A pendant lamp is a very old concept. While Wästberg is a very forward thinking, high technological lighting manufacturer. So when designing a new pendant lamp for Wästberg you want to bridge past with present.

First, the w131 is small. Surprisingly small. Equipped with reflector halogen it gives good light. So the lamp is extremely versatile as to where to use.

Second, it is tactile and friendly. Sand-cast recycled aluminium is both beautiful and environmentally sound. Any imperfections of the metal are with purpose. The textile cord adds softness. We will use this lamp both at home and for contract.

    “Any imperfections of the metal are with purpose”. Wish I could say this about my architecture projects. :)
