“Tizio” – Artemide

Hey guys

It’s time to start talking about the most famous lamps in history: the so-called “evergreen” lamps.

I would like to tell you about a different lamp in each post.

Well… in these days one of the most important events in the field of interior design took place here in Milan: the “Salone del Mobile”. I went there just to have a look and I found some interesting things, obviously I have seen many peculiar lamps, which impressed me a lot. I want to show you this two flower-lamps in the photo below. They are wonderful!

I think they stopped being just the object with the only function of illuminate; they became real objects of design and beauty.

So if you need to furnish your new house pay attention to choose items that could be suitable to the context.

Ok, now let’s focus our attention to the first lamp I chose to talk about: its name is “Tizio”.

It was created by Richard Sapper in 1972 for “Artemide”, an international brand of lighting. “Tizio” is a desk lamp, which is still a status symbol of modern design.

If you think of a table lamp for an office this one is definitely one of the solutions, both for the elegance due to the line, absolutely modern, and for the practical use, indeed, thanks to the adjustable arm of the lamp, which can be manipulated into almost any position, the user can direct the light source exactly where it is needed most.

If we compare this object, created almost 40 years ago, to the traditional light table common during that period, it represented a revolutionary idea never seen before: it was very sophisticated for that time. Nowadays it could be well compared with the new and modern desk lamps with futuristic design: it is still current.
