A display of aesthetic and functional balance, Tizio remains a modern design marvel. Introduced in 1972, the lamp is built with two counterweights allowing the user to direct the light at will. The lamp adjusts with a pull or push of the hand and stays in place as set.

Eliminating the need for extraneous wires and enhancing a clean aesthetic, Tizio’s arms conduct electricity to the bulb which was an early introduction of halogen to an industry outside of automotive.

A small reflector works with the light source to provide highly concentrated light. A multiple award-winner, Tizio is included in MoMA’s permanent collection, amongst others.
