Kurk Desk Light
Kurk created by UK-based young designer Craig Foster, 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, no screws or glues to assemble.
Kurk is minimalist task light with a quirky touch. In place of the typical metal lampshade, it features a cork one in addition to other cork parts. While the general design of the lamp might be basic, that does not take away from its character. Instead, the cork gives the Kurk Desk Light a softer, curved appeal that will win over the hearts of many.
“A pared down design that doesn’t lose intergrity and demonstrates commercial thinking. We can see further development potential.” – Comments / BDC New Designer Awards
Kurk is a flat pack desk light that requires no screws or glues to assemble.
