In 1987 – 30 years ago – the designer and architect Michele De Lucchi created a lighting icon for Artemide.
Today, the Tolomeo lamp is outstandingly successful across the globe. In architectural offices, in agencies, apartments and hotels, in the Museum of Modern Art in New York and on the desks of the world's greatest minds – everywhere where good lighting and style come together.
In July 2017, Artemide paid tribute to Tolomeo designer Michele De Lucchi with a retrospective in the Hamburg architectural practice of von Gerkan, Marg and Partners, which was well received by lovers of architecture and design.
This microsite allows us to look back on the successful retrospective – and to show you the wide range of lights and exhibits presented which bear impressive witness to the extraordinary creativity of Michele De Lucchi.
