â€¨â€¨Artemideâ€™s light icon gets a new family member
September 22nd, 2009
The iconic ‘Tolomeo’ lamp how now been supersized. Designed by Michele De Lucchi and Giancarlo Fassina in 1986 for Italian lighting company Artemide, the lamp is based on the principles of tension and movement, and features a cantilevered system that is spring balanced, meaning it can be adjusted to any angle.
Immediately successful, the original ‘Tolomeo’ won the Compasso D’Oro in 1989 and has since been incredibly popular. Now, for the first time, the growing ‘Tolomeo’ family includes a giant version, scaled up 4:1 from the desk lamp model.
Made with the same aluminium familiar throughout the series, the ‘Tolomeo XXL’ features a concrete base and is available in indoor or outdoor options. Now, one of the world’s most recognisable lamps is available in the full spectrum of sizes and applications.
