made through the simple assembly of three modular parts: a shade (available in either cone, sphere or cylinder), post and stand, ‘nendo w132’ has the ability to transform into a variety of lighting fixtures. attaching a wire unit to the shade results in a pendant lamp, and affixing a longer pole to the table version, allows it to function as a floor stand– their height and form easily changed by adding and rearranging the components. the lamp covers themselves can be used either in the conventional way to diffuse light, or turned upside-down to act as a container for storing small personal items.


designed by nendo for wästberg, a company based in in helsingborg, skåne, sweden, the collection debuted in the form of ‘illuminated’, an installation showcasing the variations of the lighting objects, presented within the skeppesholmen hotel’s skridskopaviljongenduring the 2013 stockholm furniture fair.
