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.
The Callimaco Floor Lamp is available with the following:
- Steel shade with painted polished Red
