As an architect, Max Gunawan believes that a good design should not only be beautiful and functional, but should also be simple and intuitive to use. While he is inspired by modern forms, clean lines and designs with an unexpected twist, his state-of-art design, Lumio, is inspired by the idea of an illuminated book and designed to provide the ease of using portable lighting with the performance of a high-end permanent light fixture.
Lumio is a modern lamp that unfolds from a book. It has a minimalist yet poetic design aesthetic that blends laser cut wood cover with durable water resistant Tyvek “pages” containing high performing LED. Indoor or outdoor, wherever you want! Lumio is an elegant solution that provides you with beautiful and powerful lighting whenever you need it. Simply open the cover to turn it on, the further you open the cover the brighter it gets.
Lumio is compact and folds into 2.5cm thick book yet it provides 500 lumen of high output quality lighting. With less than 0.5 kg and 8 hours of powerful lighting means you can take it with you to light up any space.
Easily charge it via micro USB from your computer or USB charger. The interior body of the lamp is made from durable, water resistant and 100% recyclable DuPont™ Tyvek®. Natural FSC certified wood covers come in three finishes: blonde maple, warm cherry and dark walnut.
They are currently accepting pre-orders with an expected delivery date of October 2013. You can become one of the first to experience the many possibilities of Lumio via their official website!
