Asterisco is a book stand light that brings a lot of style to the practical set up. Although the idea of combining two seemingly separate products into one is not a new idea, Cristina Ródenas and Adrián M. Almonacid of Valencian studio Cuatro Cuatros decided that the aesthetic of such a design could be elevated in a meaningful way.

Whether used for practical instruction while cooking or setting up furniture, or to read recreationally, the book stand light takes on a very traditional look. This is also reflected in the name. The designers share, "The Asterisco lamp takes its name from the asterisk symbol, which allows you to easily access your information, in notes or books." The minimalist design will fit into any home or office effortlessly.
