predominantly made from solid brass, the ‘chipperfield w102’ LED table lamp by architect david chipperfield for wästberg references an archetypal personal desk light for home or office use, and seeks to offer a fresh interpretation of the familiar on a domestic scale. showcased during the 2014 stockholm furniture fair, the intention was to create a simple form with a clear distinction between a base, a single arm and a lamp head; ‘chipperfield w102’ was designed without visible joints and minimal directional movement, compromising its primary function.
