We recently reported on the Lumio lamp
, an innovative LED lighting fixture that folds out of a portable and stylish wood hard-bound book. The Lumio
was designed by Max Gunawan
, a San Francisco-based designer with a penchant for multi-faceted, multi-functional products. To jumpstart the production of his Lumio lamp, Gunawan recently launched a Kickstarter
campaign. In just two weeks, Gunawan has already been met with success, pulling in over $330,000 — nearly six times his target goal. Just last week, we visited the designer at his studio where he spoke to us about the inspiration for his design, his efforts to bring his idea to market, and his future plans.
