New York, NY and online
Lighting that really = form + function. Most famous for their Tizio lamp that you have (undoubtedly) seen everywhere, we have bought countless numbers of our favorite, the Tolomeo, for clients and friends. If you are looking for stylish, functional and modern lighting with an Italian flair, Artemide is your first stop...You can see their full line at their shop on Greene Street or at their website - everything from the Tolomeo collection, to the Orbs (pictured) and the classic standing lamp, The Melampo. At full retail Artemide lighting is expensive, and their best work is architectural and cool. You won't find warm, fuzzy or even organic lighting here. You can also find many of their lamps at DWR.
