Since 1987 the Italian lamp manufacturer Artemide produces the Tolomeo-Lamp of the designers Giancarlo Fassina and Michele de Lucchi. The design duo made a very successful design with the Tolomeo of a table lamp, which can be found today on the tables of uncountable architecture offices and agencys.
The very flexible base, the simple aluminium optic and the hat-formed shade are the signs of the Tolomeo, whos simple shape inspires other manufacturers and designers for similar lamps. The length of the cable ensures huge flexibility with its 2 meters.
Because of the extreme flexibility of the pendant and the rotatable shade is it easy to get the light of the Tolomeo everywhere on your table. The Tolomeo Lamp is also available in the coulors white and black, and for energy-efficient lamps (Socket: GX24q) and halogen bulbs (Socket: E27) besides the here normal "light bulb versions" in alu-silver.Also in our blog:
