Form literally meets function with the Tizio Desk Lamp. Designed by Richard Sapper in 1972, the Tizio is built with two counterweights, which allow the user to direct the light where it’s needed. The lamp adjusts with a pull or push of the hand and stays in place without having to tighten a knob or adjust a fastener. Its arms conduct electricity to the bulb, furthering the clean, simple look of Tizio by eliminating the need for extraneous wires. Sapper’s use of a halogen bulb represents a breakthrough in lighting design; until that point, halogens were rarely used outside of the automotive industry. A small reflector works with the halogen bulb to provide Tizio’s highly concentrated light. The Compasso d’Oro award winner in 1979, the Tizio is included in MoMA’s permanent collection. Bulb (included): halogen 50W/12V. UL Listed. Made in Italy.
