Tolomeo Outdoor Lantern Suspension


Design by Giancarlo Fassina and Michele De Lucchi
Diffuser coated with a durable and washable plastic material
Made by Artemide

The Tolomeo family has expanded to include the Tolomeo Outdoor Lantern Suspension. The light source is enclosed in a diffusing cap fitted inside a transparent IP65 plastic unit that recalls old lampposts. The structural elements of Tolomeo were strengthened and consolidated to resist to the increased stress. The family is also enriched with a shade to adapt the lamp for use on terraces or in domestic outdoor locations. The Tolomeo Outdoor Lantern Suspension was produced in a larger size to adjust to the perceptive proportions of broader and open spaces. The diffuser is coated with Thuia fabric, a durable and washable plastic material that looks like natural jute. Tolomeo Outdoor Lantern Suspension 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.

Artemide has a 3-word design philosophy, "the human light," that has guided them since their 1960 start in Milan, Italy. Artemides task lamps--like the Tizio (1972) and the Tolomeo (1987)--are long-standing icons of modern Italian lighting. Working with an exceptional, evolving group of designers and architects, Artemide lighting has been able to broadly innovate with high tech materials, organic forms and advanced LED technology.
