The Artemide Story
In Milan, 1960, Ernesto Gismondi and Sergio Mazza founded Artemide, naming their new lighting company after Artemis, the Greek goddess of the moon. Thus inspired, many Artemide designs are distinctly lunar...round and white, with an ethereal all-around glow.Read More
But it is the tremendous success of their high-tech contemporary task lamps, like the Tizio in 1972 and the Tolomeo in 1987, that truly secured Artemide's reputation as a leader in innovative contemporary Italian lighting design.
Why We Love Artemide Lighting
Artemide's high concept, high fashion lights truly represent contemporary design. Artemide lighting pieces offer a certain presence to rooms, not just blending into the background but becoming part of the room's character. And 80% of the lights use energy-efficient fluorescent or LED lamping, making the company a leader when it comes to ecological practices. The fixtures are built to outlast fashion trends and remain relevant in today's ever-evolving, technologically advanced culture.
Fun Facts About Artemide
The Artemide Tolomeo Task Lamp is so popular in television shows and movies, there are just too many to name. Anytime you notice a stylish contemporary desk lamp, there's a good chance it is part of the Tolomeo collection.
Noteworthy Lighting from Artemide
The Artemide Tolomeo is one of the most popular contemporary task lamps to date. With its iconic flared shade and articulating arms, the Tolomeo line has grown from the original Tolomeo Table Lamp to encompass every type of fixture, from the petite Tolomeo Clip Spot to the oversized Tolomeo Mega (Floor Lamp, Wall Light, Suspension and with Table Clamp). Or consider the Artemide Logico collection from Michele De Lucchi and Gerhard Reichert. Logico includes stunning ceiling suspensions, flushmounts and portable lamps.
