Depending on whether you translate it from Italian or Latin, "Gio Noce" gives you either "Thursday walnut", or "homage at night", respectively speaking. Presumably, Brebbia intended the latter; first of all, it actually makes sense, and second of all, the "Gio" shape is
stated as being a Danish-inspired number - hence, homage. And of course, the high-gloss Noce finish is so dark that walnut would hardly suffice to describe its shade.
