Michele de Lucchi

Born in Ferrara, Michele de Lucchi studied in Padua and in Florence, Italy, where he graduated in architecture in 1975. After completing his studies architecture, his friendship with Ettore Sottsass and Alessandro Mendini took him to Milan at the end of the Seventies, where he became one of the main activists in the provocative designer group Memphis. His approach to the creation of new styles in design helped to play an important role in the Memphis movement, but by the late 1980's, de Lucchi had moved on to more traditional designs. After working with Artemide to develop some of their lasting bestsellers, de Lucchi created his Produzione Privata label, which creates small series of his designs featuring exquisite craftsmanship.

This is the perfect solution for bedside reading lamps. The size is ideal (10"), the shade (paper) creates a warm light, and the adjustability is perfect for general or task light next to the bed. Quaility is what you would expect from the Tolomeo line and the service from Ylighting was outstanding as usual.

Beautiful light.

I'm a big fan of the Tolomeo wall spot lights and clip-on spots, but for a special location in an attic renovation I chose this softer, more feminine sconce. The fabric shade in natural linen creates warm glowing light from a distance, but still makes an excellent light source for reading or other work. And I really appreciate the way the shade angle can be adjusted. Why can't all lighting be made by Artemide?

Very nice light

We bought this for a wall mount/sconce placed high on the wall, not next to the bed as it is normally used for. It looks great and the natural color shade gives the room a nice, warm colour.

We love the light and made a great decision.

I love the clean, contemporary design of this light and I'm thrilled with it!

This product is timeless in it's design. It is clean, elegant, contemporary and highly functional. We are so pleased with the light and look forward to purchasing more Tolomeo products.

Great Design, Great Quality

I love the simple and pure design. The shade (satin grey) adds to the classyness of the fixture. Great buy!

Handsome, well-made bedside sconce

The modern design is refined enough to fit easily in decor ranging from mid-century modern to contemporary. Difficult to find hardwired, wall-mounted sconces with on/off button like this model. Grey shade casts nice light. Bit expensive, but it also looks and feels expensive in person.

By:Kyle W. , Homeowner (New York City)

The fixture looks great but it only pivots up and down. My clients were disappointed that it does not rotate so you can direct the light at any direction, just not up and down. We have mounted these on the wall above a bed for reading.

Functional and Clean Looking

Beauty is in the simplicity of its design. Quality construction.

Clean lines and elegant wall sconces

Sturdy construction yet appear delicate. Very satisfied with this purchase though wish the sconces pivoted left to right as well as up and down. Would have liked color of shade to be more of a true white vs. the parchment color. Otherwise, they look lovely framing our new headboard in our bedroom.

Love these reading lights!

These are great in any modern (or even traditional) style home. Very simple and elegant in design, they are also very good quality lamps and cast a lovely light. The only thing I wish was that they could also tilt side to side so I could better direct the light. But overall these are very nice, well made lights that should last a lifetime. I love the linen shade!

Poor quality for big name.

I just returned these lights as I was seduced by the clean lines and simplicity of the design. Upon opening the box, picking up and handling this light I was amazed at how flimsy and cheaply made this fixture actually is. It has a painted on metal finish on essentially cheap plastic. I was very surprised at a fixture with the name Artemide behind getting away with such a cheaply crafted product. Now I know why Ikea does so well but at least you know what your getting in craftsmanship quality for the price. This light is another victim of the MacCheepo world we live in. Seems a bit like how are cars are manufactured these days. Where did the quality and craftsmanship go? Oh yeah did I mention the 30% restocking fee that Artemide has?

Beautiful lamp shipped ahead of schedule.

This is a classic lamp that works perfectly in our walk-in closet. The lamp was out of stock everywhere and Y-Lighting got the light to us ahead of schedule.

A perfect fit...

... for our master bedroom. The lights look very classy and modern. The gray shade is a light silvery color and tones beautifully with the pewter and charcoal color scheme. Delivery from ylighting was very fast, as usual, and installation easy.

It looks beautiful in the space.

Nice blend

I bought 2 of this piece because I thought it was a nice blend of modern design and functionality, with a nod to the old fashioned bedroom wall sconces from my former 1920s new England colonial. They aren't up yet, but the quality so far evident has me confident that they'll be more than satisfactory.

Clean modern well-made wall light

Lovely light, well-made, in stock (thank you Y Lighting!). I would definitely recommend this again to another client. As noted in other reviews, the light only moves up and down, not side to side, which is a bummer. Would be so much more useful if it pivoted in all directions. However if you're aware of that issue and not bothered by it, this is a great bedside wall light.

As great as expected from Artemide

We have used several different styles of the Tolomeo light and have been pleased with all of them. Quality as good as it gets.
YLighting service as good as the quality of the Tolomeo.

Beautiful sconces!

Great wall lamps to frame bed!

Got a set of these Tolomeo 10 wall shades for bedside lighting. 10" size is perfect, was concerned that 7" would be too small and 12" would be too large. Great way to handle bedside lighting while leaving room on nightstands.

By:Tom C. , Homeowner (Los Angeles, CA)

Beautiful design, but too big for the space

I ordered these two wall shades for my guest bedroom, but the 10" was too big on either side of the bed. It is a beautiful design though. Also, the satin grey shade was too shiny and silvery. Thinking about buying the 7".

Classic, clean lines, and highly functional.

This is a great lamp -- strong modernist lines, and yet gives sufficient warm light. Lots of options for how to use it, but make sure your space is large enough to really accommodate it --it's quite large, and could dominate a space if you're not careful!

Love this product!!

I absolutely love the tolomeo wall light ... but not as much as I love the service from Ylighting! They were so helpful and everything arrived when they said it would ... can't say the same for some of the other sites out there.

Great addition to a room

Used two of these w/gray fiber shade to add a modern touch to a somewhat dated bathroom. They look great and span the gap between contemporary and modern.
