The Sofisticato collection owes its raw, timeless beauty to the minimalist design and the frequent use of blue steel. Designed by Koen van Guijze for Serax, the Sofisticato collection of timeless lighting makes an understated statement. Or as Koen Van Guijze describes it: “A straightforward material, fashioned by human hands, not spat out by a machine.” Every single part is manually milled, turned, sawn, drilled, and welded by craftsmen. Then the steel is heated and carefully polished by hand. This procedure makes the steel rust-resistant, in addition to giving it its characteristic blue glow.
