Artemide Tolomeo Classic Table Lamp in Aluminum with 9" Base

There are so many Artemide Tolomeo Lamp choices that the choices can be overwhelming. While most customers choose the Tolomeo Classic Aluminum with 9" Base; Stardust offers several other varieties/color finishes of the Artemide Tolomeo Classic Table Lamp: Tolomeo Classic with table in-set pivot (requires a 3/4'' dia. hole and supports 2.5" max. depth), Tolomeo Classic with table clamp (2" max. clamp opening) or with twin accessory (allowing two independent lamp units to be fitted into one base).  Color finishes include either classic aluminum (offered above), white, black or polished aluminum.  The Artemide Tolomeo Classic Table Lamp can take any E26-type screw-in base light bulb such as incandescent, fluorescent, halogen, even the new screw-in type LED bulbs.  We also offer a stationary Tolomeo Classic LED and LED MWL (My White Light) version with build-in LED lights that consume only 10W to 12W of power.  Just make your preferred selection above.

When the Tolomeo Desk Lamp (1987) was honored with the Compasso d'Oro Award in 1989, the lamp was recognized for achieving the perfect marriage of design and engineering. Since then, the Tolomeo Collection has grown to include an assortment of sizes and colors. The Tolomeo design begins with a heavy base and ends with a matte anodized aluminum diffuser that swivels 360 degrees and can be easily turned with a cool-to-the-touch steel handle. In between, the lamp's dual-arm body adjusts by loosening and tightening the central and bottom joints, and steel tension cables provide infinite positions in which the lamp can be held.
