FLOOR TOLOMEO FLOOR LAMP



The Artemide Tolomeo Floor Lamp is an icon of Italian modern design. It was designed by Michele De Lucchi and Giancarlo Fassina in 1986 for Artemide and remains one of the most popular floor lamps in production. In its original configuration, it consists of a heavy base, two straight polished aluminum arm sections, and a matte aluminum reflector head which can swivel 360°. Steel tension cables attached to springs hidden inside the arms complete the constant-tension structure. The Artemide Tolomeo Lamp was awarded with the Compasso d'Oro design award in 1989.
