Lumio is as close to magic as we're ever going to get. This beautiful pop-up lamp blossoms open like a book, shining light from its pages to illuminate your every moment. The case is lightweight and the lamp attachable to any wall or surface. Lumio can be used for practically any night-time activity: reading, snacking or checking for monsters. Creator Max Gunawan has already raised his Kickstarter goal but there's still time to get involved. Illuminate your life with Lumio - because we won't have magic wands any time soon.
ADAPTABLE FORM & FUNCTION: You can transform Lumio into multiple shapes for many different functions. From your living room to the outdoors, Lumio is adaptable to your lighting needs as it changes throughout the day.
PORTABLE & UNEXPECTED DESIGN: Lumio is cordless and folds into a compact and lightweight book. You can easily take it with you wherever you go.
SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE IN A SMALL PACKAGE: It provides high output quality lighting equal to many large permanent light fixtures and lasts 8 hours on a full-charge. It folds into a compact book approx. 1" thick.
VERSATILE USE: Super strong magnets are built into its cover making it easy to mount Lumio on metal surfaces in many different configurations.
"Lumio started as an exploration to design a modular home that can fold flat and fit into a compact car. During the design development, I quickly realize that it will take a lot of capital to build working prototypes for the folding house. I built a few folding architectural models that I carry around in my sketchbook.
When I decided to pivot and translate the concept into a folding lamp, it was a natural progression to use the form of the sketchbook as a way to package the lamp. That's how Lumio was born."
"It's very simple and intuitive. The lamp automatically turns on and off as you open and close the cover. A flexible and durable spine design allows you to control brightness by adjusting the angle without a switch or button. Lumio eliminates the hassle of walking across the room to find a light switch. Like a laptop computer, you can plug in Lumio and use it as a permanent fixture. The built-in battery can be re-charged through a power connector located discreetly on the spine of the book. It is as simple as "plug and play."
"With its cordless capability, magnetized cover and flexible design, Lumio gives you the freedom to use it in unexpected ways.
Each fixture is a module that can be arranged as part of a larger lighting configuration. Lumio is designed to inspire creativity; you can come up with your own sculptural installation or discover new uses in a space where common light fixtures can not reach."
