Following the official launch of Lumio during Singapore Night Festival 2015, kapok at NDC presents a showcase of reinterpreted Mini Lumio+ book covers, designed by local talents.
The Lumio Mini+ is a compact, multi-functional lamp and battery pack for mobile phones that conceals itself in the form of a book. It opens to 360 degrees and comes with a removable magnetic spine cover and a lightning charger for mobile phones. Available in three different colours, grey with red spine, black with orange spine and navy blue with yellow spine, the handy book light can be personalised on the hardcover.
A call for submissions for artists and illustrators will see a shortlist of twelve illustrated Lumio Mini+ exhibited in store for Singapore Night Festival 2016 and the public will be invited to vote for the best cover. The top three winners stand to win up to $1,000 prize shopping credits and will be announced on August 27th, 2016.
The call for submission is open to everyone and the entry template can be downloaded online here. All entries are to be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org and the closing date is August 8th, 2016.
