Ludovica / Bookend and USB/battery lamp


Ludovica is a perfect light for those who love to read and keep in order their books with style. It consists of two independent parts: a painted aluminum frame and a removable luminous element in opaque white plastic.

“When Ludovica hold your books it emits a delicate and diffuse light, when extracted from the base, a beam of light follow you anywhere, lighting up your readings.”

Ludovica uses LED and has a battery with five hours of autonomy. It is powered by a USB cable, allowing light to be transported without wires.
