Design Icon - Artemide Tolomeo

22 July 2015 Permalink

The Artemide Tolomeo is a widely recognisable design created in 1986 by designers Michele De Lucchi and Giancarlo Fassina. It was awarded the prestigious Compasso d’Oro (golden compass) in 1989, this is a rare achievement as only 20 have been given out since its introduction in 1954.

The first design created in this widely ranged collection was the Tolomeo table lamp. It was designed to oppose the Memphis movement which was extremely popular at the time. The Memphis style was highly embellished and garish to some, so the Tolomeo was stripped back and re-invented concentrating on user’s needs. Which is why this lamp became such a well used light amongst creatives, it’s focused lighting and adjustable body / head makes it the perfect working companion. Artemide’s philosophy is ‘The human Light’, referring to their objective to re-design lighting to improve quality of life by illuminating spaces to the requirement of the people.

Almost three decades later and the Tolomeo lamp, as well as its entire range has become hugely popular. The lamp is a standard within many creative studios and offices, they also now feature heavily in magazines as they are now a design classic loved by many stylists. Because of these design enthusiasts, the Tolomeo range has made its way into the home working harmoniously with domestic interiors.
