Table Lamp GOLDMAN designed by Ron Gilad
“Banker’s lamps are one of the earliest kinds of electric lamps. They were made as early as the 1800s. Typically produced of a solid brass base and a green glass shade and functioned as accent or task lighting. Originally they were used by bankers, who worked long hours, looking at small numbers. They needed extra light on their desk to make their job a little easier. “Goldman”, named after an investment banking firm, designed as a step in the evolution of this traditional lamp, Injected with high technology and slick lines.” Ron Gilad
About Gino Sarfatti: starting from the premise that his designs were conceived with the components and resources at his disposal -each time adopting the latest light sources, from fluorescent tubes to the Cornalux bulb and the first halogens-, re-proposing his models in updated versions necessarily involved a consideration of the resources available today. Detracting nothing from the integrity of the lamps’ original, incredibly contemporary forms, it was essential to adopt cutting-edge LED technology, which had to be introduced with the utmost sophistication yet without being invasive. Through a long and complex endeavour, today a first set of lamps designed by Gino Sarfatti –models 548, 1063, 1095, 2129 and 607- finally make their return to light up our homes and, in doing so, tell us something about him.
