Someone who enjoys reading in bed would appreciate the glowing Pillow Light by Marleen Kurvers. The soft-looking sculptural object is made of distorted sheets of glass to take on the plushy appearance of a comfy cushion, and it's enhanced with the warm incandescence of an incorporated lightbulb.

Holding a book over your head may shade the shine of your bedside lamp, but this unique item radiates from behind you to keep each page illuminated. The switch is within easy reach, so you've no reason to get up to turn the light off and navigate back to bed in the dark.

Where the Pillow Light by Marleen Kurvers is a compelling piece of art, exploring the paradox of softness, sharpness, dullness and brightness, one may find it more suitable as a singular sculpture.
