Starlight is a collaboration between FieldGuide and Wästberg. In 2009, NASA launched their Kepler space observatory to look at the light form far off stars and interpret their flickering and pulsing to discover habitable planets. StarLight uses NASA data to allow people to repay the light that originated from stars light-years away, giving people a sense of connectedness to these stars, and encouraging them to dream of far-off worlds. Exhibition at Imperial College London, South Kensington Campus, Exhibition Road, SW7 2AZ. 16 –22 September. Fieldguide - an occasional collective and sometimes journal for people interested in design, technology and society and the intersections where they overlap, read more about FieldGuide here www.findplaymake.com

Made of sand-cast recycled aluminium, this smaller sized pendant, developed in collaboration with Swedish designers Claesson Koivisto Rune, gives a soft and friendly impression. Any imperfections of the metal are meant to be there. The textile cord adds further softness. The pendant comes in nine different colours.
The table lamp Lindvall w124t, developed in collaboration with Swedish designer Jonas Lindvall creates the same warmth as its predecessor, the Lindvall w124s pendant lamp, but with the convenience of being able to be placed anywhere in the room. Produced in a choice of copper, brass or painted steel, like w124s, the beauty of this table lamp lies in its simplicity.
Nendo w132 is developed in collaboration with Japanese Designer Nendo. The result of the collaboration is a lamp system. A pallet of parts that can be arranged in different configurations: the shade, pole and base. The height and form of the light can be easily changed by adding and rearranging the components. By attaching the wire to the shade, it becomes a pendant lamp. Adding a longer pole to the table lamp makes it a floor standing one. The shade is also available in three different shapes: a cone, sphere and a cylinder and three different colours: white, black and blue.
Claesson Koivisto Rune w126 is the most advanced floor standing lamp for direct and indirect light yet seen, developed in collaboration with Swedish designers Claesson Koivisto Rune. Energy efficient LED lighting technology is used at its maximum performance and quality. At 118 lm/W the w126 is an extraordinarily efficient source for ambient lighting in the office or in any room. Two powerful and separate LED light sources, one up and one down, with separate dimming allow you to set the light to any desired ambience. Read more
