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. From interiors to porticoes or gardens, Metropoli can create a pleasant continuity between the interior and exterior of an architecture. This die-cast aluminum lamp with a diffuser made of opal polycarbonate (available only for fluorescent version), provides a pleasant continuity of form between the interior and exterior of constructions.

Born in Lenno Tremezzina in the province of Como in 1945, he graduated in mechanical engineering at the Milan Polytechnic in 1969. After being the technical director of Kartell in the seventies, he dedicated himself to design, applying his experience in polyurethane resins and new materials in general. In this period he won two Compasso d'Oro awards.
Riccardo Sarfatti, born April 3rd, 1940 in Milan, was an Italian architect, entrepreneur and politician. He graduated in architecture from Politecnico di Milano in 1965, and was an assistant professor of Urban Planning, Ordinary of the same Polytechnic Institute and professor for the course of History of Architecture in Venice and the Faculty of Architecture in Milan.

Paolo Rizzatto was born in 1941 in Milan. He took his degree in Architecture in I965 at the Milan Polytechnic. He works as a freelancer in the field of architecture, design and interior design and continues to develop his experience as interior lighting designer. In 1978, Paolo Rizzatto founded Luceplan together with Riccardo Sarfatti. He has designed for Arteluce, Artemide, Luceplan, Alias, Cassina, Nemo, Molteni, Knoll, Kartell, Philips, Montina, Thonet and Guzzini.
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. But with designs that also appealed to the residential market, Luceplan has created products with this market in mind since 1981. 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.
Bottom line, looks great!
I purchased this light for outdoor use above my garage door area to replace the ordinary lantern type that was there. It was easy to install, the build quality is excellent and bottom line, looks great. A nice contemporary upgrade from what I had. I bought the electronic compact fluorescent version and even though it's 2x26 watts, it is very bright. In fact, this size is probably just a bit too bright for my application however I live in the country so it really lights up the area nicely, but if you have neighbors nearby, others may want to consider a smaller version. Ylighting's staff was very helpful in choosing the right version. Definitely recommended.
