Artemide presents the new Tolomeo Micro Christmas Edition

This Christmas, Artemide presents a new version of the Tolomeo Micro table lamp, with a copper finish obtained with anodic oxidation, which gives a brushed effect to this iconic lamp.

The new innovative oxidation production line allows reduction in consumption of water resources (thanks to a distiller for water re-circulation) and a very limited use of chemical products.

Originally launched in 1987 and designed by Michele De Lucchi with Giancarlo Fassina exclusively for Artemide, the Tolomeo was an immediate bestseller, consolidating a working relationship that continues to this day.

Inspired by traditional balanced arm lamps, the designers' main challenge was to combine an iconic and “domestic” shape with innovative technologies and materials, adapting those to a wide variety of uses and settings.

The Tolomeo is a well-known symbol of modern object, commonly seen in houses, offices and hotels as well as on the the desks of architects. It is also featured in movies and photo sets.

“I designed the Tolomeo in 1986. Perhaps I ought to say that I invented it, as in point of fact the idea for a new mechanism came before the lamp was created.” - Michele De Lucchi
