Gino Sarfat­ti’s Model 2065 wall light, crafted for Astep, comprises two seam­lessly joined opaline methacry­late saucer-shaped diffusers deli­cately poised upon a grace­fully curved wall-mount tube struc­ture. This lamp is avail­able in two distinct versions: one designed for in-wall wiring, while the other is equipped with a cable and dimmer for conve­nient plug-in func­tion­al­ity into a stan­dard wall socket. Note­wor­thy is the utiliza­tion of Green Cast®, a patented 100% recy­cled and recy­clable PMMA (poly­methyl methacry­late) mate­r­ial proudly manu­fac­tured in Italy. This sustain­able choice aligns with envi­ron­men­tal conscious­ness and upholds the same aesthetic and func­tional qual­i­ties as the orig­i­nal methacry­late, ensur­ing both ethical and design integrity.
