Alfi luminaires are conceived for optimum adaptability. Its open frame is designed to effortlessly create different configurations and to seamlessly integrate geometry and disorder achieving the visual and functional balance required by any environment. In addition to the pendant and floor lamp compositions, there are also a number of coordinating wall sconce options.
