You can't judge a Lumio by its cover. Lumio is a multi-functional LED lamp in the form of a book, bound in laser-cut wood. Crack it open and the "pages," made from Tyvek material, shine a bright ambient light. The concealed pages fold back 360 degrees.
San Francisco-based architect-turned-product designer Max Gunawan applied a penchant for origami and created this portable lamp that can be used practically anywhere—indoors by a bed or chair, outdoors on a table or even on the go. Magnets embedded in the cover allow the lightweight Lumio to cling to metal surfaces or it can be suspended from the enclosed leather hanging strap. Rechargeable for wireless use up to 8 hours via a custom orange micro-USB charger.
