Unfortunately, books cannot survive without them, and readers are not aware that they cannot go on without them. That is why we decided to help the books and created a trap for readers as it seems that a trap is the only way for the book to end up in the hands of readers.” Marko Crnobrnja (Štap i Kanap studio) The trap on symbolic way presents the situation in which books are. Marko Crnobrnja (1978) is a Serbian sculptor who, with the purpose of redesigning ordinary items, formed Stap i kanap studio with actor Nebojsa Ilic. Their plan is to make ordinary items, even items that are thrown away, unusual and therefore more visible. Stap i kanap studio has created among others the Shower Lamp, which was the runner up at the Svetlobna gverila festival in 2009. The studio also created official Serbian souvenir Come to Play. Crnobrnja creates wooden toys and sculptures for kids to play with also.
