The Atlas Lamp is a clever design piece that can add some dynamics to a standard household furnishing. While a full bookshelf is a pleasing sight for literature lovers, old books can give off a stuffy impression for those with an eye for interior design. The Atlas Lamp, designed by Georg Ahrstrom, is an easy way to keep all those books where they belong and still keep rooms feeling light and bright.
The lamp is a thin strip of LEDs about the same width and length as the spine of a standard softcover novel. Attached to a piece of brushed aluminum that runs perpendicular to the vertical light, along the base of a shelf, avid readers can add a few Atlas Lamps to their bookshelf and let the books support the light.
