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.

Purposeful and Modern

For a while we've been using the Artemide Tolomeo desk lamp for our studio. It's a classic lamp that never fails. When we moved into our new studio (which is a converted 1800's loft with 20ft ceilings) the mega floor lamp seemed to be the only choice. It's modern and purposeful and task-oriented in a way that few large floor lamps can be. Classic, well-made pieces never go out of style and always serve to provide the right touch necessary to strike the modern design tone.

Stunning floor fixture

The Tolomeo Mega Floor Lamp exceeds in form and function. It is a classic, recognizable fixture. It is adjustable and emits the right amount of light for reading. I use it over my desk in an office, and it lights up my workspace with style.

Wonderful lamp! Excellent quality and design!

This lamp is a timeless masterpiece. I have waited for months to find this lamp used on local and national web sites and I have never seen it sell for less than ylignting's price. Artemide always delivers when it comes to design and quality. I have longed for a lamp similar in scale and application to the Arco floor lamp by Flos. This lamp cost a fraction of the price is dimmable and adjustable.

fantastic light

Received the Tolomeo Mega Floor lamp from Ylighting in 2 days. Great service, prompt shipping and a fantastic light. You can't argue with the classic yet industrial design of this lamp. Build quality and simplicity are also a true pleasure.

This lamp is beautiful and practical.

I received this beautiful lamp very quickly after placing my order in several well packed boxes. The assembly was easy if cumbersome because of the size of the lamp. The assembled Tolomeo looks stunning in my living room (I did have to buy the appropriate bulb) and adds a great architectural element. I didn't realize that the lamp came with a foot switch and dimmer, which was a nice surprise, since it allows me to use less than the 150 watts in the bulb. The foot switch is also very convenient and out of the way, not distracting from the clean lines of the chrome construction.

Stunning Lamp

This classic, modern lamp works perfectly in our living room.
It is graceful and elegant and gives off the right amount of light
while making a statement.
It's very sturdy even though it's really tall and it was so easy to set up.
I received it quickly and it came perfectly packed.

Versatile and Beautiful.

I feel like I have something extremely utilitarian yet elegant. I highly recommend this product, it's a classic and the price is relatively inexpensive compared to other floor lamps. Y lighting makes it even more affordable with free shipping.....thank you....!

Classic Design and Functionality!

This is a great lamp at a great price. Its so very hard to find a classic look at a reasonable price. You usually have to compromise and buy from a West Elm or other outlet for an imitation of a classic design. Inevitably you regret it because the quality and design details are not there. This is an affordable, no compromise lamp. Its great as a lamp and makes a strong statement,. The look is modern and it is well made. We have two tolomeo lamps mounted on the walls for bedside lighting - the look works for our mid century home. The only gripe would be to be sure you have the right lamp shade color before you order - they wouldn't let us exchange the shade without returning the whole lamp (only the maker knows why). Otherwise, great experience with Y-Lighting. Will be buying from them again shortly (love those Nelson Bubble lamps!)

Beautiful modern floor lamp!

My Tolomeo mega with the 17" polycarbonate diffuser just arrived and looks amazing in my loft. It really highlights the high ceilings. Easy to assemble.

Great design for great value.

This lamp is simple and beautiful with a great deal of presence. Changed the feel our room immediately. For one lamp, it puts out great light. We have it lighting our living room over our Charles sofa from B & B Italia, just not sure what lamp to pair it with since it makes such a statement on its own.

By:Amy R. , Homeowner

Luminous--in all senses

This lamp casts a beautiful, warm light. We bought it with the white shade, which provides a nice counterpoint to its metallic base and the rather industrial cable which is used to adjust its angle. We'd also recommend the 14 inch shade, for perfect proportions.

The All Light is a terrific outdoor fixture.

We installed the All Light on the outside front of our home. We love them. They are clean, fine and do not detract from the house, and look great.
We highly recommend them.

Great floor lamp

I love my new floor lamp! It is an outsized desk lamp that lights my living room with a warm glow from the parchment lamp shade. It arrived earlier than I expected and went together easily with the tool provided.

Fantastic product, fantastic service

We ordered the Tolomeo Mega Floor Lamp which is absolutely perfect. A great, iconic lamp for a great price, too. We debated over the smaller or larger shade, but went with the larger which I am so glad; it isn't too big at all, especially if you have high ceilings as we do. The price at YLighting beats everywhere, and the lamp arrived within a few days. Couldn't ask for better!

A stunning architectural piece for any room in your house

The Tolomeo Mega Floor Lamp is a great example of classic design, and it lights up a room quite nicely too!

It is very easy to assemble, and the heavy base assures that the lamp will not wobble or fall down easily. The chrome body contrasts very nicely with the parchment shade. The versatile positioning of the arms means that it can be placed in a variety of locations, not just the usual corner or next to a sofa or chair. The only drawback is that the cord is not better concealed, but overall, the Tolomeo Floor Lamp is one Mega piece of lighting!

There's a reason it's a classic.

The subtle functional appeal of the metal frame contrasted with the elegant parchment shade (14") makes it a suitable addition to most modern and eclectic interiors. Also, at this scale, this lamp is a bargain.

elegant classic.

I love it. it has great presence. For those thinking of getting it, I would suggest the 14 inch shade.

By:Y.S , Homeowner

5 out of 5
Seen but not seen.

Solidly built. Works at it should. Shade floats. While quite tall, takes very little room. You know it's there, but it's not imposing. Looks sharp in our living room with furniture that is not too MCM. Make sure to get a dimmable CFL. Relative to the lamp, the dimmer could be more substantial (it's plastic and light weight). I like the functionality of the lamp. The lamp and the direction and intensity of the light can be manipulated, which in turn, can change the mood of the room.

beautiful lamp

this lamp fit perfectly into my apt. i normally keep boxes for a few days in order to be completely sure, but there was no question in this case.

i ordered the larger pendant and the overall scale works well for me, i would think the smaller one would be too small.

The lamp works perfectly in my space and is not only functional but beautiful

So far, I love the lamp. I need to adjut with the lighting a little bit - I do not think I have a high enough wattage becuase I was hoping it would provide a little more light than it does. But, overall, it is beautiful and works perfectly in my space - functioning both as a dining room lamp and a living room lmap.

By:Ashley H. , Renter (Durham, NC)

We adore our Tolomeo Mega Floor Lamp... as Keats wrote "a thing of beauty is a joy forever!"

The lamp is an architectural gem but more importantly, it fills our apartment with light which was most needed. We use a double envelope halogen bulb and it floods the ceiling in our first floor dark apartment but also allows us to direct light to our table where we use our computers, read and watch television.
The 14 Inch shade works perfectly in our space and I would recommend this size for most unless you inhabit a large or high ceiling place.

I love this lighting fixture, it serves as a functional, and contemporary floor lamp!

I had been searching for a floor reading light for some time. We live in an old victorian house, that has been completely renovated. We have high ceilings, with contemporary and modern furnishings, and the Tolomeo floor lamp works great!
It is functional and stylish!

Great Product

A well made and good looking floor lamp. We have this setup in a dining area over the table. We are using it with a G40 150W bulb (max size recommended by manufacturer), and it provides plenty of light. The dimmer circuit is a good feature on this product.

By:David , Renter (New York)

very happy with purchase

it took for a while to find a right floor lamp for our new house, because our house is traditional craftman style, despite of our personal style being modern and simple. This lamp satisfies both side so flawlessly. warm glow at night that lamp generates makes our living room so cozy and cuddly, while in day time lamp stands like a contemporary sculpture. so beautiful. shipped with well packaged box. Highly recommend.

Great piece to bring the room together

This modern piece is great to create a comfy yet stylish ambience. It is very versatile as it can be used as a focal point of a room or blend in well with the rest of your furniture pieces. Using 150W halogen maybe not be sufficient for a large room but it is enough for my living room in about a 750 sq one bedroom apt. The light hangs over the couch, which can be quite hot under the bulb, but it can easily be rotated when you are sitting on the couch so that you do not have to be sweating. I am very satisfied with the purchase and it looks more expensive than it costs. I would definitely recommend it to others.

By:Justin , Renter (NY, NY)

Unsurpassed design. Took some work to level it however.

The perfect look! So many long pieces that if one is bent at all in shipping the how lamp can appear off center. I had to tweek the shade a bit to get it to hang perfectly - but worth it for the look. The packaging was excellent - not sure this can be avoided.

Really striking product

I ended up with the 17 '' lamp shade and I`m thinking about getting the 14 "
because the effect of the lamp has been very much like Alice in Wonderland .
everything else looks very small in the room . It amuses me very much and makes me smile .
The lamp has effected a fascinating change in scale primarily because the ceilings are only 8'
I like it very much even though it`s the only thing I look at in the room as it hangs there .

Beautifully designed lamp

This lamp really brighten up our living room with its light as well as its sleek design. It goes with 6-sitter De Las Espada dining table very well. It was like a picture on Dwell magazine. We originally ordered a 17-inch shase which does not go with 500 square feet living room. So we exchanged with a 14-inch and it worked out very well even though we need to wait for an approval for exchange and wrap the previous back into the original box. While we are waiting, we tried a halogen light bulb without a shade and it also looked very modern as well. The lamp itself is excellent in its design and function.

Floor Lamp Adds Elegance to Dining Area

I live in a converted 1912 carriage house that also serves as my urban design and art studio. All of my furniture are classic modern pieces. My dining room table is by Le Corbusier and its chairs are by Breuer. They are set on an Indian oriental rug of muted tones. The area was under lighted, a very dark area to have a meal or drinks. I saw the Tolomeo Mega Floor Lamp in magazines and thought that it would be just the lamp to light the dining area and to complete it. I was very pleased to add it to my furnishings. My guests compliment it. Now I can see what I am eating great style and elegance.

This lamp is definitely a statement piece! I love it and it works great in our open, minimalist living-room setting. It came in multiple boxes that were carefully packaged and putting it together was a breeze! I would definitely recommend this lamp for a space that is large enough to provide distance to enjoy the lamp shape seeing that it definitely is an imposing statement piece.

Beautiful Lamp with Big Proportions

The Mega Floor Lamp is simple and well made. Beautiful in the room.

Some notes:

-- Although not visually bulky, lamp has a very broad reach, and so you should consider the proportions in your room.

-- 17" shade is not too large (in fact, looks small) in a high-ceilinged room (12 ft ceilings).

-- Parchment shade gives off a warm amberish-yellowish light, even with a double-walled halogen bulb. I had expected a whiter light, but still fine and beautiful.

-- Design of wiring, which runs down the main pole on the outside, is not visually neat. Could have been better designed. Wiring perhaps should have been clear instead of black?

-- On-off switch and dimmer is ugly and bulky, and could have been better executed.

Big picture: Beautiful, simple light with some pedestrian wiring design.

It looks good and functions well.

Love it! Easy to put together. I got the polycarbonate diffuser and it is light silver; looks like satin close up and silver metal from a distance and is more modern. The light was easy to assemble and looks great. I use it at the corner of an L shaped sofa as a reading lamp. It looks great in my high ceiling home. It really makes a statement. I recommend this with no reservation.

Tolomeo Mega Floor Lamp, A Classic

There are a few products that remain beautiful over decades. The Tolemeo series is one of them. The Mega Floor Lamp is gorgeous, spare and elegant, beautifully made, easy to assemble, useful in many spaces. Like the desk lamps and wall lamps in the series, they deserve their place at MOMA.

Yes, I own two Tolomeo desk lamps, and I thought I'd get the MEGA as a counterpoint. What a magnificent lamp. Monumental in scope, it is simple, easy to maneuver, and fits in well with my 16 foot ceiling. Great quality, and easy to assemble. Thank G-d for Artemide!

stylish, simple design, versatile with great light

The scale of this lamp is great with a high ceiling. The flexibility allows for movement of the light and the dimmer adds to the levels of lighting. It is heavy and secure within the range of movement.

I bought this lamp for my office/music studio – a small room with insufficient lighting. I was worried that it would be too big, too much for this small room but it is absolutely perfect. When I need the room well lit for reading or working, it's there. And when I want it more subtle, the dimmer switch gives me just what I want. I have it angled over a red leather loveseat and I smile now every time I go in that room. Large room, small room, this is the perfect lamp.

By:Anne M. , Homeowner (Scottsdale)

A beautiful and functional modern classic

The Tolomeo line of lamps by Artimede are simply classic in design, with just enough of their Italian heritage showing through. But it is the Mega-- with its seven-foot stature-- that really stands out. When one is used to the desk lamps, the Mega has an almost cartoonish appearance. But this quickly subsides, and what is left is an elegant and highly functional addition to your room.

By:Neil D. , Homeowner (Mesa, Arizona)

a classic.

the tolomeo table lamp has always been a favorite of mine because of its refined industrial aesthetic. the mega floor lamp is no different in its appeal. i purchased it with the 17" shade. the proportion gives it a great presence and visual impact. it is very much a design classic.

By:J.C. , Designer (chicago)

Great, minimalist lamp.

Great, minimalist design. Perfect addition to a modern or minimalist style room. Even better if you can get a good deal, as it's a moderately expensive piece, but still much better priced than many other Italian or other artsy pieces.

The great accessory piece

The Tolomeo is the accessory that really brings a room together. The lines of this lamp is something to admire and its the reason that I've been eyeing this for months. It was also incredibly simple to assemble! My only question - is the shade supposed to be slightly crooked? I somehow can't get mine to look perfectly straight.

This is a beautiful arch lamp at a fairly reasonable price. Make sure you use one of the light bulbs indicated in the instructions. If not, the dimmer will make a noise.

Tolomeo Mega Floor Lamp is perfect for us!

I bought this floor lamp overhanging our dining table and it is the perfect alternatitve to a pendant/chandelier (I did not want to go to an electrician for hardwiring, at least for now). This lamp serves as a beautiful modern piece to my 9.5 ft dining area with adjustable lighting. Just don't use the fluorescent lightbulb that comes with it (get the incandescent GE soft white 150V).

A piece with both form and function!

Love the light, although I was told it would have a bottom diffuser, with which it would be 100% perfect. Without, it is 90%, well made, solid materials, great quality.

Beautiful, precise and architectural

Impeccable quality - threaded parts are precision machined aluminum, anodized base post is flawless and even the weight is balanced. Added that needed bit of visual complexity to an otherwise plain space. Parchment shade emits a very warm light and contrasts with harder lines of the lamp itself.

I have just finished putting it together. It took me 2 hours 'cos I was very careful and it was rather heavy (I'm 80). I also took my time as I was unsure whether it would be the knockout I envisioned, and, if not, I would then have to put it all back again properly in the boxes and ship it back . It is now in place and the news is that it looks fabulous, absolutely perfect and just stunning. Its even better than I thought. Goes beautifully with my Nelson Bubble Lamp over the dining room table. I love it. Thanks to the powers that be and to Y Lighting and Obama economics.

P.S. The instructions for putting it together could have been a little clearer, and I had a tough time puttitng the wire into the loops.

It's everything that I thought it would be.

This lamp is gorgeous. It is also stable, which really allows it to stand separate from the Tolomeo knock-offs that are out there for cheaper prices. Easy to assemble, it makes a beautiful and practical addition to our home. It looks great both lit and unlit.

High quality and timeless.

We have a prewar apartment furnished with midcentury and clean-lined modern pieces. Period-typical for a 1920s building, there is no light fixture in the living room. I did not want to install a ceiling light, but also did not want a room full of lamps. I've been eyeing the Tolomeo Mega for over a year, but had a number of doubts: (1) would it look too '80s Italian with the chrome and the wire? (2) it has no bottom diffuser to shield the bulb-- would the overhead illumination be too harsh?; (3) is the quality really that great? With another light-deprived winter imminent, I got the Mega with a 17" parchment shade. It's great. Exceeded expectations. We put it behind the corner of the L-shaped sofa -- it is a reading lamp if you sit in the corner, room lighting if you extend it over the middle of the space, and it swings over the adjacent dining table as task or dining light. It does not scream its presence, but it is lovely to look at. It has no disputes with its mid-century neighbors (in fact, it seems to like the Nelson lamp in the room). It is very tall, and the arch emphasizes the high ceilings, so it is not at all claustrophobic (that was a 4th concern). The globe bulb is not harsh, especially with the dimmer judiciously used. Finally, it is solid. A precise piece of lighting. I should have acted sooner.

Becomes the dominant feature in our minimalist living room ...but that's exactly what we wanted.
Ylighting was, as always, flawless from web to door - ordering shipping etc seamless. Easy to assemble.
And the sale price was just icing on the cake!

Game changing

The lamp is really changing the atmosphere of the room it enters. When off, it has a sculptural presence. When on, it diffuses a very gentle warm light and becomes the main object of the room.

Packaging is excellent. Mounting takes less than 1 hour.
Large shade (17 inches) is recommended for living room/family room.

Finding the right position in the room takes some time.

So I would say that there is clearly a before and an after.

Solid Piece of Art

This is my 12th Artemide purchase and 3rd Tolomeo lamp and I was frankly amazed on how easy and intuitive it was to assemble this lamp. The assembly instructions were frankly not necessary and I was able to get this lamp in operation in less than 10 minutes. It took more time to clean up an dispose of the packaging.

This provides the lighting I need for the dark loft (dimmer appreciated) and the solid construction and its beautiful timeless form continues to provide me with hours of pleasure. The superfast shipping was an added bonus.

Love it.

My Mom and sister both have this lamp and I loved the look of it so much I got one for myself. Easy to assemble and love the functionality of the swinging arm; we are able to utilize the lamp in our family room and our dining room just by swinging the arm!

I needed overhead lighting for a dining table but didn't want to install one in the ceiling of my apartment. This is the perfect solution! Beautiful lamp and does just what I need it to do.

The best of form and function

Though later backordered and shipment delayed a little longer than expected after the initial purchase date, the lamp came in good shape packed within 4 separate boxes. As many reviewers have commented, it's a beautiful light and unique in appearance. It positions smoothly and works fine for task as well as general room lighting. I'm using a 75W equivalent LED which is plenty of light and not too coldly white wih the parchment diffuser. Definitely an investment, but it seemed ylighting offered the best overall price among multiple sellers.

Icon of modern design

Easy to install, good quality. Timeless accent. Great price. The only little thing, shipment was delayed a little and I did not receive this information until I asked.
Love the lamp.

Bold & Beautiful. Buy it!

I bought it for my 144 sq ft work studio for its striking, bold look and for extra task lighting. The mega lamp is way taller than what my small room needs but I wanted it that way because it's fun to explore scale when decorating. For a big lamp it doesn't get in the way but it makes a striking statement. The dimmer function adds excellent versatility. I dreaded putting it together, but it was easier than I imagined, and it comes with great instructions. It's not a cheap lamp, but I consider this a wise investment as I will be using it and admiring it every single day.

Beautiful, but can be a little off-axis

This lamp is beautiful, but the last arm of mine is just a tiny bit twisted to the side, making the shade impossible to align horizontally with the floor.

Classic lamp for creating intimate spaces

Nothing comes close to the classic design of this floor lamp. Mine is located in my main conversation area in a larger, open-space living room. I have ceiling lighting in the space, but when I want to create an intimate conversational atmosphere I use the Tolomeo with the ceiling lighting well dimmed. It is the perfect choice for the area. Like others have expressed, my primary complaint with this lamp is that one must be careful about its horizontal positioning because the floor balance is not sufficient to maintain stability in certain horizontal positions. This problem could be easily addressed if the manufacturer put their minds to it.

Beautiful but if it has repair needs you are in trouble

This is the most beautiful, functional light. It provides good light and is striking, stylish and functional. I just purchased my second one because I am having trouble with the Artemide company getting the first repaired. First of all the company only has an address. They have no listed phone number or e mail. Y lighting made the contact and got the paperwork for the return because the whole thing blew and would not light within 18 months. I should have known something was wrong because the bulb receptacle would get hot with various bulbs. The company took three months to return the lamp and at times when I called looking for it, I got the impression it was lost. Got it out of the box, the tension wore snappet upright (possibly wire too tight) and I tried to bend it at a joint and broke it. Had to send a letter to the company as to how to return it again for repairs as the phone number I got for someone there goes to voicemail and no one has returned the call. Still waiting for them to get back to me. Broken lamp is still at home. Meanwhile hoping the same doesn't happen to the second lamp. All my lamps are Artemide because I love the styles and another lamp has a problem with the switch. Dread!!! May write to the NY Times about how unresponsive this company is to repairs. They did give me a discount on repair of the first lamp because the lamp was so new. Style and looks ate 5 star. Lamp life and repair are one star.
