The Enlightenment

While netsurfing last week, I came across this lamp in the form of a book. If you are a book lover I think this could be THE thing in your bookshelf.

Not a heavy book, a light book! 'Inspired by bestseller such as the Bible, Koran and Thora, we designed an object for lighting and enlightment. A book as a light. A light as a book: The Enlightenment' says Studiomeiboom. Studiomeiboom has launched the 'Light up your world' project which plans to throw a new light on a world famous designs.

The Enlightenment is made of white plexiglas, 24 cm high, 17 cm wide and 8 cm deep and is supplied with a 9 watt energy-saving lamp. It costs 89 € with 10 % of the sales going to charity. Every purchase brings a bit more light!
