In 1939, Alessandro Sarfatti’s grandfather Gino founded Arteluce, ultimately bringing the idea of design to the lighting business. In 1978, Gino’s son Riccardo created Luceplan together with Alessandro’s mother Sandra Severi and the architect Paolo Rizzatto. Now, Alessandro is taking the next logical step with Astep, combining forward-thinking design with digital technology, all the while maintaining the utmost reverence for what has been.
