Entry DescriptionLumo is a portable home lighting solution designed to brighten up night time routines. Many people need to finish various tasks at night, with anything from last-minute work to leisure; however, overhead lighting is often too harsh and stationery lights confine the user to a given workspace. Lumo's friendly form brings both portability and comfort to nighttime routines, giving you new possibilities to illuminate your life.
Lumo is composed of two parts, a charging base and the lamp. The base was modeled in yellow modeling foam and given a matte finish, but in production would be made of a plastic and have charging technology implemented. The lamp is 3D-printed and given the same matte finish as the base. Inside, there are built-in supports to hold the light source, which in this case is a USB-powered bulb for demonstration purposes.
