Luciferase means ‘carrier of light’ and is a reflection on flora and fauna growing in abysses, or at great depths. Even more so then lamps, they are light-producing creatures. The family’s soft exterior and velvety materials resemble the skin of an animal, contrasting with the interior which is all diaphanous and translucent textures showing thorns, hard protrusions, tongues, straps and filaments.
