w153 Île: all-rounder with youthful design by Wästberg
The multifunctional light Île is a jewel with a simple and clear design, characterised by joyful colours and a simple handling. It serves as table lamp, wall lamp or clamp light to affix to the headboard or to the edge of the table: there is always a small spot left for Île.
The designer Inga Sempé found the inspiration for this charming multifunctional light in the French clamp lights that were popular during her childhood. They were characterised by a simple functional construction: a clamp and a moveable shade, with the aid of which the light could be directed at will.
w153 Île stays true to this principle, yet brings a new modern interpretation with a remarkably updated technology. The stem is equipped with a clamp that can also serve as base to be laid on the table or as a wall mounting. The shade is especially conveniently directable with the aid of the magnetic ball joint. Besides, the light source is not a standard incandescent lamp but an integrated LED lamp, which also makes this thin construction possible. The LED lamps are integrated in the base and direct their light upwards, where it is reflected back by the inner side of the shade. A slender stem is enough to connect the base and the shade.
Because of the thin stem and the flat shade topped with a funny tip, Île has the appearance of a sunshade - and provides an impression of lightness and freedom. Thanks to w153 Île, nearly any corner can turn into a comfortable reading corner illuminated with a pleasant light.
