Portable lamp: Lumio by Max Gunawan

Lumio was launched by Californian architect Max Gunawan, who also designed the expandable and portable lamp made from Tyvek and FSC certified wood. The Lumio resembles a hardback book with a wooden cover that folds out into a concertina lamp. Available in maple, cherry or walnut, the lamp has a core made up of high output LED lights that are powered by a rechargeable battery that lasts eight hours.

The Tyvek pages automatically light up when “opened” and get brighter as the wooden covers are pulled further apart. Once open, the lamp is held in position with a system of concealed magnets. The design is adaptable, and can therefore be used outdoors, indoors, on a table or as a pendant.
