Design by Paolo Rizzatto, 1986.
In Costanza "the switch has moved!" The lamp uses a sensory dimmer rod-switch close to the light, which only has to be lightly touched to adjust its on-off intensity through four levels of brightness. The light and washable shade, resting on two points of balance and therefore capable of oscillating if bumped, diffuses a warm and pleasant light. Its unmistakable, subtle but structurally solid profile, fits naturally into any interior, thanks also to the telescopic rod that can be adjusted to different heights.
Costanza poses no restraints on matching styles. It is fascinating and inimitable and can recreate the most traditionally accepted atmospheres as a domestic image. It is always in the vanguard with its refined technology. Its square aluminum base, treated with rotational brushing, highlights the quality and distinction of its material. Shade is silk-screened polycarbonate shade.
Telescopic height adjustment.

Paolo Rizzatto was born in 1941 in Milan. He took his degree in Architecture in I965 at the Milan Polytechnic. He works as a freelancer in the field of architecture, design and interior design and continues to develop his experience as interior lighting designer. In 1978, Paolo Rizzatto founded Luceplan together with Riccardo Sarfatti. He has designed for Arteluce, Artemide, Luceplan, Alias, Cassina, Nemo, Molteni, Knoll, Kartell, Philips, Montina, Thonet and Guzzini.
Luceplan was founded in 1978 by Italian architects Riccardo Sarfatti, Sandra Severi, and Paolo Rizzatto to custom design lighting fixtures for the commercial and industrial sectors in Europe. But with designs that also appealed to the residential market, Luceplan has created products with this market in mind since 1981. Merging new design and technological solutions with enduring style, quality, function, and efficiency, Luceplan products are extremely popular in Europe and have been available in the U.S. since 1978.
Costanza is a still good choice
I already had floor and table models when buying a new floor lamp. Overall I agree with the other reviews that instructions and function can be tricky. I think it is due to both cheaper manufacturing and the consequences of online purchases that need to be assembled. My table lamp was bought long ago from a local store, cost more money than the floor lamp just did, and seems much more solid. However, I went into this purchase knowing what to expect (less) so I am happy. The style is beautiful and versatile.

Stunning to look at. Beautiful light. Only three of the four settings work.
Does not work as advertised. Pamphlet claims for four different modes... only three modes work. Nonetheless, a beautiful lamp. A little more expensive than it should be.

Beautiful and simple, but does not produce a lot of light
I love the profile of this lamp; it is gorgeous, simple and elegant. The shade was a little hard to assemble and I wonder if I did it correct or backwards... it was very hard to punch the prongs through the holes (I have it prongs facing out). The light the lamp emits is quite dim, even at (what I think is) full strength. I can't figure out a system for the dimming, sometimes when I touch the rod it comes on full, sometimes dim. I'm sure there is a rhyme or reason to it, but I haven't been able to discern one. Overall, I have to say I love the look of the lamp, but I'm not certain it will work because my space requires ample light. This would be nice in a spot where you just want a subtle glow. It is way too dim to read by, for example.

Great Design Perfect Light
Okay this is a light you see quite often, specially in The Netherlands where I am from, but its a modern classic. Simple but present. The light with the dimmer is very effective. The only thing I need to find out is whether indeed a 150w bulb should be placed instead of the 60w. This is what they recommended to friends back home because the dimmer would work better.

Had difficulty with shade assembly. The included instructions did not match what I found in the box. I put the shade together in the only way that seemed reasonable, but the shade has a bit of an odd, slightly asymmetric shape (peaked at the top of the seam), and so I am uncertain about whether this is the way it is supposed to look. Images on Y Lighting and Luceplan web sites don't help. But I am very happy with the quality of the light the shade produces, and I love the on/off/dimmer function and the height adjustability.
