How is the holding pin connected to the USM table?
To connect the holding pin, you must first remove the cover plate from the table leg. To achieve this lay your USM Haller table on its side, take a broom handle and insert it into the base of the table leg and push through until the cover plate pops out. Then you can insert the holding pin and attach the Tolomeo.
What is the halogen lamp?
The bulb looks like a standard bulb, but contains a halogen capsule.
Can the lamp arm be ordered as a spare part?

A classic among desk lamps! Designed in 1987 by the Italian designers Michele de Lucchi and Giancarlo Fassi the Artemide Tolomeo Tavolo is a table lamp that one could assume must stand in the tradition of the Memphis Group. Not only Michele de Lucchi belonged to the founding members of the post-modern design movement, but the Tolomeo Tavolo arose in the same epoch. However, unlike the provocative conceptual designs of the Memphis Group, the Artemide Tolomeo lamp is a prime example of function-oriented and aesthetically pleasing design. A two-part adjustable arm and an adjustable head enable the variable alignment and mounting of the luminaire, thus making the Tolomeo Tavolo the ideal desk lamp. The arm is vertically adjustable and swivels, while the lamp head is adjustable in all directions. Stylistically, the Artemide Tolomeo presents a very balanced and timeless impression. The Tolomeo Tavolo is part of a whole lamp family designed by Michele de Lucchi and Giancarlo Fassi including a floor, wall and a ceiling light.
The simple design of the Tolomeo lamp doesn't follow naturally from the radical design background of its author. In contrast to the largely unknown Giancarlo Fassi, Michele De Lucchi work was influential for a whole generation. Born in Ferrara, Italy in 1951 Michele De Lucchi was already active as an architect and designer in his student days; notably as part of the radical design group Cavart in Padua, in the context of which he protested against the then prevalent design establishment. In 1980 he co-founded the Memphis Group along with contemporaries including Ettore Sottsass. The group argued against the then standard industry production practice and developed a new, partially disturbing form of language - quite different from his later design of Tolomeo Tavolo. After dissolution of the Memphis Group in 1989 Michele de Lucchi working on many lighting designs for Artemide and on various projects manufacturers including, for example, Bodum, Olivetti and Vitra.
The Tolomeo Tavolo is produced by the Italian manufacturer Artemide. The Tolomeo is made of aluminium and is available in either matt aluminium or with different colour anodizing. In the latter, a protective oxide layer is generated, i.e. it is not applied as an extra layer, but becomes the outer layer of the object. The joints of the Artemide Tolomeo are made from polished aluminium and work on a spring balance system. The Tolomeo table lamp comes with either a round foot base, a table clamp for mounting directly on the table or a USM retaining pin for attachment to USM Hallertable legs. Artemide products are produced in Italy, France, Hungary and the United States.
