The floor lamp Tolomeo Mega Terra by Artemide gives an impression of lightness. The stem and the two long and slender adjustable arms of the floor lamp are from polished aluminium. The head of the lamp from stabilized translucent and light parchment or from grey silk satin can be oriented in any direction with the aid of a little stick and comes in three sizes (32 cm, 36 cm or 42 cm of diameter). This luminaire offers great possibilities of flexibility and mobility on account of the system of spring balancing using joints and fixations from polished aluminium as well as cables on guiding wheels. This spring system was first used in the nineteen-thirtees for the famous "Anglepoise" lamp with the aim to achieve more mobility. This functional luminaire is delivered together with a polished aluminium base, on which the lighting body can rotate. The Tolomeo Mega Terra can be equipped with a simple switch or with a dimmer on the cable. This version of the celebrated design classic spends an optimal direct and partly scattered light.
Artemide Tolomeo Mega Terra is also available in a version with black or white structure and black or white shade. See further information within the product family.
The Tolemeo was first presented ot the public in 1987 on occasion of the famous light fair "Euroluce" in Italy and received an instant success. This success was confirmed again in 1989, when the two designers were awarded the Compasso d'Oro. To this day this lamp is a best-seller that is continuously developed and is available in a growing number of versions.
