This luminaire offers great flexibility and mobility on account of the spring balance system with its joints and fixations made from polished aluminium as well as cables on guiding wheels. The spring system was first used in the 1930s for the famous "Anglepoise" lamp with the objective of obtaining a higher degree of mobility.
This functional luminaire is delivered with a base from polished aluminium. Please note that you can easily transform this luminaire into a wall lamp or lamp with clamp or fixed to the desk. For this purpose, you only need to purchase the required support.
This version of the celebrated design classic provides an optimal direct and partly scattered reading light and light for working. This lamp can be operated by means of a black switch located at the lamp head.
The Tolomeo was first presented to the public in 1987 on occasion of the famous light trade fair "Euroluce" in Italy and was immediately crowned with success. This success was confirmed again in 1989, when the two designers Michele De Lucchi, Giancarlo Fassina were awarded the Compasso d'Oro. To this day this lamp is a bestseller that is continuously developed further and is available in a growing number of versions.
