Design by Michele De Lucchi, Giancarlo Fassina.
In 1989, when the Tolomeo table/task was given the Compasso d'Oro award for Italian industrial design it was credited with having achieved the perfect marriage between design and engineering that works together in total "sync" to materialize an idea and create the perfect object for industrial production.
Since then, the Tolomeo's award-winning design, engineering and performance features have been further refined in a complete series of models for table, floor, wall, track and suspension application.

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.See other lights/products from Michele de Lucchi

beautyful design meets great functionality
It a small piece of art. Beautyfully designed and so functional.
By:Anna P. , Architect (Santa Monica, CA)
Functional light, mostly where you want it
This is a really nice lamp, but the combination of the heavy cord and clip design doesn't give you all the versatility you might think. It's a classic design, and really attractive piece, but we haven't found it to be especially flexible in use. This would be a great light if you have the right application for it. See our review of the Tolomeo Wall Lights for more on this series.

Great little light .
After searching several lighting stores I was happy to find this small spot light. This clip on light is a clean, timeless design that fits in with most decor. Seems to be built to last.

I love the color, the design, as well as it's functionality. My client's daughter uses them on both levels of her bunk bed.
I also own the Tolomeo Mini for my own daughter's desk. It is very cute and very easy to use even for a seven year old.

Great but depends on use.
Great light, but clip did not work for the way I intended to use it. I wanted to clip it on to my headboard, but the clip was not big or strong enough to hold.

High quality, high utility
This light is exactly what I needed: compact without being dainty or flimsy, easily repositionable, and with a nice long cord. Handles a nice bright bulb too, so my entire worksurface is illuminated. The fact that it is Tolomeo and therefore coordinates with other lamps in my home is just a bonus.

perfect on gallery ledge
great reading light. perfect size and design

If NASA made a clip light, it wouldn't be half as good as this one.
Tolomeo Clip Spot Light is a gorgeous piece of engineering. It articulates in any dimension and throws a wonderful, controllable arc of light. It's worth every penny even though it's darn expensive. Buy two, I dare you.

stopped working after 2 years
Worked great for two years then nothing, tried different outlets and multiple bulbs. would expect it to last much longer for the price.
By:Rocco , Designer (philadelphia)
Not as impressed as I had hoped
The turnaround for delivery of this product was pretty long, about 4-6 weeks. There was a metal piece you had to attach with no instructions, that I believe helps you to adjust the light. On our light, it seems to be faulty, easily falling off the light. That was a disappointment considering the price of the lamp. We already have an Artemide floor lamp and desk lamp, so our expectations were pretty high.

Excellent Little Clip-On Lamp
+ Elegant, no-frills design.
By:F. B. , Homeowner (San Francisco, CA, USA)
Fully satisfied and very pleased
Bought two of these to clip onto bookshelves to be used as reading lamps. Not quite as flexible as to placement as hoped for but definitely adequate. Produces wonderful non-glare light for reading. Just what we were looking for. And they're unobtrusive.
By:Cobble H. , Homeowner (Brooklyn, NY)
The Tolomeo Clip is exactly what it should be. Well designed and constructed. The clip is strong and the cord length is generous. Expensive for a small light but we feel they are still a good value.
