Tolomeo-Micro, All Colors

The latest addition to the Tolomeo series. Definitely the 'baby' of the Tolomeo family. About 35% smaller in scale than the original Tolomeo Classic - the perfect scale for the desktop. The classic best seller of Artemide is now available in a a brilliantly colored Micro version. It is 40% smaller than the Tolomeo Classic lamp and comes in a wide selection of beautiful color choices. The Tolomeo Micro lamp was designed by Michele De Lucchi and Giancarlo Fassina for Artemide in Italy. Body structure is made with natural anodized aluminum. Diffuser is made with polished aluminum. Cables are stainless steel.

The Tolomeo lamp is fully adjustable and provides an infinite number of ways to direct the light. The Tolomeo lamp has therefore become one of the most popular desk lamps since it combines design with functionality. The aluminum diffuser of the Tolomeo lamp can swivel 360 degrees and easily turns with the cool-to-the-touch steel tip. The Tolomeo lamp has a fully adjustable, articulated arm body structure in extruded, brilliant, natural anodized aluminum finish. Joints and tension control knobs and mountings in polished die-cast aluminum. The cables are made in stainless steel, with a 4.25" diameter diffuser in stamped, anodized matte aluminum, tiltable and 360 degrees rotatable on lamp holder with incorporated on/off switch.

The Tolomeo lamp is part of the Artemide modern lighting classics collection. The Tolomeo lighting series was designed by Michele de Lucchi and Giancarlo Fassina for Artemide in 1987. The Tolomeo won the prestigious Compasso d'Oro Award for best design in 1989. The versatile Tolomeo lamps have become one of the world's most recognizable lamps. The Tolomeo lamp looks fantastic in any location. It can often be found in homes, office environments, hotels, libraries etc. It is a perfect and almost fully adjustable reading lamp, desk lamp or task lamp. We love the functionality of this modern lamp!
