whether used for reading, accent lighting, or ambiance, the lamp provides a beautiful light effect when illuminated, enhancing the atmosphere of any room. Though the lamp is unmarked, it unmistakably bears the hallmark quality of Arteluce, a company renowned for its high standards and meticulous craftsmanship. The attention to detail and superior construction are evident in every aspect of the lamp’s design.
