The Tolomeo Basculante from Artemide is part of the famous Tolomeo collection by the Italian designer Michele de Lucchi and Giancarlo Fassina. This relation is especially seen in the frame of the lamp: The unmistakable, adjustable arm out of shiny 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, which is the reason why the Tolomeo Basculante isn’t only suitable as desk lamp, but also as decorative background illumination in the living room or as reading light on the bedside table. The slightly translucent shade out of satin or parchment paper spreads moody, diffuse light.
The Tolomeo Basculante even becomes a wall lamp with the according wall brackets, offering many advantages with its flexible arms.
This makes the Tolomeo Basculante Lettura desk-table lamp from Artemide a real designer’s piece, which expands the Tolomeo series with another interesting model.
