Tolomeo Tavolo desk lamp - the design classic par excellence among table lamps

The Italian lamp manufacturer Artemide has been producing the Tolomeo lamp by designers Giancarlo Fassina and Michele de Lucchi since 1987. With Tolomeo, the design duo succeeded in creating a trend-setting and extremely successful design of a desk lamp that can be found on the tables of countless architectural offices and agencies.

Sophisticated cable system for high stability.

The highly movable frame, the simple aluminum look and the hat-shaped shade are the hallmarks of the Tolomeo, whose simple and archetypal shape has served many manufacturers and designers to inspire similar lights. The length of the cable ensures the necessary flexibility with a generous 2 meters.

Flexibly adjustable arms

Due to the enormous flexibility of the swivel arm and the rotating lampshade, the direct light of the Tolomeo can be optimally aligned on the desk. In addition to the version offered here in aluminum silver, the Tolomeo lamp is also available in the colors white and black.

An umbrella as an icon

An umbrella as an icon

The lamp head of the Artemide Tolomeo is unmistakable. The hat-shaped umbrella is the hallmark of the series. Not only the desk lamp, but also every other Tolomeo has the characteristic lampshade.
