Design by Alberto Meda, Riccardo Sarfatti, Paolo Rizzatto, 1992.
Metropoli, "revolutionary within". Simple, almost elementary. Elegant, positively impeccable. This technical step forward can also be seen in the ease of assembly and maintenance of this lamp. The wide rear hole allows rapid electrical connection during installation and convenient inspection of the system during operation. The diffuser closure system, of the "watch-case" type, facilitates bulb replacement and cleaning of the reflectors. This die-cast aluminum lamp with a diffuser made of prismatic glass or opal polycarbonate (available only for fluorescent version), provides a pleasant continuity of form between the interior and exterior of constructions.

He works as a freelancer in the field of architecture, design and interior design and continues to develop his experience as interior lighting designer.

Luceplan was founded in 1978 by Italian architects Riccardo Sarfatti, Sandra Severi, and Paolo Rizzatto to custom design lighting fixtures for the commercial and industrial sectors in Europe.

Merging new design and technological solutions with enduring style, quality, function, and efficiency, Luceplan products are extremely popular in Europe and have been available in the U.S. since 1978.
Hard to put back together
The light was very hard to put back together once you have to take all of it apart to install it to the junction box. Nice chrome look and we got 2 for the bathroom which lights up the whole room nicely. Even on a dimmer switch they work very good.

The Metropoli light - looks different than the image online.
The image looks different than the actual fixture. Also, the housing was a little confusing and not intuitive to put together. Not totally crazy about this one. Probably would look better in a grouping or row instead of just one fixture, which is what I spec'd.
