Inspired by hand-held carbide lamps used by miners in the early twentieth century, Naica bounces light around the void to emit a soft flush of light from one long face.

The lamp's gently curving corners create a softened profile, which the designers say alludes to the form of a cavern, and the name Naica refers to a working mine located in Mexico.

A fabric-covered cable loops up through the top of the lamp to form a handle.

    It looks like a butter dish.

    Nice elegant design, whether it is similar or not.

    I think the more vertical one looks better and I get the feeling that it may function better. It will take up less real estate on your desk and if it is being used as a reading lamp, then the diffused light will shine farther across the desk
