« There are always different ways to reach the goal. But I've never been interested in the shape, except for the shape of the bulb lamp from which I have to create a termination, a support. »
- Gino Sarfatti
This piece from 1954 is probably one of the most radical of the designer. Sarfatti reduces the floor lamp to its most essential form, in a way that might recall Dan Flavin’s pioneering introduction of fluorescent light into the art world in the early 1960s, which also focused on the minimalist use of light as a medium in itself.
