Wästberg to launch collaboration with Inga Sempé

At the Stockholm Furniture Fair 2010, Wästberg will launch a lighting fixture developed in collaboration with French designer Inga Sempé.

This elementary lamp is meant to be as simple and solid as a nail or a push pin. As with traditional tool machine lighting, the mechanics are sturdy and long-lasting, with the aim of improving classical industrial elements: the clamp is inverted to offer a better way of using it. The lamp mixes solidity and lightness: a thin beam joins the two opposite pieces of the lamp: the heavy cast foot to a delicate shade. Its silhouette and its various positions bring to mind a small umbrella

    Beautiful shape, would love to have a field of them on a table. They would look just like a field of mushrooms.
