Discover the LiliLite by Thijs Smeets
Award-winning designer comes up with the perfect combination between functional and cool. Say hi to LiliLite – the all in one solution for reading in bed.
Is it a bookshelf? Is it a reading light? Is it a bookmark? It is the solution for all the above: The LiliLite. Aside from looking adorable, its most unique feature is the responsive light switch: the sensor registers if an open book is placed on the peak. The light will switch on and off when you use LiliLite as a bookmark.
Dutch Designer Thijs Smeets designed the LiliLite. After a very successful Kickstarter campaign it is now an off the shelf product. Smeets came up with this multifunctional design when he and his book-loving girlfriend got frustrated with the old-fashioned night-stand. Bed lamp, glass of water, pile of books… There was always the chance of creating a mess.
LiliLite provides a next level solution: the product can be hung above your bed. It also works perfectly with e-readers or tablets. The shelf itself is made out of single piece of steam pressed plywood finished with an American oak veneer. A top shelf product that fits any bedroom style.
The perfect gift for your bookworm mother, a housewarming or as an encouragement for your kids to get them to read.
…or why not treat yourself?
LiliLite is sold via the webshop www.lililite.com for 149€ for one, or 249€ for two.
