Richard Sapper 1970s Tizio table lamp for Artemide

Tizio

Yes, it does look like an old executive desk toy, but this is actually a design classic from the 1970s – the Richard Sapper Tizio table lamp.

Designed by Sapper for Artemide in 1972, the aluminium lamp features an adjustable counterbalanced arm and head, the head featuring a halogen bulb powered by a 12v transformer – and the whole thing working without a single electrical cable internally. Clever stuff.

Quirky and cool – the Tizio can be yours again for £219.
