Artemide Tizio Table Lamp
Richard Sapper, 1972
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. LED version available as well as 3 sizes from mini to classic.
