Very flexible, very well put together, is on the larger size for a desk table but I have managed to put the base in the corner of the desk and bring out the lamp head, very strong beam of light that can be easily moved around, no problems

I needed something to be functional but to hold it's on in a room with bold furnishings and some large light fixtures. They do so beautifully.
They are light weight and easy to position, but have visual mass.
The subtle shapes and thoughtfully designed hardware are elegant and sophisticated.

I had a Tolomeo lamp on my desk at work. My office manager needed a new desk lamp, so rather than buy her one, I gave her my Tolomeo and purchased the Fortebraccio. The shape is beautifully organic with very subtle curves. It looks a little bit like the femur bones of a human leg.
The only downside - the middle joint is a little on the weak side. I changed bulbs from a standard incandescent to an LED because of the long life and very low heat. However, LED light bulbs are considerably heavier. I had to crank the tightness on the middle joint as tight as I could so the headpiece didn't drop. If they made the friction on the middle joint a little easier to ratchet up, this lamp would be perfect.

Flexible adjustment allows one to use the light as a detailed task light or desk wash lighting. Lamp has rubberized coated components with a cool hand-feel.
Need to use incandescent bulb though as LED would be heavy given design of head tension adjustment.
