This is the classic Tolomeo desk lamp by Artemide, one of the premier makers of high-end lighting since the 1950s. The award-winning Tolomeo was designed in 1989, and almost instantly became an iconic example of Italian lighting design. Highly adjustable, it consists of a heavy base, two straight polished aluminum arm sections (each approximately 45 cm long), and a matte aluminum reflector head which can swivel 360°. Steel tension cables attached to springs hidden inside the arms complete the constant-tension structure.
This is an original Tolomeo desk task lamp, circa 1989. It is in very good condition, and though it is a highly specialized lamp, it takes a standard bulb.
