Design Michele De Lucchi, 2003
Handblown glass, steel, metal
Made in Italy by Artemide

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, that makes a sweet transition from the strong diffuser light to the blind lamp structure area. Ceiling rose and stem in thermoplastic resin with a hand blown glass diffuser with external etched finish. Castore 14 is only available with a halogen source while other sizes are offered with either an incandescent, halogen or fluorescent light source. Mounts to standard electrical junction box.

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.
