2097 Suspension Lamp

by gino sarfatti, from flos

2097 suspension lamp

2097 suspension lamp

Design Gino Sarfatti, 1958
Steel tube body, steel support arms
Made in Italy by Flos

A dramatic fixture created by simplistic design producing modernist elegance. Since 1958, this iconic Gino Sarfatti design has served as an ultra-modern representation of the traditional mid-century chandelier. Every detail of this state-of-the-art ceiling light is exceptional, from the finish of its main steel structure to the way each bulb is fitted with its own horizontal arm and the graceful wiring meanders down the stem. The 2097 by Gino Sarfatti holds 18, 30 or 50 incandescent bulbs, emitting indirect light. It features a ceiling fitting and includes a suspension cable.

During his work in the lighting sector, Gino Sarfatti set up Arteluce, which became an international reference point for the modern architectural lighting movement and also a meeting place and forum for many of the leading Italian designers of the 50's and 60's. He designed and produced over four hundred luminaries and conducted extensive research into the innovation and design aspects of lighting.

gino sarfatti

During his thirty years of activity, Gino Sarfatti designed and produced over 400 luminaires and carried out non-stop research into innovation, typology, materials, production technologies, light sources, technical lighting effects and design aspects.
The furniture manufacturers and entrepreneurs Dino Gavina and Cesare Cassina founded Flos which became one of the leading Italian light manufacturers in the second half of the 20th century. Its origins lay in the energy of Arturo Eisenkeil who, in 1959, was seeking to find applications for a new, plastic-based material that he was importing to Italy from the United States. Called cocoon™, it was a spray-on plastic coating that Gavina and Cassina recognized as having potential for lighting design. From the outset, Flos established its reputation through its innovative lighting designs from Achille Castiglioni. The collaboration with Achille Castiglioni continued through the '90s, and in 1992 he introduced the "family of products" concept to the market with the Brera series. At the same time, Flos continued to scout for emerging talent at an international level. The first Philippe Starck lamp was produced in 1998, followed by the Miss Sissi lamp, Romeo Moon, and Archimoon series.
