This lightweight lamp by French designer Léonard Kadid uses a book as a base.
Called Bookmark lamp, the object is made of a single piece of plywood, bent in two places.
Kadid has also designed a table inspired by molecular structures, with wooden poles branching out from the centre to form legs and supporting arms for the table surface, which is made of steel.
Here's some more information from the designer:
BOOKMARK LAMP - The bookmark lamp is a table lamp which use another book as a base. Baseless means material saving.
MOLECULE TABLE - Inspired from the Newman’s space molecule representation, the table is the result of a structural study about minimum, stability and nature optimum.
