MoMA Exclusive. Produced in a limited edition of 1,000 exclusively for MoMA Design Store, this Lumio Book Lamp features a boldly colored wood-grain pattern—a motif that Richard Woods, an artist in MoMA’s collection, is known for.
When shut Lumio masquerades as an elegant hardcover book bound in lasercut wood. When opened it magically transforms into a sculptural light illuminated by a high-performing LED. Lumio was born from San Francisco-based designer Max Gunawan's fascination with the functional potential of origami and his desire to create a flexible lighting solution that adapts to the user's needs. Lumio's minimalist compact form allows for maximum portability and since its diaphanous pleated interior is made of hard-wearing and water-resistant Tyvek this innovative lamp is equally at home bedside at a backyard barbeque or on the go.
The strong neodymium magnets imbedded within its covers allow this transformable light to be expanded 180 degrees to its fullest brightness or mounted upon any magnetic surface. The included leather hanging strap enables lightweight Lumio to be suspended offering ambient light akin to a lustrous paper lantern. A rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides wireless power for up to eight hours (rechargeable via micro-USB cord using a 2A or 3A adaptor). Brightness: 500 lumen. Light temperature: 2700K (warm white). Wipe clean with a damp cloth.
