A timeless masterpiece of lightness and elegance, Model 2065 is the result of Gino Sarfatti’s desire to experiment with materials. Gino Sarfatti came across methacrylate samples between 1949 and 1950. This convinced him to create a suspension lamp with this plastic polymer which is much lighter and more resistant than glass. The 2021 version adds to these features in terms of sustainability: the diffusers are made of Green Cast®, a 100% recycled and recyclable PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate) — patented and made in Italy — that has exactly the same aesthetic and functional quality of original methacrylate.
Model 2065 consists of a diffuser made up of two opalescent plates joined and suspended from the ceiling with a black painted aluminum rosette. A simple design played on the elliptical shape and the lightness of the materials which, together, seem to give life to a weightless creation. The lamp was relaunched by Astep in 2016 also in a second black version, in which the upper plate is finished with a soft-touch coating with a strong graphic expression. Five E12 LED bulbs provide illumination in all versions of the lamp.
