Today in my series of must have designer objet for the home, I showcase the Tizio Lamp.

This lamp was designed in 1972(!!!!) by Richard Sapper for Artemide, won the Compasso d’Oro industrial design award in 1979, and forms part of the collections at the Metropolitan Musem of Art, and the Museum of Modern Art.

What I love about it is:

  1. Simple design with no visible wires running up to the bulb.
  2. The two counterweights allow for the height and the direction of the light to be adjusted seamlessly.
  3. This lamp is complementary to so many styles – classic, contemporary, industrial, eclectiv, modern etc.


A real chameleon piece, and complementary to any room.
