The first "Kran" desk lamp was born in my home back in 2012. It was of significant meaning for Paladim and me because it was the first of many to come. Many and better.

"Kran" number one, 2012

The first Kran desk lamp, 2012
A wire from an old lamp was used. Twine was entagled around it to hide the ugly white rubber of the cable cord. Used a GU10 socket. Really unstable and unbalanced... The photo was taken at home on the background of white wrapping paper. Not so good, but after reconsidering the structure there was the next version.

"Kran" the revised version, 2012
