In honor of the Compasso d'Oro's tenth anniversary, Ptolomeo has been outfitted with warm white LED lighting to highlight the furniture's volumes and create a more luxurious atmosphere.
Ptolomeo Luce combines the most famous characteristics of Original Ptolomeo with a working LED light mounted to the back. This unique Ptolomeo sculpture serves as both a lamp and a book shelf, allowing for the orderly display of books and the diffusion of warm light.
Like the original form Ptolomeo Luce is made up of a lacquered metal column, resting on a strong base, also made of metal, meant to give equilibrium to the entire structure.
When a column is filled with books, the little, overlapping shelves vanish. Ptolomeo Luce's ingenious back-lighting system heightens the impressive impression created by standing in front of a stack of books that may stand on their own and challenge your height.
Its simple, essential design makes it a great addition to any room, whether it's a bedroom, a living room nook, or a studio, and it comes in three different heights and six different combinations of finishes (just like Original Ptolomeo).
