Since 1939 Gino Sarfatti worked in the lighting sector and set up a company called Arteluce. Arteluce soon became a national and international reference point for the modern architecture movement in lighting. Sarfatti produced over 400 luminaires and never stopped researching typology, materials and technologies. He became one of the best Italian lighting designers and won numerous awards, including the Compasso d'Oro in 1954 and 1955 and the Honorary Diploma of the Milan Triennale. Gino Sarfatti died at Gravedona in 1984, but Flos brought his work back to light with 'Re-Lighting' Sarfatti collection. Flos adapted the lamps to the modern times and provided them with the new LED technology.
