Book Lamp, Literally

Designer Martin Konrad Gloecke has designed a book lamp that uses your own book as a lampshade—and functions as a bookmark.

Writes Gloecke on his website:

wall light. complete lamp by adding book as lamp shade. remove book for reading, change lamp by changing book, use as bookmark.

part of un-readymades series: inspires, encourages, and enables creativity, play, product interaction, and personal expression.

And if you like that, check out Gloecke’s “Booked” table—a set of legs that attach to your own book to form an end table.
