My Tolomeo story

Frederik Frede

A real all-round talent

”I only really noticed the Tolomeo consciously when I was training to become a graphic designer in the 1990s in Cologne. It is very functional and integrates wonderfully into any workplace. That's why we in the firm own several of them and use them at our work stations.


As the creative director of Freunde von Freunden, an online lifestyle portal that is intended to inspire its readers and provide an authentic glimpse behind the scenes with interesting personalities, I also had to improvise with it quite dramatically once: We had a product shoot, but no spotlights... We were in a rush ... Then we took all the Tolomeos that we could find in the office and illuminated the whole setting – and the results were outstanding.”
