  • 30 years of Tolomeo

    Artemide is celebrating 30 years of the Tolomeo Lamp. Tolomeo, designed by Michele de Lucchi and Giancarlo Fassina, was launched in 1987 and the classic table lamp has since become an icon of modern design and changed the way we experience light. To celebrate, Tolomeo’s 30th anniversary, select models of the Tolomeo are available at a special price.

    I DESIGNED THE TOLOMEO IN 1986. PERHAPS I OUGHT TO SAY THAT I INVENTED IT, AS IN POINT OF FACT, THE IDEA FOR A NEW MECHANISM CAME BEFORE THE LAMP WAS CREATED.”
 -Michele de Lucchi

    Over 30 years the Tolomeo family of lamps has evolved to include table lamps, wall scones, suspension lamps, floor models and outdoor floor and suspension models. Each edition includes a wide variety of options, each providing flexible light to address the needs of all application fields.

    The Tolomeo lamp was born from de Lucchi’s desire to have a lamp he personally designed on his desk that would work over his drawing board, where he spent many hours a day. The design was inspired by the movement of rods used to support and maneuver fishing nets. The lamp is held together by tension produced by the string in the arm.  The floating arm of lamp stays firm when moved in position with only one hand.

     

    artemide-tolomeo-classic-wall-1 The Artemide Tolomeo Classic is available in a floor model, a wall scone, a variety of table options and also with LED technology.

     

    Tolomeo was first awarded the Compasso d’Oro in 1989, and continues to be honoured with design awards today. Most recently the Tolomeo Outdoor Lampione series received the Wallpaper Design Award in 2017 for Best Outdoor Lighting.

    There is a Tolomeo for every space. It represents technology, creativity and humanism, three of the core elements at the heart of Artemide.
