Standing Papyrus Light

Designed by Jasper Startup (cool name right?) in '97). This one is on the verge of being in crunchy territory but it somehow skirts it. It achieves a modern feel despite being made entirely with natural materials. Made of papyrus (you know...that scroll stuff from asterix and obelix), bamboo and terracotta, it doesn't get much more biosphere than this. Not sure if these are for sale or merely prototypes.
