With its new joints and base, Fortebraccio guarantees an extraordinary fluidity of movement and total light positioning freedom. Thanks to its innovative central joint, the lamp's two arms rotate independently, horizontally and vertically, allowing it to take on extreme and functional positions.

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.
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.

It's not just a lamp. It's a work of art.
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.

Sophisticated, Modern, & Functional. Perfect Fit!
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.

Very versatile and stylish
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
