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. The classic design is now available in vibrant colors.

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

Great multi use classic lamp
I purchased several Tolomeo Lamps and am using them in different rooms. They fit in any decor. Orange was not as bright as I would have liked.

it's very metallic + all techno-y looking (which i dig).
actually, i like the lamp. it's one drawback is that the head doesn't flex which is the one thing i wanted it to do. would i buy it again? maybe, depending on it's intended use. in truth, i wanted the red one (with a flexible head).

I am very happy with this beautiful and functional desk lamp.
I recommend this lamp. It is not cheap, but the quality and elegant design make it well worth it.

This is a great product.
These lamps are perfect bedside reading lamps if you have a small room, a double bed, and two small nightstands. There are well-crafted, beautiful to look at, and give a good nightime reading light.

Best bed side lamp I've tried. This is my fourth attempt in six years to have a bed side lamp that isn't tempermental. The others all had bi-pin bulbs which went wonky along with their sockets in 9 months. This classic lamp takes a inexpensive screw in chandelier bulb. I also appreciate the solid on-cord switch.

Perfect with a splash of color.
I bought this lamp in blue for one of the offices at my company. It works perfectly and adds just the right amount of light. I'm considering putting them on every desk.
