Castore is a series of table, floor or pendant lights which offer diffused incandescent or halogen lighting.The spherical diffuser design is enhanced by a removable-fitting and tapering luminous stem, making a gentle transition from the strong diffuser light to the blind lamp structure area. Castore terra 35 and 42 have a touch band on the stem for the storage of the latest light intensity set-up The spherical diffuser features white hand-blown glass, with external etched finish, the stem in steel tubing, covered by a tapered sleeve in white translucent molded polycarbonate, allowing for partial soft diffusion of light from the diffuser. The base is in die-cast metal alloy with white powder coated finish. Available in two sizes.

Michele De Lucchi was born in 1951 in Ferrara and graduated in architecture in Florence. During the period of radical and experimental architecture he was a prominent figure in movements like Cavart, Alchymia and Memphis. De Lucchi has designed lamps and furniture for well known Italian and European companies. The firm's philosophy is rooted in the search for deep interaction between architectural thinking, industrial design and global communication.

The Artemide light has never been solely a function of seeing, or an opportunity for formal experimentation with lamps as objects. For more than forty years, Artemide has aimed to propose light as a companion to people, as a source of physical pleasure and mental comfort. Artemide has done so, with different work groups, searching through the whole design process, starting with a declaration of values - The human light. Beyond the definition, the human light is intelligent light. A light that knows it has to relate to people, accompanying them in their daily activities.
