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.
Giancarlo Fassina was born and raised in Milan, Italy. He obtained a degree in Architecture at the Politecnico University in Milan and has worked on several projects involving Industrial Design and has created lighting for Artemide, Luceplan, to name a few. He is a recipient of the Compasso D'oro award for his Tolomeo Series of lamps which he designed together with Michelle de Lucchi.
His work and experiences in different product industrial sectors have allowed him focus his design on projecting lamps & planning and furnishing exhibitions as well as museums. He has collaborated with some of the most important companies in the lighting sector, Luceplan included, for which he projected the lamp Birzi together with Carlo Forcolini.

Timeless and highly functional
The lamp is a classic. The base plate is surprisingly beautiful and the lamp is a good weight and well anchored. The lamp has excellent functionality if you are seeking a floor lamp that can provide light for reading and for close work. We are using it next to a bed but it is very versatile and would work well in a variety of settings. When I ordered the middle size I worried that I needed the largest size, and happily I relied on the sales consultant's advice because the largest size would have been overwhelming for our space.

The classic design doesn't bore me
We bought Tolomeo Mini Floor Lamp for the living room where we read a lot. This is a perfect reading lamp which is adjustable so easily. The base is so stable that we are able to adjust the lamp position with one hand without holding the stem of the light fixture. I am about to buy two Tolomeo lamps for the bed sides. They will give us perfect angle of light for reading at night.

The Tolomeo Mini is ideal task lighting
I needed to find a lamp that could give task lighting for reading and that could also easily swivel to allow my son to both read in bed and to read and work at his nearby desk during the day. The Mini Floor lamp is perfect for those tasks and it has allowed us to solve two needs with one lamp. It adds a beautiful touch of style to a small room without a large footprint. Highly recommended.
