Tizio Desk Lamp form literally meets function with the Tizio is built with two counterweights, which allow the user to direct the light where it’s needed. The lamp adjusts with a pull or push of the hand and stays in place without having to tighten a knob or adjust a fastener. Its arms conduct electricity to the bulb furthering the clean, simple look of Tizio by eliminating the need for extraneous wires. Sapper’s use of a halogen bulb represents a breakthrough in lighting design; until that point, halogens were rarely used outside of the automotive industry. A small reflector works with the halogen bulb to provide Tizio’s highly concentrated light. The Compasso d’Oro award winner in 1979, the Tizio is included in MoMA’s permanent collection. Bulb (included): halogen 50W/12V. UL Listed. Made in Italy.
