Lumio: The Folding Book Lamp

Lumio The Folding Book Lamp

I was wondering around New York City yesterday and walked pass the MoMA Design Store on Spring Street and decided to drop in since it has been a while. Of course the first item I see when I walk in is this beautiful lamp that is shaped like a book with its pages in an accordion-like fashion. Lo and behold, I was staring at a new edition to the store, Lumio, The Book Lamp. Be sure to check out the video below to see all the different ways you can use your Lumio.

Named “Top 10 Most Innovative Crowdfunded Companies” by Entrepreneur magazine in 2013, Lumio was the first product from a studio dedicated to helping people live large with less, spearheaded by Max Gunawan. His work employs minimal and clean-line design that optimizes the use of small spaces, while also giving people the freedom to experience beautiful lighting wherever they are. Yes, that means it’s completely portable! It can also be transformed into multiple shapes – big enough to light a dinner party and small enough to take along with you.

Lumio combines laser-cut wood cover design with durable water-resistant Tyvek “pages” containing high-performing LEDs. The strong neodymium magnets imbedded within its covers allow this transformable light to be expanded 180 degrees to its fullest brightness, or mounted upon any magnetic surface. The included leather hanging strap enables lightweight Lumio to be suspended, offering ambient light akin to a lustrous paper lantern. It comes in three different colors, Walnut, Cherry and Maple and you can buy at the Lumio Shop for $160.
