Sempé w103 by Inga Sempé for Wästberg
Swedish company Wästberg present an LED desk lamp by French designer Inga Sempé at the Stockholm Furniture Fair. Called Sempé w103, it features a hand-spun aluminium shade supported by a thin steel tube, attached to a clamp or cast base. 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.
