Particularly obsessed with symmetry at the time, Marc conceived an element that pierced through the base and the top shade without seeming to touch the sides of the hole; on the top the ring of light shines down through it, whereas base has the look of a deep black hole.

“I liked the idea of a lamp looking like part of a black hole.”
