french designer inga sempé has collaborated with swedish company wästberg on ‘sempé w103’, a table lamp presented at the stockholm furniture fair 2010, which runs from february 9th to 13th, 2010.

 

this elementary lamp is meant to be as simple and as solid as a nail or a push pin. following traditional tool machine lighting, its mechanics are sturdy and long-lasting, with the aim of wanting to improve classical industrial elements. for example, the base clamp of the lamp is inverted, providing a more functional way of using it. the lamp mixes a solidness with lightness with a thin, steel beam that joins the shade and the cast iron base or clamp of the lamp together – a contrasting heavy cast foot to a delicate shade. the silhouette and the various positions bring to mind the image of a small umbrella. each lamp has three positions which it can be adjusted to. it is illuminated by 8W LEDs, using the entire hand-spun aluminum shade as a reflector.
