A Look at Artemide's Tolomeo Lamp

Established by Ernesto Gismondi in 1959, has continued to be a force in the lighting industry, most notably for their iconic Tolomeo Lamp Collection. It's a lamp whose name you might not know by heart, but you most likely have seen it. In 1987, Michele De Lucchi designed the Tolomeo series with Giancarlo Fassino and, almost 30 years later, it remains a classic, sought after design that graces many a home and office. Since its inception, the Tolomeo Collection has grown to offer various versions and sizes for just about every lighting situation.

Where it all began… The lamp came about when De Lucchi longed to have one of his own lamps above his drawing table, a place he spent many hours every day.

His design of the Tolomeo design was inspired by a fisherman’s movement of the rods used to support fishing nets. The biggest challenge De Lucchi faced was making sure the lamp stayed put while the arm was being moved into position with only one hand. He solved the problem with stainless steel cables and internal tension springs, and the rest is history. It's no surprise that in 1989 the was awarded the Compasso d’Oro Award for Italian industrial design, thanks to its perfect marriage of design and engineering.

No matter the version, each Tolomeo features a weighted base and a pivoting lampshade. Multiple connected arms allow the lamp to be fully adjustable with the help of those steel tension cables. Also, many of the styles now come in LED versions.
