Introducing the new multipurpose w182 Pastille light by Industrial Facility for Swedish lighting brand Wästberg
Swedish contemporary lighting company Wästberg is known for its illuminating collaborations with design luminaries from architects Claesson Koivisto Rune who created the ‘surprisingly small’ pendant w131 to French designer Inga Sempé who has created two lights for the brand, the multipurpose w153 Île and the simple pendant w103.
At Orgatec 2018, Cologne’s biennial workplace furniture fair, Wästberg is debuting two new families of lights: the w181 Linier, an ‘optical system’ that resembes a simple linear pendant by Berlin-based designer Dirk Winkel and the w182 Pastille – showcased in this playful film – by London-based design duo Sam Hecht and Kim Colin, aka Industrial Facility.
The simple light, a pure disc attached to a slender frame has been designed in three iterations (floor, desk and clampable versions) to adapt to a variety of spatial conditions, showcased in this playful film. Made of a high performance bio-polyamide, based on 60 per cent biologically sourced, recyclable material, w182 Pastille features a single LED, diffusing an ambient, dimmable light that softly illuminates surfaces. The disc element can be rotated up, down and around, making the lamp suitable for a multitude of domestic or office environments. Watch it in action.§
