This No 3 Medusa Table Lamp is a Luc Gensollen design, and available at the Oxfordshire lighting specialist Cameron Peters. Gensollen set up his small shop in Paris six years ago, using translucent mother boards from vintage PCs as shades for table lamps, wall lights and chandeliers. Because mother boards built after the year 2000 are opaque, and vintage ones are hard to find, Luc Gesnollen now designs similar-styled panels himself in order to create his graphic designs.
