Lamps – works of art
Lamps are objects that allow light to be diffused, and they come in many different forms. Indeed, before the invention of electricity, oil lamps were frequently used. Today, lamps are generally incandescent lamps, meaning that they use electrical energy to convert it into light energy. It is possible to imagine the whole range of lamps made with different materials. Depending on the style, lamps have been made to suit different interiors. One classic example is the Art Nouveau Tiffany lamp.

The Italian company Artemide, started by Ernesto Gismondi and Sergio Mazza, is one of the leaders in the high-end lamp market. It has the privilege of producing the Tolomeo, Éclisse and Pipe lamps.
