Mr. Ed bookend

Here’s something special: a man who can multitask. Mr. Ed is a book stand and table-lamp at the same time. There’s a reason for this: amidst his impressive book collection, Roderick Vos realized that a little lamp between the books would help him see them better. It was the inspiration for Mr. Ed's bookend. A small light source, supported by two metal books serving as legs on both sides. Mr. Ed is not only suitable for the bookshelves; he is also great for a desk, reading table, or nightstand.


Mr. Ed, the illuminated book stand, is made of mold cast aluminum, finished with a black coating. This bookend with lighting has a height of 21 centimeters and a width of 18.2 centimeters. With a depth of 17 centimeters, it fits into every library and onto any bookshelf. The bottom is equipped with protective felt. Good to know: Mr. Ed has a 150-centimeter cable. Mr. Ed can be used with lamps up to 40 watts, one of which is included with the purchase. Both designed and manufactured in the Netherlands.

Functionals and Roderick Vos

The mission of Functionals is to develop beautiful, functional, and timeless designs. Functionals work with designers with a distinctive perspective, bold aesthetics, and dedication to craftsmanship. Functionals like elegant simplicity rather than ephemeral trends. The signature of the work of Roderick Vos is perfectly in line with the vision that Functionals hold. It is therefore not surprising that the collaboration has already led to a series of designs, including the Bonsai and Paxton candleholder and Mr. Ed.
