Concept

Once again Tolomeo is a testimonial of the uniqueness of Artemide: its design competence, technology, and care for man and the planet are simply conveyed through a product that, after 30 years, can still illuminate the future with the same impact. The iconic lamp comes in the floor, suspension, and hook version, with materials and finishes ideal for outdoor use. The family is now a more comprehensive system, capable to address indoor and outdoor, public and private needs. Tolomeo Mega Outdoor is produced in the larger size (diffuser diameter: 50 cm) to adjust to the perceptive proportions of broader and open spaces. The diffuser is coated with the Thuia fabric by Paola Lenti, a durable and washable plastic material that looks like natural jute. However, Tolomeo Mega Outdoor is designed for use without a diffuser, with the exposed opal glass diffusing unit covering the source and ensuring IP protection: in this version it looks like a traditional lamppost.
