Very rare pair of Gino Sarfatti outdoor lights model 1102 for Arteluce from 1971.
Sold and priced individually.
This pair of large lamps with a 72″ height is in astonishingly well preserved condition.
Originally conceived and produced by Arteluce for outdoor use, most of these lights weren’t saved over the last decades and basically rotted in the garden.
Nowadays we would recommend to give them a new home indoors. They cast a beautiful light and are great for accentuating any space – especially as a pair.
Gino Sarfatti used a simple steel mesh to form a tube that was then powder-coated. They came in black, white and green. The hand blown opal glass shades are perfectly fitting the structure.
The overall condition is good, it shows lacquer losses in some parts, minor deformations of the mesh, the glass shows no cracks or chips.
Otherwise in good original and working condition.
We have an identical pair available, they will sell individually.
