Design by Michele De Lucchi, Giancarlo Fassina.

In 1989, when the Tolomeo Table Lamp 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 Tolomeo Classic Table Lamp is composed of an extruded aluminum full adjustable, articulated arm with die-cast aluminum joints and tension control knobs. Features a stamped anodized aluminum or polished aluminum tiltable and rotatable diffuser with incorporated dimmer switch. Ships with a 9" weighted steel table base with a stamped aluminum cover. The Tolomeo Classic Table Lamp is available in aluminum, black, white or polished aluminum finishes. An optional in-set pivot or table clamp mount are sold separately.

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 Not just a desk lamp any more.... I have several of these and they've always been a stand by for my office. Recently I've tried them as a bed side table and I'm very happy with the results. Because of the adjustable arm, you can direct the light to a reading position. Or just as easily, you can swing the shade up and towards the wall as an indirect accent light. I've just tried two of the black finish and they are beautiful in person. A nice matte finish that does not show any prints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This lamp is a classic design that will always be modern. This lamp has a sculptural quality that goes beyond a traditional desk or task light. Highest recommendation for beauty and functionality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Tolomeo lamp is a blend of sophisticated style, elegant simplicity, high-quality workmanship and high-performance lighting. After many years of seeing Tolomeo lamps in private homes and workplaces, and advising others to purchase them, I finally purchased one for myself. My only regret is not having purchased it earlier! It adds a sophistication and elegance to my office, where it sits atop my large glass desk and completely illuminates it. My previous lamp is pathetic in comparison, only generating enough light for 1/3 of the desk. Somehow, I tolerated that for years. The installation is simple, as is the operation. I am also impressed with the quality of the materials and the solid feel of the switch. This lamp is as finely crafted as a medical instrument would be. Beyond its current incarnation as a table/desk lamp, this lamp is extensible to a floor-standing lamp with the purchase of an optional extender. I plan to leave mine on my desk, but now that I've taken the plunge, I intend to purchase others for other rooms in the house. If you have been thinking about purchasing an eye-catching, classically-styled and sophisticated lamp, you won't be disappointed with choosing the Tolomeo!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect task lamp for my work table. I have owned two Tolomeo reading lamps for many years and they have been incredible in terms of function and appearance. When it came time to look for a new task lamp for my work table, I naturally turned to the Tolomeo line. I am totally satisfied with my lamp: the span of the fixture is perfect for the size of my table. It looks great and is a perfect addition to my studio.

Is this model the Tolomeo lamps medium?  Can this be hung on the wall or is it just the mini model that can be done?

Asked by: alfaro94
Thanks for your interest in this design. The Tolomeo series is one of our most popular lines. There a numerous versions, this one being the "classic" table version, which has the following dimensions: 25.5" high and 30.75" long (top bracket not extended). There are two smaller sizes available, the micro and the mini, and the maxi is the larger version, so I suppose this would in fact be considered the medium version. If you wanted the wall mount version, search for "Tolomeo Classic Wall Light," which has the exact same dimensions as this one but without the base. It is also available with either an S or a J bracket. Should you require some additional clarification beyond this and would like to speak to a product specialist directly, feel free to give us a call anytime at 866.842.6209 and we can assist you.

If I order one with the additional base, can I also get the table clamp include?

Asked by: tchen24
Hi there. So for these fixtures you need to specify one particular type of base via the drop down, so the fixture would not come with two bases. What we could do for you if you like however is order you just the additional "table base" as a separate parts order, meaning that you would have the same lamp that could be swapped out between either base. All parts inquiries are accepted via email, so send a quick email to parts@ylighting.com with your name, best contact information, and the part you are hoping to replace. Make sure to reference the original fixture as well, so that the process goes a bit faster. From there, our parts team will create a custom invoice for you and reach out to the manufacturer directly for pricing and availability. You can call in payment at a later time. We look forward to your email, and thanks for contacting us! Parin YLighting Customer Service

I have a TOLOMEO classic floor lamp.  The shade was seriously damaged during a move from Europe to the States.  How can I order a new shade and how much does it cost (for the moving insurance).  Thank you very much, Michèle

does the lamp not include a table base?

Asked by: sadierose
Hi Sadierose! Artemide offers a table base as one of three base options for this popular Tolomeo Classic Table Lamp. The other two are a table clamp; and an inset pivot which you have to drill a hole into your table according to where you would like to place it for a more permanent option. The 9" table base option comes in your choice of black or aluminum. Click on the “Base” Box after you chose the Body to build the lamp that suits your needs. To shed some more light on the Tolomeo line of lamps, feel free to call us at 866.428.9289! Stephanie, YLighting Customer Service.

Do you sell the bulb for the desk lamp. Bought in europe

Asked by: Elain
Hi there! With very few specialty options, we do not sell bulbs alone for any of our fixtures. We refer our clients to bulb-only retailers like 1000bulbs.com, bulbs.com, or bulbman.com to order replacement bulbs. We ourselves refer to these sites all the time to compare bulb options. Thanks for reaching out. Please feel free to contact us anytime at 866.842.6209 with any further questions about this product, or to follow up with anything else. We're here to help!
