The idea of making lamps was born in the dark.
As a child, I always tried to improve the gas lamp that lit the room where I slept. It was the only source of light at night, because in the times of communism in Eastern Europe we had electricity for only 2 hours, from 18:00 to 20:00.
My favorite cartoon was “Gopo” it was about this character with the same name that lit and transformed the earth and moon. Every day it was played on TV for no more than 10 minutes from 18:50 to 19:00. A few minutes before I would stop from any activity, leave my friends and run home to watch the cartoon. I was so enthusiastic that everyone started calling me Gopo.
