A re-introduction of an iconic Ettore Sottsass halogen torchiere, circa 1982. The Artemide Callimaco Floor Lamp was designed by Sottsass during his post-modern Memphis years--and it shows. The Callimaco features an adventuresome mix of big colors, shapes differently scaled, an industrial-grade dimmer switch and, in the middle of it all, the incongruous (but perhaps handy) polished chrome cabinet handle.

A re-introduction of an iconic Ettore Sottsass halogen torchiere, circa 1982. The Artemide Callimaco Floor Lamp was designed by Sottsass during his post-modern Memphis years--and it shows. The Callimaco features an adventuresome mix of big colors, shapes differently scaled, an industrial-grade dimmer switch and, in the middle of it all, the incongruous (but perhaps handy) polished chrome cabinet handle.

Since 1959, Artemide has created a wide array of modern table lamps, floor lamps, wall sconces and suspensions. Technologically advanced, and with styles ranging from clean and refined to sculptural and avant garde, many Artemide designs--especially the Tolomeo and Tizio--have become icons of contemporary lighting design.

How many lumens do I need?

VIEW CHART

Lumens

The amount of light that comes from a bulb, which has commonly been measured in watts. The more lumens, the brighter the bulb.

Wattage

A measurement of the power delivered to a component of an electric circuit (allowing a one-ampere current to flow through the component under the pressure of 1 volt.)

Bulb Shape

Bulb shapes are denoted with a letter, which describes the shape, and a number, which indicates the size. The number indicates the diameter of the light bulb at its widest part in eighths of an inch.

Base

The part of the bulb that connects to the fixture and its power supply. Bulb bases are denoted with the letter E, and a number which indicates the diameter of the bulb base at its widest part in millimeters.

Voltage

Indicates how much voltage a bulb can accept via the fixture it's installed in.

Light Color Temperature

The relative color from a light source, measured on the Kelvin temperature scale. Warm light is lower in color temperature (2700-3000 K) and cool, blue light is higher (5000 K).

Average Rated Life

The average amount time that a bulb is expected to last.

CRI

CRI = color rendering index. This number, which can go from 0 to 100, measures the ability of a light or bulb accurately renders colors. The higher the number, the better, with most quality bulbs these days measuring at least in the 80s.
