The Tolomeo Basculante Lettura floor lamp from Artemide is obviously part of the famous Tolomeo collection designed by the Italians Michele de Lucchi and Giancarlo Fassina: The unmistakable, adjustable arm out of polished aluminium is typical for the Tolomeo family.
The lampshade of different, noble materials – depending on the selection of the customer – and the base out of polished aluminium complete the image of the Basculante: The shade looks less technical and cold than the “classic” Tolomeo lamp.
The biggest part of the light of the Tolomeo floor lamp shines downwards. But the light can still be adjusted regarding its height and direction because of the flexible arm. That’s the reason why the Tolomeo Basculante Lettura also serves as reading lamp. The slightly translucent shade out of satin or parchment paper lets a little light shine through it, making it shimmer softly.
This makes the Artemide Tolomeo Basculante Lettura floor lamp a real designer’s piece which enriches the Tolomeo collection with another interesting model.
