‘Kurk’ desk lamp by Craig Foster

Craig Foster, a young UK-based designer has recently realised this small, easy-to-assemble desk lamp called ‘Kurk’. Made of cork, the light was designed with sustainability with mind and it was awarded the second place at this year’s edition of the Lighting Association’s Student Lighting Design Awards.

More about the project:

 

‘Kurk is a flat pack desk light that requires no screws or glues to assemble. Focusing on the life cycle of the product, each part of Kurk can be recycled or reused individually when it is no longer needed as a light. The sustainability and visual properties of cork make Kurk a unique, environmentally friendly alternative to standard desk lights.’
