At Artemide Lighting, the primary focus is on the form and function of the luminaires it manufactures. The company is renowned for its lighting designs and the high performance standard it maintains. This may be attributed to the fact that all of Artemide’s remarkable lighting solutions are designed by architects and designers who bring their creativity and technical know-how to the design process.
Artemide Lighting was founded in Milan, Italy in 1960 by Ernesto Gismondi and Sergio Mazza. It was Mazza who had designed the company’s very first lamp, the Alfa, a year earlier. It sets the tone for the innovative Modern Art style and functionality that has come to characterize Artemide’s vast collection of lighting products. In fact, the company enjoys international recognition for the luminaires it produces with several Modern Art museums showing Artemide pieces in their collections.
Among these are the 1972 Tizio Desk Lamp by German designer Richard Sapper and the 1986 Tolomeo Desk Lamp from Italian designers Michele De Lucchi and Giancarlo Fassina. Examples of these iconic lamps were selected to be part of the permanent collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Museum of Modern Art, both in New York City.
Other museums housing Artemide pieces include the Musée des Artes Décoratifs de Montreal, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and the Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna in Rome.
Artemide Lighting still manufactures the Tizio Lamp in a desk or table model and also has a Tizio Floor Lamp for customers who prefer that variation. The design of the Tizio Lamp stands out in any décor thanks to its two counterweights which make it easy to adjust the direction of the light to exactly where it is needed. Both models of the Tizio Lamp are available with either LED or halogen light sources.
The Artemide Tolomeo Lamp comes in a much wider selection than the Tizio. Customers can choose from the company’s Tolomeo suspension, wall and table lamps, as well as a number of outdoor models. Each features the distinctive head of the Tolomeo Lamp and many are designed with its iconic arm balancing system.
There are also several Artemide floor lamp models in the Tolomeo family of luminaires. Among them is the Tolomeo Mega Floor Lamp. The body of this lamp is made from extruded aluminum while the joints and knobs are fashioned from die-cast aluminum. Its tension cables are made of stainless steel and steel is also used for its weighted base. Persons looking to purchase the Tolomeo Mega Floor Lamp have three different light sources to choose from: LED, incandescent lamp, or compact fluorescent lamp (CFL).
