Gino Sarfatti

Gino Sarfatti was born in Venice in 1912 to a wealthy family with whom he soon afterwards moved to Genoa and then enrolled in the faculty of Aereonaval Engineering without being able to complete his studies because of the sanctions imposed on Italy by the League of Nations with the "detention of ships" in 1935. He thus moved to Milan, where he founded Arteluce in 1939 with some members of the Milanese company and soon became its general manager. The company produced lighting fixtures and furniture components. In 1943 with the bombing of Milan, the family was forced to flee to Switzerland, while Arteluce remained active, within the allowed limits, with Vittoriano Viganò in charge. Upon the artist's return to Italy, he founded ArCon "Arredamento Contemporaneo" in Rome in 1950, which sells brands of excellence in the design world. In 1954 he won the Compasso d'Oro with model 559, while models 1063 and 1065 of his lamps won the "Gran Prix" at the Milan Triennale. At the end of 1973 Sarfatti decided to sell Arteluce to Flos, thus ending his working career.
