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.

Ceiling suspended luminaire for orientable direct incandescent or fluorescent lighting. Developed to offer maximum flexibility of adjustment in the positioning of the light source over the table/task desk surface, regardless of the location of the ceiling junction box.

  • Fully adjustable, articulated arm body structure in extruded, brilliant, natural anodized aluminum.
  • Joints and tension control knobs in polished die-cast aluminum.
  • Tension cables in stainless steel.
  • Choice of 8" anodized matte aluminum diffuser or 10" parchment paper diffuser.
  • Rotatable ceiling supporting canopy in anodized matte aluminum, mounting to standard electrical junction box.

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.

Classic. Functional. Stylish.
 

I needed light over my dining table and over a coffee table. However, unfortunately, I do have junction boxes directly over the two locations. The Tolomoeo Off Center Ceiling Light provided the ideal solution. The fixture is designed to give me that flexibility. I purchased the parchment shade and installed a 75W bulb (100W max). The fixture with that combination of shade and bulb wattage produces filtered light for the entire room and adequately highlights my dining table and the coffee table in my bedroom. (think of the light produced by a Noguchi paper lamp). Installing the light to the ceiling is a very tricky process especially if you have high ceilings (once you attach the wires, there is very little space between the ceiling and base of the lamp; also requires very precise alignment of screws which is difficult to see given the narrow space between the base and ceiling). I recommend hiring an experienced electrician. Will require tow persons to install. Wire cables which are part of the arm mechanism are simple to install. Great light. Expectations were exceeded.

Great Product!
 

I purchased the Tolomeo Off-Center Suspension Light because the electrical box in my dining room is off-center from my table. The concrete ceilings would have made moving the box both expensive and messy, so when I found this light I thought it was the perfect solution.

The fixture is very high quality, as you'd expect from Tolomeo, and it looks fantastic installed - even better than I hoped for. One feature I wasn't aware of is that the fixture rotates almost 360 degrees from the ceiling mount, so not only can it be adjusted from the flexible arms but it can be moved in almost a full circle. In my case, that makes it a perfect light over my buffet when I want to move it away from the table.

YLighting is great, no issues at all with the order and very good pricing compared to other vendors.
