Background information:
Marc Sadler (1946) was born in Austria, but he is a French national. He currently lives in Milan, where he works as a consultant for companies selling furniture, sporting equipment and lighting. Working with plastic is very important in all aspects of his career.

He graduated in 1968 from the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs - The School of Art and Design in Paris. In the early 1970s, he developed the first ski boot in thermoset plastic, produced by the Lotto company. This project brought him many projects with sports companies all over the world.

In the late 1990s, Marc Sadler started designing lamps. He later collaborated with the brand Foscarini. The most famous lamp he designed is the beautiful Twiggy lamp, which was designed in 2006. His floor lamp 'Mite' is so innovative, that it was awarded the Compasso d'Oro (the Golden Compass) in 2001.

Condition in accordance with age and use, such as a few signs of wear.
