Lili's perfect book nook

Our increasingly hectic lifestyles mean even the keenest bibliophiles are often forced to ration their reading. What many people need is a space dedicated to their books, which are ready and waiting to be picked up and read whenever the opportunity arises. LiliLite may just fulfill those requirements.


Billed as "the ultimate bedside lamp for readers," LiliLite combines a shelf, a lamp, and a bookmark in one cleverly designed unit. LiliLite is, first and foremost, a bookshelf, but its Z-shaped design adds two extra functions.

A small selection of your books (weighing up to 5 kg/11 lb) sit diagonally on the shelf, with the one you're actually reading sitting open across the second peak. This means LiliLite acts as a physical bookmark, keeping your place until you're ready to sit down and read once again. A lamp sits under your current book, providing a light source for your reading. A built-in sensor means this lamp is switched on when you remove the book from the shelf, switching off again when it's returned. A manual switch can be used to override this function.
