Description

Since 1987, the Italian company Artemide has produced the famous Tolomeo lamp by designers Giancarlo Fassina and Michele de Lucchi. Tolomeo Mega Terra is a floor lamp with a large head that can be adjusted in all directions through a spring balance system.

With Tolomeo, Giancarlo Fassina and Michele de Lucchi succeeded in making a trend-setting and extremely popular desk lamp at the time, which can be found today on desks in countless architecture firms and agencies. The design was enlarged proportionally for the Mega Terra floor lamp. The Tolomeo Mega Terra received the red dot design award in 2003 for its qualities.

Through its subdivided body and spring balance system on the head, the Mega Terra floor lamp can be adjusted precisely to your needs. The base and adjustable arms of the Tolomeo Mega Terra floor lamp consist of glossy aluminium and the joints of polished aluminium.

The lampshade is also available in other sizes and with parchment or silk satin material.

The great finale in the truest sense of the word

4 of 5 stars 2019-05-13, , Artemide - Tolomeo, Mega Terra, black shade 42 cm
3 of 3 customers have found this review helpful.

Automatically translated from German

Let's get to the grand finale, the lampshade. The diameter of 42 cm can be taken from the product description, but ... wow, that thing is huge. Not just the umbrella, the whole Mega Terra itself. But well, Artemide certainly didn't choose the name Mega Terra by chance. A true monster - in a positive sense. The shade is again proportional to the size of the whole lamp. A small umbrella would look ridiculous. Functionally the shade convinces by its very soft and soft light. It does not produce a hard spot, but rather a diffuse light cone. Very pleasant, very practical, very enlightened. When it comes to price, the glider is in the same notch as the body and base, but let's put it another way: if you want to call the Mega Terra your own, you pay what it costs. One can wish for a cheaper price, but wishes are rarely respected in life.

Proud prize meets proud weight

4 of 5 stars 2019-05-13, , Artemide - Tolomeo, Mega Terra, base and bar, black
2 of 2 customers have found this review helpful.

Automatically translated from German

A full-grown floor lamp, no doubt about it. Let's hope it doesn't grow any more, because the base alone weighs about 12 kg. Don't get it wrong: the dimensions of the complete Tolomeo Mega Terra and the range of the swivel arm require a very solid base to tame the lamp and give it stability. In addition, the foot (in black) also looks grandiose. Only the joining of base and rod requires a little skill due to the weight and size of the components, at least when there is no helping hand at the side. Speaking of standing: once the pedestal and staff are standing, nothing can shake them anymore. Melancholy can then only arise in the price, because for approx. 340 € it remains with a pretty black stick, which is in an even prettier black base. It just doesn't glow.

Let there be light and shadow

4 of 5 stars 2019-05-13, , Artemide - Tolomeo, Mega Terra, Body with dimmer, black
2 of 2 customers have found this review helpful.

Automatically translated from German

The Tolomeo Mega Terra only begins to glow after the swivel arm and socket have been purchased and installed, or to put it another way: the body with dimmer. The assembly is easy, put the body into the rod, done. Screw the power cable into the socket, if available unscrew the shield and turn the bulb in. The illuminant of choice is the halogen lamp in an E27 socket. Depending on the location, a bulb with high luminosity may be required, but even a 77 Watt bulb with 1175 lumens is already too bright. Fortunately, there's a dimmer. Experience has shown that these things unfortunately start to buzz when you reduce the brightness. With the present specimen this phenomenon is still within limits, but it is definitely perceptible. Completely unsuitable however is this plastic part, which should embody on and off switches as well as dimmers. The thing does not fit at all to the overall appearance of the Mega Terra and looks simply cheap, shabby, scrapy. So there is something else to it, without discussion, good 320 € let us hope for more, for much more. A direct call to Artemide! That's not how it works! It's getting a little shady in the mind. Nevertheless, in favour of the positive overall appearance of the rest of the lamp, this small stain is probably accepted.

The Artemide - Tolomeo Mega base and stand is a great and thoughtful designer lamp for its price very thought through and nothing comparable finds. The stand is very massive and has a loose weight of 10kg ! Overall clear recommendation to buy.

unfortunately a little grey/silver

we decided to use the white umbrella because we have a lot of white in our home and thought it would fit better than cream. Unfortunately the umbrella is not really white in daylight but shines rather grey/silver through the Satain.

Parchment yes ... to the black frame no

4 of 5 stars 2019-05-13, , Artemide - Tolomeo, Mega Terra, parchment shade 36 cm
1 of 1 customers have found this review helpful.

Automatically translated from German

And it's parchment! In itself a nice idea, which provides for a very warm and cosy ambience. The parchment of course does not nestle as well to the frame as it does with the silk satin. The decisive point that speaks against the parchment, however, is its lack of joy in combining with the black frame. You can do it, but it doesn't seem like a unit. The black satin shade rounds off the concept of the Tolomeo Mega Terra better.

The stand is great and doesn't wobble. The lampshade can be navigated where you need the light and there is no cone of light, but the light is beautifully distributed.

We already have a few Artemide lamps and have long wished for the Mega Terra. Now we have finally "indulged" in them and are totally happy! Hopefully we will have many years of fun with the lamp. The stand is great and doesn't wobble. The lampshade can be navigated where you need the light and there is no cone of light, but the light is beautifully distributed.

You don't have to say much about the Tolomeo Mega Terra from Artemide - timeless, inconspicuous design and very high quality workmanship. Overall, the Mega Terra looks very elegant despite its size.

Design classics: Great light with satin lampshade

The Tolomeo Mega Terra by Artemide is a design classic, which blends into almost all furnishing styles due to its simple design. Different sizes and materials are available for the lampshades. I have chosen the umbrella with a diameter of 32cm, which fits well for our living room and despite the size of the frame does not look too small. Depending on taste, the larger screen diameter is also suitable for very large rooms.
