Born in Venice in 1912, Gino Sarfatti studied aeronaval engineering before founding Arteluce, a firm that became synonymous with modern architectural lighting. He designed and produced over 400 fixtures, introducing innovative typology, materials, production techniques, and light sources, including the use of halogen bulbs as early as 1971. His designs have been included in six of the Museum’s exhibitions, from The Modern Movement in Italy: Architecture and Design (1954) to Shaping Modernity 1880-1980 (2013).
