Light Reading Lamp, Sam Johnson, Thorsten Van Allen, GNR8, CFL, Compact Flourescent Reading lamp, low energy book lamp [1]

Sam Johnson’s Light Reading [2] is a low-energy compact fluorescent lamp ingeniously disguised as a book. It is meant to nestle in between other books on your bookshelf and remain invisible until illuminated: when turned off it blends right in with your other books, but switched on, it emits a bright white light which reveals its title. Made from a material called ‘Secret sign’ (by Perspex), the low-energy fluorescent fixture ensures that you won’t use much energy and the book lamp won’t ever overheat (and damage your other books). We love the way Light Reading [3] puts a clever new spin on the concept of reading lamp.

$149 from GNR8 [3]
