BOOKLAMPS by Atelier Bomdesign

The Dutch design shop Atelier Bomdesign features several products fabricated from recycled materials. By far, our favorite is the Booklamp (or Boeklampen, in the native tongue), a clever take on reading light- proving that books are for both learning AND lighting. Used books are beautifully re-crafted and shaped into shades that emit a soft glow. As they are handcrafted, the Booklamps are perhaps more art than everyday fixture, and are priced accordingly (200-400 euros).

    I would be careful making them yourself… they seem like a bit of a fire hazard, although im sure that has been thought about for retail sale!

    What a great find! Although, these are expensive pieces of art, it seems like something that you could build on your own… perhaps from your own recycled books!
