Artemide Tizio

The Tizio lamp looks extraordinary because it is. When it was first designed in 1979 by Richard Sapper it completely rewrote the language of desk light design. It caused designers around the world to scratch their heads in wonder ‘What do we do now?’ They asked. With its two counterweights, parallel arms and matt finish the light was like some kind of kinetic sculpture. It is almost impossible to find a position for it where it does not look marvelous. It might not have been so dispiriting for the global design community if the light only looked good but due to a dislike of the untidiness of cables Sapper also reinvented the way it was powered using a 12 volt transformer in the swivel base and running the electricity through the frame so that there were no visible wires. With its adjustable head and two stage dimmable halogen or LED the Tizio is not only dazzling in its conception and construction but also its illumination.

Richard Sapper was born in 1932 in Munich, Germany and is considered one of the most influential designers of his generation. His products typically feature a combination of technical innovation, simplicity of form and an element of wit and surprise. He has received numerous international design awards and his products are part of the permanent collections at New York's MoMA, as well as London's V&A. In 1959 he partnered with architect and designer Marc Zanuso and they were hired as consultants to produce well-designed Italian products that would compete with Japanese and German ones. Together they designed a series consumer electronics that became enduring icons. In 1972, Sapper designed the Tizio lamp which remains one of the best-selling lamps ever produced. In 1980 Sapper was appointed principal industrial design consultant at IBM and began designing numerous portable computers. Sapper continues to oversee the ThinkPad brand to this day.
