The table lamp Tizio has become a symbol of functionality, representing a lifestyle in the name of design. Although it was created as a table lamp, it became a popular model among interior furnishings. 

Under the proposal of Ernesto Gismondi, co-founder of Artemide, Sapper designed a lamp that incorporated new technologies (the halogen lamp) with a flexible structure designed meticulous attention. The table lamp includes a counterweight system that holds in balance the arm holding the light, adjustable with a simple touch of a finger. The arm rotates at 360 degrees around the substantial base, and the small reflector can be oriented in any direction. 

It is produced in finished metal with a light coating in reinforced nylon and fiberglass; the lamp has invisible joints that do not include screws but are fixed thanks to a pressure mechanism. This way if the lamp falls, the attacks will not break up; instead, they may fall apart but will be easily assembled back together. 

Since 1972 until today, it is produced by Artemide
