Lumio Book Lamp is a beautiful, portable LED lamp disguised as a book – $160
It looks like an old book with wooden covers and it’s a thing of beauty even when closed. But when you open the book up there’s no story to read. Instead, you’re greeted by a bright, warm light as the book transforms into a stunning LED lamp.
Lumio is powered by a rechargeable battery so it can be used as a portable light source wherever you need it. It can be opened to form different shapes, and the included leather strap and the built-in magnet lets you use it in an unlimited number of situations, places and ways. As with many other products featured on this site, Lumio started as a Kickstarter project. It left the crowd funding phase about a year ago and the company now has an online store up and running. My own Lumio is currently making its way over the Atlantic Ocean and I can’t wait to start using it in my home.
