In this series, I have explored different interesting geometric forms of book lights including a triangular book light, a rectangular book light and a bookmark book light.
Different Orientations of light on the pages of a books
type i: corner book light prototype development
Starting with a triangular solid corner piece that fits the corner of any book.
The surface of the longer edge is removed to help insert it in the corner of a book.
One of the shorter edges is removed in order for the corner piece to move along the length of the book.
A small incline in the top flap of the corner piece ensures a better light distribution across the page.
sketching and quick prototyping
final prototype - corner booklight
A stylish triangular booklight that fits the corner of any book.
type ii: longitudinal edge light design
This rectangular book light can be placed along the edges of a book light and can be slid up and down along the edge.
thought process and sketching
Can be fit along the longer edge of a book. It has a good light spread that illuminates the entire page of a book.
final prototype - longitudinal edge book light
type iii: bookmark booklight
This booklight is shaped like a bookmark with a long stem. It can easily be inserted between the pages of a book.
This book light is inspired by a book-mark. It has a long triangular flap that can be slid between the pages of a book.
