GINO SARFATTI. IL DESIGN DELLA LUCE
BY AMEDEO GUIDOBONO CAVALCHINI, FRANCESCO LIBRIZZI
FOR TRIENNALE DESIGN MUSEUM
On the occasion of the hundredth anniversary of his birth, the great “Gino Sarfatti: Il design della luce” anthology was designed to investigate and look more closely at one of the great masters of Italian (and international) lighting. Under the curatorship of Marco Romanelli and Sandra Severi Sarfatti and set within the Triennale of Milan, the exhibition included about 300 original pieces designed by Sarfatti and coming from various private collections (including the collection of Clémence and Didier Krzentowski, the Galerie Kreo Paris), from the designer’s family and the Historical Flos Archives. The layout, designed by Amedeo Guidobono Cavalchini and Francesco Librizzi, focused on the maximization of the iconic and original features of each piece on display. To do this, the rooms of the Palazzo dell’Arte dedicated to the exhibition were marked by a series of rhythmic sections and flat areas, distributed in such a way as to highlight the specific expressive qualities of each lamp, framed by the white color of its own light. This resulted in an overall idea of exhibition space dominated at the same time by continuity and individual pieces. The coexistence of these two great conceptual images of modernity also reflects the presence in Sarfatti’s work of an eclectic vision and a constant search for classification and coding.
