The Tolomeo Mega Floor Lamp (2002) is a striking evolution of the iconic Tolomeo Desk Lamp. Using the same ingenious combination of engineering and design as the desktop version, the Mega has an articulating arm that can be positioned wherever more light is needed. Its lightweight parchment shade emits a warm, diffuse glow, creating a compelling contrast to its sleek aluminum frame. UL Listed. Bulb (not included): incandescent 150W/E26/G40.
Available with either a 14" or 17" parchment shade or 17" black fiber shade.
Aluminum handle on the shade stays cool to the touch for easy articulation.
