Product news: diffused light gently glows from a cavity in the side of this ceramic lamp by designers Something of London and Verona for French brand Ligne Roset.
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.
The product is available in white with either a red or white cavity.
Something was founded by designers Daniel Debiasi and Federico Sandri.
Similar lamps on Dezeen include one held together with a silicone band by Benjamin Hubert, also for Ligne Roset, and another by Luca Nichetto, called Vader after the Star Wars character whose mask it resembles. See more stories about lamp design »
