The Castore Table Lamp was designed by Huub Ubbens and Michele de Lucchi for the manufacturer Artemide.

Winner of Red Dot, Compasso d'Oro and Design Plus awards upon its release in 2004, the Castore Table Lamp is a fine example of de Lucchi's eye for elegant minimalism.

A sphere of milky, opalescent blown glass blends seamlessly into a downward-tapering stem of thermoplastic resin in the same monochrome neutral tone. The resulting shape echoes the simple, organic forms of nature.

Its serene looks are complemented by the gentle, diffuse light that it creates, subtly graduated where lamp meets base and fully controllable with a dimmer switch.
