You can find it on page 46. Keep turning for a…

From a material perspective, the ‘Gatto’ light takes a leaf out of the book of George Nelson’s iconic ‘Bubble’ lamps, developed a decade earlier, using a similar spray-on web-like plastic material that was originally developed for mothballing American naval…
