Richard Sapper (born 1932 in Munich) is a German industrial designer. He received a Compasso d'Oro industrial design award in 1959. Sapper partnered with Italian designer Marco Zanuso and were hired in 1959 as consultants to Brionvega, an Italian company trying to produce stylish electronics that would compete with products manufactured in Japan and Germany. They designed a series of radios and televisions that became enduring icons of an aesthetic known as techno-functionalism. One of their more notable designs was the rounded, compact and portable Doney 14 (1962), the first television to feature completely transistorized construction. Using the aesthetic of sculptural minimalism, the pair designed the compact folding Grillo telephone for Siemens and Italtel in 1965. The Grillo was one of the first telephones to put the dial and the earpiece on the same unit, and today is a featured display at New York's Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).The Tizio series lamps are characterized by their orientable task lighting, and the Tizio Classic Lamp also features parallel head rotation. The Tizio Classic Floor Lamp is composed of the Classic Desk Lamp mounted on a steel cylindrical support, creating a stylish and versatile floor lamp. A contemporary fixture like the Tizio is a great way to bring a creative and funky look to your home.

Artemide Tizio Floor Lamp

I love my white Tizio with base! It looks like a modern piece of sculpture in MoMA. The base really helps me to save some desk space. Again, it's a great companion for working desk instead of living room ambient. The both level of switch are too focused on the small area so you don't want leave it on for the living/bedroom. I will definitely consider to have one in the office too.
