or Call to Order

The Model 1095 floor lamp, designed by Gino Sarfatti for Astep, exudes a slender and grace­ful aesthetic, marked by intrigu­ing dispro­por­tions between its head and base. The design of the petite reflec­tive cup distinctly reflects Sarfat­ti’s explo­ration and cele­bra­tion of the inno­v­a­tive halogen light bulb, both from a func­tional and dimen­sional stand­point within the Model 1095. The lumi­naire, compris­ing a tubular aluminum stem, offered in three distinct heights and finished in a sophis­ti­cated slate gray, has under­gone a reissue where the base now conceals elec­tronic devices instead of a trans­former. Addi­tion­ally, the upgraded iter­a­tion features LED light­ing and incor­po­rates a patented liquid cooling system by Flos. Avail­able in three heights: 66.9″, 72.78″, and 78.7
