Design by Paolo Rizzatto and Alberto Meda, 1998.
With its new joints Fortebraccio guarantees a total light positioning freedom. The lamp's distinctive handle conveys a highly charismatic, formal look, and provides an intelligent solution to the problem of directing light emission. Molded in polycarbonate, it is designed in such a way as to be easily held and maneuvered. Can be wall or ceiling mounted. Fixture equipped with an 8 foot cord and plug. Fixture does not have integral on/off switch.

Born in Lenno Tremezzina in the province of Como in 1945, he graduated in mechanical engineering at the Milan Polytechnic in 1969. After being the technical director of Kartell in the seventies, he dedicated himself to design, applying his experience in polyurethane resins and new materials in general. In this period he won two Compasso d'Oro awards.
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.

Got these spots to replace some ornate sconces over a fireplace, seeking an alternative to the ubiquitous Tolomeo. Unfortunately, while the body shape is cool, the silver-finished polycarbonate looked too cheap at just above eye level. Residentially, these would be okay as a high ceiling mount used as true spots, or better yet used commercially in a very large space. Lesson learned.

The Fortebraccio is really a handsome task light. I have installed it in my kitchen, over my sink, and although the manufacturer recommends a common light bulb, I installed a 50W halogen flood. The light is clean, crisp, and illuminates beautifully.
The only problem I encountered, is that I could not get the base or the light to mount absolutely flush to the wall. Perhaps it is the configuration of my existing hex-box that is the problem. Anyhow, a small amount of caulking fixex the problem.

handsome light fixture
A very handsome light fixture. I bought three of them, and they look sharp. Should mention that these appear to be retrofit, without the built in switch. There is still a spot where the switch would have been located, but it is covered with a small flat insert. The lines are not smooth there, and it is a bit confusing at first, but has no effect on function.
I like these lights a lot. Well made, interesting design, practical.

Infinitely adjustable and great looking - classic and classy. I've got two of them on my ceiling and am ordering more. My only suggestion for improvement is to add more holes to the base plate; the 3 1/2" spread for the mounting screws didn't work with the 3" boxes in my ceiling, but the problem was easily solved by drilling a new hole in the baseplate.
