Giancarlo Fassina was born in Milan, Italy. He obtained a degree in Architecture at the Politecnico University in Milan. He has worked on several projects involving Industrial Design and has created lighting for Artemide and other companies. He received a Compasso D'oro award for his Tolomeo Series of lamps which he designed together with Michelle de Lucchi.Michele de Lucchi
After the criticisms and the confirmations, the exaltation of design, and the conclusion of Memphis, Michele De Lucchi founded Produzione Privata, taking up the urge for change that was in the air at the turn of the '90s. Aware of the gap that had been created between design and production, he set out to rediscover the role of the architect as an intellectual who conceives and fulfills his projects with a more responsible approach to the quality and beauty of things. What had started as a small-scale craft-oriented production of experimental projects traced by his pencil very soon proved to be an opportunity to make objects using technologies on the margins of industrial production, but treated within the logic of series.

Artemide Tolomeo Double Pendant
Really cool architectural fixture
Josh from Helena, MT– Verified Buyer– Top 1000 Reviewer
Used this fixture in a clients house over a 78 freestanding tub and its awesome. First its bigger than you expect which is not a bad thing at all. Few recommendations when choosing this would be it is most definitely best over a table, island or a tub, with a 9' ceiling it gets a little low for spaces where you would walk under it at its highest height. Otherwise for the placement, the up and down adjustment is great, it will go really low. The arms are great quality and stay where you put them whether you use it as an uplight or a downlight. My client has commented that it is an amazing reading lamp for the tub. Install is made fairly easy by the way the bracket it built, it gives you a hook to hang it while getting it up there, notes are when adjusting the height be sure to unscrew all the parts and then twist, it will make it easier to not have the wires that run through the stem twisted when you install. All in all its a superb light like rest of the Tolomeo family and i would definitely use again.
