The Italian artist Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571-1610) is best known for his mastery in playing with the dramatic effects of light in his paintings. As one art historian famously said, Caravaggio put the "oscuro" in the chiaroscuro (the gradiation of light and shade in a painting as I learned in Art History class way back). The Danish designer Cecilia Manz designed and named one of her best-known designs, the Caravaggio light, after the Italian painter. The clean, modern lines of the lamp are on the other hand inspired by modern industrial-style trends. The light is producted by Lightyears.
