Kok? - the penguin lamp

koko_penguin_lamp.jpg

I have a weakness for penguins and anything that depicts one. I think they are incredibly cute and interesting animals…and they make for great animation (see Madagascarand Happy Feet).

The penguin lamp above was designed by Gi? Colonna Romano for the Italian light manufacturer Slide Design, and was launched across Europe this past September. A percentage of the lamps' proceeds will go to the penguin foundation to help Little Penguins.

But Kok? is not just a lamp. There is another initiative called "Kok? Smart" whose purpose is to allow young artists around the world to express their creativity on one of the penguin shapes, with the goal of raising awareness of environmental protection. These unique pieces will be exhibited around Europe and afterwards auctioned during the Salone del Mobile in Milan.

So far I haven't found any information on where to purchase a Kok? lamp.
