Design by Michele De Lucchi, Giancarlo Fassina.
By Artemide.

In 1989, when the Tolomeo table/task was given the Compasso d'Oro award for Italian industrial design it was credited with having achieved the perfect marriage between design and engineering that works together in total "sync" to materialize an idea and create the perfect object for industrial production. Since then, the Tolomeo's award-winning design, engineering and performance features have been further refined in a complete series of models for table, floor, wall, track and suspension application.

The Tolomeo Wall Spot Light features a high polished die-cast aluminum body with a fully adjustable, rotatable, and tiltable diffuser in matte anodized aluminum. Hard wired only. The on/off switch is incorporated into the lampholder.

Michele de Lucchi

Born in 1951 in Ferrara, Italy, Michele De Lucchi studied in Padua and Florence, graduating with his architectural degree in 1975. A prominent symbol in experimental architecture, Michele De Lucchi was well known in the Cavart, Alchymia and Memphis movements. Not only has he designed lighting fixtures and furniture for the most prominent producers in Europe, he has developed many theories of the evolution of the workplace, and accomplished "experimental products" for Compaq Computers, Philips, Siemens and Vitra.

In 1973 Michele De Lucchi partnered with other designers and architects to create Cavert, which was considered a radical design group during that time. Kartell discovered his artistry in 1978 and hired him in Milan to design for Centrokappa. He later met up with Ettore Sottsass and joined the Studio Alchimia designers. Between his many creations he became a design consultant for Olivetti in 1979. In 1990 Michele De Lucchi founded a small lighting company, Produzione Privata, to produce lighting that could disregard the requirements of mass production and be made by craftsmen using traditional techniques.

Can the Tolomeo wall spot light be mounted to the ceiling?

Asked by: Eileen
Hi there! This is designed as a wall light only. If you really love the Tolomeo line, you may want to consider the Fortebraccio Wall or Ceiling Light (http://www.ylighting.com/lpn-fortebraccio-cw.html ) with a similar look and made for use on the wall or ceiling. Feel free to give us a call anytime at 866.842.6209 and we are more than happy to go over some options with you. Thanks for reaching out to us! Stephanie, YLighting Customer Service

Can these be used in a bathroom?

Asked by: rdelgado
Hello, and thanks for your question. The Tolomeo Wall Spot Light is not rated for damp locations. For a bath light, you will need a fixture that is rated as "damp" to accommodate any condensation. Additionally, outdoor fixtures are listed as "wet" rated and can be exposed to direct contact with rain or the elements. Please let us know if you have any further questions or need assistance with your product choices. Brian - YLighting Customer Support 866-842-6209

What is the exact spec for the LED lamp I would need for this light?

Asked by: jhevenstone
Hi there! This uses a 75W max 120V E26(medium base) A19 incandescent, or compatible compact fluorescent, or LED lamp. The key to finding a compatible LED is to make sure the voltage and base match. With very few specialty options, we do not sell bulbs alone for any of our fixtures. We refer our clients to bulb-only retailers like 1000bulbs.com, bulbs.com, or bulbman.com to order replacement bulbs. We ourselves refer to these sites all the time to compare bulb options, and you can search by bulb type, base, and even incandescent equivalent wattage. Thanks for reaching out. Please feel free to contact us anytime at 866.842.6209 with any further questions about this product, or to follow up with anything else. We're here to help! Stephanie, YLighting Team

Hi, I really like the Tolomeo classic wall spot light. They will be mounted above built in book shelves, too high for me to reach a switch to turn on and off. If the light was left in the on position could I use a wall switch to turn the light on and off?

Asked by: Pattyl
Hi there - great application idea for this lamp! You can hardwire this to a wall switch. If you have any further questions, please feel free to give us a call anytime at 866.842.6209 to speak to a Product Specialist directly. We're here to help! Stephanie, YLighting Team
