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 and a touch dimmer with chrome finish is incorporated in the base. Castore 14 is only available with a halogen source with on/off switch located on the cord.
