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.
“No desk lamp should make you use two hands to position it.” Michele De Lucchi
A study in balance and movement, the Tolomeo table lamp is designed for a fully adjustable direction of light. Created for Artemide in 1987 by Michele De Lucchi and Giancarlo Fassina, Tolomeo has become an icon almost 30 years after its birth.
Now available with integrated LED light source, model variations include an incorporated dimmer switch on the head, a motion sensor which uses passive infrared technology for energy conservation, and/or Tunable White LED technology allowing for varied intensities and color temperatures to be obtained.
