“Passa Cabos” is a cute cork lamp made by portuguese designer André Valério and produced by Ervilha Criativa. Valério says: “This project aims to explore the approach of objects and animals to humans in the stories of everyday. I found a very interesting story about a specific species – in some countries called ferrets – [that] were trained to pass electrical cables inside ducts. This lamp tells this story.” The lamp is made with Portuguese cork, it uses a low-energy E14/11W light bulb, and it comes complete with a natural linen cord. It’s currently available for purchase from The CorkWay Store
