We honestly felt like Harry Potter when we discovered this wonderful wooden book in a small shop in Tokyo. When we opened it, the warm light of its pages flooded the room and a easeful feeling ran through our bodies. Immediately we started to research the background of this simply breathtaking product and discovered the story of LUMIO.
Lumio is the first product from a studio based in San Francisco, dedicated to helping people live large with less. The studio was founded by Max Gunawan and is focused on multi-functional, everyday objects that are simple, intuitive and beautiful. The Lumio brand creates innovative lighting systems with the simple goal of giving people the freedom to experience beautiful lighting wherever they are. Max Gunawan himself was born in Jakarta and spent 10 years as an architect before launching LUIMO. His work employs minimal and clean-line design, and centers around optimizing the use of small spaces. Lumio was brought to life with the help of a super successful Kickstarter campaign in 2013.
Back in Vienna we tested the LUMIO at our SUPERSENSE palace and discovered that this light is not just super good looking but also extremely powerful and incredibly versatile because of its smart built in magnetic system. Immediately we connected with Max and happily could convince him that our SUPERSENSE palace would be the perfect place to celebrate and present his amazing invention.
