Pair of Artemide "Tizio" Lamps by Richard Sapper

About

Designed by Richard Sapper for Artemide in 1972, the Tizio lamp is a true classic of modern design. Built with two counterweights to allow the user to direct the light where it’s needed, the lamp adjusts with a pull or push and stays in place without having to tighten a knob or adjust a fastener. The wiring is housed in the arms to create the clean, simple look of Tizio that screams 1980s. Highly concentrated halogen bulb. .Winner of the prestigious Compasso d’Oro award in 1979, the Tizio is included in MoMA’s permanent collection. Prize Grand Prix Triennale XV 1974 Gold Medal Triennale XV 1974 Gold Medal at Bio 9 Ljubljana 1981 Selection Compasso d'Oro 1979 Three position switch allows for two levels of light intensity. Design changes were made to the head in the nineties – a glass cover was added, a thin, wire handle was added to tilt the head since it tends to be hot to the touch. One lamp reflects these changes. The other is an earlier model. When extended vertically, stands 47” tall. When extended horizontally, it is 31” wide. Base diameter is 4.5”.
