The Soffione table lamps from Artemide provide diffused halogen lighting. The diffuser, designed to recall the geometric structure of crystals, is made of white, handblown glass with a polished silk finish. The base is die-cast aluminum with a steel stem and is available in polished black or polished chrome. A dimmer switch is located on the cord. Two versions of the lamp are available: the first measures 22-3/16" tall and 9-1/16" wide and takes a 150W bulb; the second is 28-3/4" tall and 10-3/4" wide and takes a 250W bulb. Soffione was designed by Michele De Lucchi. artemide.us
