"The Tolomeo family is expanded to include a new outdoor product. The light source is enclosed in a diffusing cap fitted inside a transparent IP65 plastic unit that recalls old lampposts, in use when light was produced from oil. The structural elements of Tolomeo were strengthened and consolidated to resist to the increased stress. The family is also enriched with a shade to adapt the lamp for use on terraces or in domestic outdoor locations." - Michele De Lucchi.

The iconic lamp comes in the floor, suspension, and hook version, with materials and finishes ideal for outdoor use. The family is now a more comprehensive system, capable to address indoor and outdoor, public and private needs.

Tolomeo Mega Outdoor is produced in the larger size (diffuser diameter: 50 cm) to adjust to the perceptive proportions of broader and open spaces. The diffuser is coated with the Thuia fabric by Paola Lenti, a durable and washable plastic material that looks like natural jute.

Tolomeo Mega Outdoor is designed for use without a diffuser, with the exposed opal glass diffusing unit covering the source and ensuring IP protection.

Giancarlo Fassina

Giancarlo Fassina

Italy, 1935

Giancarlo Fassina was born in Milan, Italy. He obtained a degree in architecture at the Politecnico University in Milan. He has worked on several projects involving industrial design and has created lighting for Artemide and other companies.

He received a Compasso D'oro award for his Tolomeo Series of lamps that he designed together with Michelle de Lucchi.

His early industrial design experience began with a company manufacturing calculating machines and a household appliance manufacturer. In 1970 Fassina joined the Italian lighting company Artemide, helping with both the restructuring of the technical design sector and organizing the internal department of product models and development. Throughout the 1980s, he designed large-scale lighting systems for exhibits and buildings across Italy.

Michele De Lucchi

Michele De Lucchi

Italy, 1951

Michele De Lucchi studied architecture in Padua and Florence. In 1973 he joined forces with other designers and architects to form Cavart, a radical design group that put on “happenings” and held seminars in Padua. In 1978 De Lucchi moved to Milan, where he worked for Kartell in their proprietary studio, Centrokappa. There he met Ettore Sottsass, and joined the Studio Alchimia designers.

In 1980 Michele De Lucchi joined the Memphis group, designing a sofa and the First Chair in 1983. In the late 1980s Michele De Lucchi turned to lighting design. Tolomeo, a stringently, functional aluminum task lamp, designed in collaboration with Giancarlo Fassina, for Artemide in 1987, became an international bestseller. In 2003 the Castore Lamp series was launched. They consisted of milky white, hand blown Murano glass, with no perceptible transition between foot and lampshade.
