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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent reading lamp! I purchased this lamp for my employer. He is 90 years old and loves to sit in his library and read. His eyesight is poor, so he needs strong illumination on the pages. A year ago I bought this model as wall lamps for either side of his bed and he loved how easily they move and position over his reading - the articulation is great. So when it came time for a new floor lamp in his study, we bought another Tolomeo. The first one that arrived did not work, but Y-Lighting immediately replaced it. In the black finish it recedes and has a clean simple look. He is delighted that he can now read in his library as easily as in his bed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design and love the brushed aluminum finish As a designer, I love to see all types of home furnishings that have intrinsically good design, and the Tolomeo lamp is one of those wonderful pieces. I've been wanting one for a long time and am quite pleased that I made the purchase. It looks great, with it's brushed aluminum finish, and is a nice contrast to wood, leather, glass and stone finishes. YLighting is a very good site, easy to use, and the shipping is handled very well. If you've been thinking about buying this lamp, now is the time!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stunning piece of lighting architecture We bought the Tolomeo Reading floor lamp for our difficult dormer'd guest room with its complex roof-line hoping that it would be able to fit in and move around the low slung sloping ceiling. This lovely, visually minimal, streamlined piece is perfect for providing excellent light in this difficult room, admits easy manoeuvrability around the low sloping ceiling with many plane changes. It looks great and feels very good although I don't feel confident leaving the arm slung out far for fear that the tension in the string will not be sufficient to provide sufficient counterbalance to the long lever arm when the head is pulled out far. I do pull it out when I need to - but never leave the head pulled out when I leave the room for fear that it may actually get pulled down and the head hit the floor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Timeless classic - quality construction This version of the Tolomeo lamp is as iconic as the full sized desktop version, but makes the perfect complement for a chairside lamp for both commercial applications (lobby) as well as home (living room, bedside). The single hinge emulates the table top lamp (the next size up has two hinges), and maintains the iconic design of the original with a taller profile without disturbing the designs other proportions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and Functional I enjoy reading and wanted a lamp that was bright and easy to adjust. The Tolomeo lamp is perfect. I paid a little extra for the black finish, and I love the way it blends in with my furniture. I had no trouble putting it together, and it was ready to use in a couple of minutes. This lamp will definitely be one of the pieces that I will bring with me when I'm ready to downsize to a smaller place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How far can you lean? Probably not as far as the Tolomeo Reading lamp. I purchased this lamp over the floor version to take advantage of its aggressive leaning position. It is an excellent light source to have when your project is all laid out on the floor. Please note that the lamp is a bit smaller than the floor lamp and it is best displayed over your favorite lounge chair or bed vs a large desk.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth it—looks great. Great lamp. Packed with recyclable materials; easy to assemble; lightweight; very adjustable. Casts light beautifully for reading... a 100W bulb may even be too bright for some readers. Only (small) complaint is that some of the component parts were carelessly injection-molded and show a visible "ridge"... a shame for such a well-designed piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This a beautiful and versatile lamp The tolomeo lamp is not only a design classic, but also such a versatile and useful source of light. We have one next to our couch as a reading lamp and one next to our bed for the same purpose. The service from Ylighting was fantastic, fast and their prices are as competitive as I could find on the web. Highly satisfied overall.
