"Natural light comes from the sky. Since electric light is artificial, it should come from the floor." Castiglioni therefore designed a luminous stone, a lamp that can be kicked around and even kept outdoors. Noce, meaning "walnut," is made of a two-part shell, in cast metal and safety glass, which contains two swiveling bulbs.
