Tolomeo Micro Table Lamp in Black & Yellow by Michele de Lucchi & Giancarlo Fass

$360per item

About

“I designed the Tolomeo in 1986. Perhaps I ought to say that I invented it, as in point of fact the idea for a new mechanism came before the lamp was created.” Michele De Lucchi. The iconic Tolomeo lamp is now available in vibrant pops of color. Shades of blue, yellow, coral and white add a bright accent to the black base. The lamp features the same flexible arm and diffuser as the iconic original, working perfectly as both a functional task lamp and design object. Brought out in 1987 and designed for Artemide by Michele De Lucchi with Giancarlo Fassina, the Tolomeo was an immediate bestseller, consolidating a working relationship that continues to this day. Inspired by traditional balanced arm lamps like the famous Naska Loris, his challenge was to combine an iconic and “domestic” form with innovative technologies and materials, adapting it to a wide variety of uses and settings. Today it is a well-known symbol of the modern object, commonly seen in houses, offices and hotels, on the desks of architects and on photographic and even film sets.
