Since 1987 the Italian company Artemide produces the well known Tolomeo lamps from the designers Giancarlo Fassina and Michele de Lucchi. Tolomeo Mega Terra is a floor lamp whose large lamp head can be adjusted to all directions because of counterbalancing springs.
Giancarlo Fassina and Michele de Lucchi reached a trend-setting and extremely successful design of a desk lamp in that time, which is placed on numerous architects offices and agencies today, with Tolomeo. The design was proportionally enlarged for Mega Terra. For its qualities, the Tolomeo Mega Terra got the red dot design award in the year 2003.
Through the subdivided lamp body and the counterbalancing spring-system at the lamps head, the Mega Terra floor lamp-light can exactly be adjusted according to your demands. The base and the adaptable arms of the Tolomeo Mega Terra floor lamp consist of glossy aluminium, the joints of polished aluminium.
The lamp shade is also available in further sizes and out of parchment or silk satin.Also in our blog:
