Pure Talents Contest 2021 - The designers and their products

2. Prize - Elina from Dirk Vosding

Elina: a bookend that doubles as a table lamp or a reading light on the shelf.

A bookend as a table lamp or a reading light on the shelf

In our digital and hectic world, Elina shines a light on books again as an escape from thoughtlessly, hastily and anonymously posted fake news and rumours. Elina stands on the shelf like a classic book and performs its function as a bookend. But if it’s pulled out slowly, the disc inside begins to glow and sheds more and more light on the surrounding books. When pulled out completely, the illuminated circle can be adjusted to serve as a reading light.
