The VV Cinquanta lighting collection designed by Italian architect Vittoriano Viganó in 1951 during his time as Art Director for Arteluce embodies elegance and versatility.

The Twin model is an elegant two-armed wall light. Mounted on a brass bracket, the two brass arms reach out in opposite directions. The wide signature reflectors can be angled and rotated to provide both indirect and direct lighting simultaneously. 

A sculptural wall lamp with multiple lighting compositions.

The VV Cinquanta reflector is made of spun aluminium, available in original Vittoriano Viganò colours. 

Vittoriano Viganò was born in Milan in 1919. Son of the painter and engraver Vico Viganò, he graduated in Architecture at the Polytechnic School of Milan in 1944.
A main figure of the architectural debate in the post war period and an original interpreter of European Rationalism, he was unanimously considered by critics the most important Italian exponent of the "Brutalism" current.
A multidisciplinary talent, a tenured professor during all his life for the Milan Faculty, Vittoriano worked at various scales: from industrial design to architecture, from interior design to urban and landscape planning.
In continuity with the Milanese cultural tradition, Viganò kept opened eyes onto all emerging innovative European and International architectural experiences, which led him to become the Italian correspondent for L'architecture d'Aujourd'hui , the renowned journal directed by artist Andrè Bloc in the early '50's, and then for Aujourd'hui.
In the same period he took part in several Triennale exhibitions and designed several art galleries in via Brera in Milan.
Vittoriano was Art Director of Arteluce, the company founded by Gino Sarfatti, for some years and for Arteluce he designed numerous luminaires as well as the flagship store in via della Spiga in Milan.
In 1991 the San Luca Academy awarded him the Italian Republic President Prize for Architecture.
In 1994 Milan Triennale re-edited and exhibited some of his furniture for the great retrospective on the origins of Italian industrial design; some of those were selected for the Triennale's permanent collection.
His work was exhibited worldwide and regularly published.
Vittoriano Viganò died in Milan in 1996.

Astep creates and curates meaningful design objects

Honouring the vivid tradition and evolution of Italian design, Astep not only creates new designs but also brings back to life timeless works that were born from a forward-thinking attitude and maintain the capacity to affect and enlighten our lives today.

A family affair

Founder Alessandro Sarfatti explains: "Like all good Italian tales, mine is also a family affair and started a long time ago.
In 1939, my grandfather Gino Sarfatti founded Arteluce, a company that for the first time introduced design to the lighting business. In 1978, my father Riccardo went a step further. When creating Luceplan with my mother Sandra Severy and architect Paolo Rizzatto, he linked design with technology and envisaged a new business model that became synonymous with the 'Made in Italy' quality and innovation: working with specialized, talented and handpicked industrial craftsmen. Both Arteluce and Luceplan created one icon after another, luminaires of enduring beauty and embedding the meaning of evolution.
At Astep, we present a careful selection of works from the great minds of the past in combination with new inventions from the great minds of the present. A collection of objects, fluid in time, that carry on the heritage and story of my family."
