Booklight Lampshade Features Hundreds of Pages of Literature by

Designed by architect Anja Verdonk of Dutch Ginkgo Studio, the 'Booklight' is a paper lampshade made from upcycled books. Created from any type of print - ranging from comic strips to music notes to great american novels - the upcycled pages give way to a unique shade just for low-energy LED bulbs. This Booklight is a wonderful example of how recycled materials and modern design can work in harmony.

    excellent idea, beautifully configured and so practical… made from any kind of book/magazine, if it gets too dusty, compost it and make another one… how cool is that?!
