This luminescent bedside accessory is designer Philip Hansen’s transformation of two old objects into one brand new, revolutionary idea called the book lamp. Unlike other book lamp designs circulating the web, this book lamp is self-sustainable. This means that the light source and switch is literally installed in the book.

The books used for this project are simply vintage books, combined with a standard bulb. But together, they create a charming invention for your beside. This lamp could be the new side table lamp and inspire new lighting fixtures for interior design companies.

This lamp is a classic example of making something from nothing, and the result is a very refreshing change from the norm. The best feature about this lamp is that it’s customizable. You can use any kind of book you’d like of any color. It’s completely yours to experiment with, allowing you to put your personality and taste on display.
