Lumio is a multi-purpose modern lamp that can be used almost anywhere… Lumio started as an exploration to design a modular home that can fold flat and fit into a compact car. During the design development, I quickly realize that it will take a lot of capital (that I don’t have) to build working prototypes for the folding house. During this period, I’ve built a few folding architectural models that I carry around in my sketchbook.
When I decided to pivot and translate the concept into a folding lamp, it was a natural progression to use the form of the sketchbook as a way to package the lamp. That’s how Lumio was born.
