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 Micro 28.75" H Table Lamp with Empire Shade
A great change from the tradional silver
Chang Duy from Saint-Laurent, QC– Verified Buyer
I have this one in black with matching base, it is very nice for a change vs the silver version we now see everywhere. The size is good and the quality is without fault. As a desk lamp, it is truly one of the best in this price range.
