The floor lamp Tolomeo Micro Terra LED by Artemide gives an impression of lightness. The stem and the two long and slender adjustable arms of the floor lamp are made of lacquered aluminium. The head of the lamp made of lacquered aluminium can be oriented in any direction with the aid of a little stick. 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. The 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 matching aluminium base, on which the lighting body can rotate. This version of the celebrated design classic spends an optimal direct and partly scattered reading and task light. A little aperture on top of the conical metallic shade gives off a small light beam. This floor lamp can be operated by means of the black switch located at the electric cable.
The Tolomeo 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.
