Light Book is a sphere lamp and reading lamp. You can open and close Light Book like a real book and position it horizontal or vertical. Light Book is made of 5 acrylic pages, 5mm, with white led-lights. We can dim the light. The cover is made in black linen.

“The idea of Light Book arose some years ago. Since I was a child, I had always been surrounded and fascinated by books, because they could absorb me into another world. There are always laying some books next to me when I fall asleep or on my night table. A book is a strong, silent presence that invites you to open it to discover the mysteries inside… What then is more beautiful than a light in the dark coming from a door which opens on the Realm of Dreams?…That is how arose the idea of making a Light Book. I wanted to bring light into the books and to attract people to look inside.”

– designer Pascale De Backer (www.pascalina.be)
