Lumio Book Lamp
Lumio is intriguing even before you realize the secret it holds. Its clean-lined laser-cut wood cover takes the back seat when the book is opened, illuminating the LEDs and setting the setting the Tyvec pages aglow. This multifunctional lamp can lay flat on a table like an open book, or with the magnets included it can be expanded 180 degrees or mounted upon any magnetic surface. It also comes with a leather strap, allowing Lumio to be hung like a paper lantern. The rechargeable battery provides wireless power for up to 8 hours. This is truly a go-anywhere lamp. Lumio was made possible by the support of 5,276 backers on Kickstarter
