Stockholm 2013: Swedish lighting brand Wästberg has unveiled an installation of 30 lamps created from a modular set of parts by Japanese designers Nendo.

Over thirty different lights have been set up in a room at an old skating pavilion in Stockholm to demonstrate the range of possible configurations.

The W132 group of components includes a circular base, two poles of different lengths and three different shades.

The shades can be used without light bulbs to make containers, flipped over to create uplighting or hung from the ceiling as pendant lamps.

Long and short poles fit into the circular bases, shades and each other to create different stand heights that can be adjusted using circular keys.

Additional parts can be added, including table tops and a bird cage.

The installation is on display at the Skridskopaviljongen in Stockholm this week to coincide with the launch of a book about the collaboration.

Previous designs we've featured by the Japanese design studio include bowls so thin they quiver in the wind and glassware made from old Coca-Cola bottles.

Take a look at watches they've designed for Noon at Dezeen Watch Store here.

Our coverage of Stockholm Design Week so far includes glass bubbles that look like trees and chairs that can be dressed in different garments.

    Can they do no wrong? On another note, I love that this building is described as an ‘old skating pavilion’.
