At this year’s Stockholm Design Week, Wästberg presented an update of David Chipperfield’s luminaire “w102,” which now has an extended family.
w163 Lampyre is made of two opaline glass parts: a cylindrical base sup- porting a conic shade, emitting a calming light from base to top. The light can be adjusted from very bright to a phantomatic halo, with the dimmer. Lampyre is the french name for glow-worm, which can be linked to the very natural aspect of this lamp.
The w163 Lampyre comes in two sizes. The large one is ideal as a solitary
piece and will enlighten any space with softness. The smaller one will do
very well on a shelf or – following the Swedish warm habit – in a window to
shine a friendly light to both the streets and in the home.
