Giovanni Santoni (*1945) studied at the metal department of the State School of Art in Florence (L'Istituto statale d'arte di Firenze) and completed an internship at Bino Bini, a well known Italian sculptor and goldsmith. In 1972 Santoni established his own workshop in Tuscany, where he started to execute jewelry and furniture based on his own designs. This company, which was called C.S Arte from 1976 on, has been active ever since. All the pieces of C.S. Arte are executed to a very high standard and clearly show the craftmanship of their maker.

The rare and evocative torchère on offer is no exception to this rule. Both the base and shade of this floor light are executed in cast metal and - just like the stem - finished in polished brass. This elaborate technique and the organic shapes give the fixture a highly sculptural character, which clearly distinguishes itself from Industrial Production. Comes with original halogen bulb and has a sliding foot dimmer.

Overall beautiful vintage condition, some small scratches and wear (see pictures).
