Design: The Lumio Book Lamp
A lamp that looks like a book or a book that looks like a lamp – either way you say it, it’s a downright wonderful idea. The Lumio book lamp was created in San Francisco by industrial designer Max Gunawan who got the inspiration from his fascination with origami designs. He saw it’s functional potential wanted to create a flexible lighting solution that adapts to the user’s needs.
On the outside, the Lumio is an elegant hardcover book bound in lasercut wood. Open it up and it magically transforms into a sculptural light illuminated by a high-performing LED. The inside ”pages” are pleated hard-wearing and water-resistant Tyvek, equally at home bedside, at a backyard barbeque, or on the go. Strong magnets imbedded within its covers allows it to be expanded 180 degrees to its fullest brightness, or mounted upon any magnetic surface. A leather hanging strap allows the lightweight Lumio to be suspended, offering ambient light akin to a lustrous paper lantern.
