International lighting brand based in Denmark with deep roots in the Italian historical scene. A family business started in the 1930s by Gino Sarfatti, continued with his son Riccardo and now in its third generation with Alessandro. In 1939 Gino Sarfatti took the first step by founding Arteluce, a pioneer company in the use of design in the lighting sector. In 1978 Riccardo Sarfatti with his wife Sandra Severi and the architect Paolo Rizzatto created Luceplan, a company that combines design with technological research. Alessandro Sarfatti founded Astep in 2014 and enhances the two pillars, design and technology, adding a third: sustainability. Astep's focus is to give new light to the masterpieces of the great Italian design masters and at the same time create and develop new projects with cutting-edge technologies and in a green key, a symbolic bridge between past and future.
