At this year’s Stockholm Design Week, Wästberg presented an update of David Chipperfield’s luminaire “w102,” which now has an extended family.
w164 Alto is a new type of uplighter.
The pole houses a sophisticated 10.000 lumen, multidirectional, LED tech- nique, giving a very even and super-wide-angle light distribution. The top disc of the base is a large dimming wheel which also includes the switch.
The off-centre, lateral constellation of the cylindrical units brings to mind a brutalist, deconstructionist view on architecture. Alto shares these values to become the de nition of the attitude behind the concept.
