TOLOMEO SHADE Floor
Michele De Lucchi
Born in Italy in 1961, Michele De Lucchi designed the Tolomeo in 1987. The lamp is now available in sizes from mini to mega is arguably Artemide’s most iconic fixture. Having a background in architecture and industrial design, De Lucchi also favors a craftsman-like approach and since 1990 through the line “Produzione Privata,” he has created a series of artisan-produced items such as small sculptures carved with a power saw.
Born in Milan in 1935, Italian architect Giancarlo Fassini was a leading figure in Italian avant-garde design beginning in the 1970’s. Through his work with the Radical “anti-design” movement he explored scale distortion, color and promoted the social relevance and humor of objects. The Tolomeo, his iconic lamp series for Artemide, was created in collaboration with Michele De Lucchi.
An extension to the iconic Tolomeo family, Tolomeo with shade features the same arm balancing body system as the Tolomeo table lamp combined with a selection of parchment or fabric shades, giving a warmer and more transitional look to the original version.
-Floor support consisting of weighted steel base with stamped aluminum cover and stem in chromed steel combined with Tolomeo with shade table model for conversion to floor model.
-7” diameter shade available in parchment paper or in pale grey satin and polycarbonate fiber blend, remains vertical regardless of arm angle.
