Python is a small lamp and table organiser, offering a new take on the traditional cork board. The name derives from the mythological serpent Python that Apollo slew using his bow and arrows. Python’s body is made of renewable and biodegradable cork, allowing the user to pin notes, messages, photographs and other memorabilia to the structure. The objects are illuminated whenever the light is turned on. The lamp can be placed in various rooms and settings, suitable for both home and office use. In serial production the lamp shade would be made out of cast aluminium or porcelain.
