Lumio started as an exploration to design a modular home that can fold flat and fit into a compact car. During the design development, I quickly realize that it will take a lot of capital (that I don't have) to build working prototypes for the folding house. During this period, I've built a few folding architectural models that I carry around in my sketchbook.

When I decided to pivot and translate the concept into a folding lamp, it was a natural progression to use the form of the sketchbook as a way to package the lamp. That's how Lumio was born.

It's very simple and intuitive. The lamp automatically turns on and off as you open and close the cover. A flexible and durable spine design allows you to control brightness by adjusting the angle without a switch or button. Lumio eliminates the hassle of walking across the room to find a light switch.

Like a laptop computer, you can plug in Lumio and use it as a permanent fixture. The built-in battery can be re-charged through a power connector located discreetly on the spine of the book. It is as simple as "plug and play."

Lumio performs like a permanent light fixture with the added versatility of being portable. Fold Lumio into a compact book and take it with you as a lightweight portable lamp. At just one pound and with 8 hours of continuous life, Lumio provides beautiful lighting on the go and stows away compactly when unused.

With its cordless capability, magnetized cover and flexible design, Lumio gives you the freedom to use it in unexpected ways.

Each fixture is a module that can be arranged as part of a larger lighting configuration. Lumio is designed to inspire creativity; you can come up with your own sculptural installation or discover new uses in a space where common light fixtures can not reach.

Life is full of unexpected moments. Whether you're throwing an impromptu backyard party or reading a bedtime story to your kids, Lumio is there to help you!

Its cover is made of FSC certified wood (in 3 finishes) and the body of the lamp is made of 100% recyclable, water resistant Tyvek.
