This fantastic table lamp is similar in style and elegance to the other products in the Tolomeo range. With sophisticated and structural design, this lamp looks incredible in the modern home. It uses very similar engineering processes as the other wall-mounted lamps such as the sconce, the clip spot and the spotlight as they all provide excellent functionality as well as being incredibly beautiful in design. The lamp itself solves a plethora of common problems as its design and construction allows the light to be moved and manoeuvred to meet lighting requirements.
As with the other lights in the Tolomeo range, the table lamp helps to minimise the need for lots of static light sources as it has been designed in such a way that it can provide light from different angles. Designers Michele De Lucchi and Giancarlo Fassina from the Artemide group have created this addition to be placed upon a desk or bedside table to act as a more accessible and moveable light source. De Lucchi and Fassina are renowned for their contribution in the modern lighting world, and have a very strong ethos that allows them to design and engineer functional and creative lighting designs. The Tolomeo range primarily focuses on flexibility and usability, making sure that the owners can use the light in as many ways as possible. This determination was acknowledged in 1989 when they received the Compasso d’Oro award for excellence in engineering and performance based on the design of the Tolomeo range. Since then, the designers have been working for Artemide to create a wide array of modern table lamps, floor lamps, wall sconce’s and suspensions. The Tolomeo range has become an icon of contemporary lighting design and really shows off the intelligence and creativity of the designers.
The Tolomeo table lamp has been created using natural anodized aluminium and can come in another two options of white or black. All the finishes including the joints, tension controls and mountings are polished in die-cast aluminium and the tension cables have been made from steel for strength and durability. The 6 inch diameter diffuser is made from stamped anodized matte aluminium and has a very useful tilt function as well as 360 degree rotation on the lamp holder. The lamp itself features a fully adjustable, articulated arm structure that allows the lamp to be moved and positioned where necessary. This gives maximum control of the light flow and can provide intense light or ambient light, depending on what is needed.
This lamp with look fantastic in many different styles of décor, from the more modern, sleek design to the futuristic and industrial looking rooms. The table lamp is a great addition to any office or study space as the articulated arm can be manoeuvred in lots of ways to provide a huge number of different light effects. Alongside other Tolomeo products, this lamp will fit in very nicely and will help to complete the overall look of a room.
