Books and Art: Lumio

Since we're keen on presenting you the latest developments regarding technology, art, and the literary works of our days, we've decided to create a special category dealing with Books and Art. The first showcase in the category is Lumio.

What's Lumio?


The product per se was launched back in 2013 when a Kickstarter campaign was created and managed to raise more than $570,000. Lumio is, in fact, a portable and flexible lamp that can be folded into a single compact book. Sure, it's not a book or even an e-book reader, but it will do wonders when it comes to reading anything on a dark evening or night. Plus, it's won a lot of prizes in terms of innovative product design, and it's been the main cause of a fight between investors.

The cheapest Lumio lamp costs around $190, which might be a too high price point for a regular customer. However, book aficionados will undoubtedly have a peek at its features and design, in spite of it being a little too pricey for the budgets of regular bookworms. The Walnut Lumio lamp looks like a hardcover book. Probably the neatest thing about this product is that it can open up to 360 degrees.

If you don't need that much light when you're doing your reading before bedtime, you might want to check out the Mini Lumio+, which costs just $125. The lamp comes with all the features and perks of the full-size alternative, it's just more compact and easier to take on the road.

Finally, if you're very picky about your design or artsy items, you can customize your own Lumio, as the end-product will be available in the color, size and fabric of your choice. In addition, if you're buying your Lumios for your employees, you may even want to customize it with the logo of your brand.

All in all, this looks like a pretty revolutionary reading lamp that's worth having a look at. You just have to ask yourself whether or not your budget can afford spending over one hundred dollars on a lamp instead of paying for actual books or ebooks. After all, there are cheaper alternatives to Lumio, such as Prudance, which costs less than one hundred and fifty dollars for the full-size version.
