The Reading Lamp by Jun Yasumoto is aptly named, offering its user sufficient illumination to discern the text on the leaves of his paperback or hardcover. But as any old light fixture can boast this ability, what makes this object different is its capacity to accommodate an open book to serve as a convenient page saver.

The vaguely rectangular form of the table lamp is quite narrow and tapers further towards the top. Its horizontal edge is the perfect surface on which to rest the inner spine of your current read, keeping the sheets parted to where you left off in the story. When your novel is draped over the Reading Lamp by Jun Yasumoto, it remains off. The moment you remove your book, the illuminator switches on.
