w163 Lampyre


Wästberg presents w163 Lampyre, a table lamp developed in collaboration with Inga Sempé. The lamp will be shown during Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair 9-13 February.

w163 Lampyre is made of two opaline glass parts: a cylindrical base sup- porting a conic shade, emitting a calming light from base to top. The light can be adjusted from very bright to a phantomatic halo, with the dimmer. Lampyre is the french name for glow-worm, which can be linked to the very natural aspect of this lamp.

The w163 Lampyre comes in two sizes. The large one is ideal as a solitary piece and will enlighten any space with softness. The smaller one will do very well on a shelf or – following the Swedish warm habit – in a window to shine a friendly light to both the streets and in the home.


Wästberg launched its premier collection in 2008 and although this newco- mer appears to have come out of nowhere – nothing could be further from the truth. Its founder, Magnus Wästberg, was born into the lighting trade and had through experience gained an understanding for the need to fuse aesthetic sensibility with Swedish engineering mentality.

Today Wästberg has a growing catalogue developed in close collaboration with some of the World’s most renowned architects and designers. Inclu- ding David Chipperfield, Claesson Koivisto Rune, Ilse Crawford, James Irvine, Jonas Lindvall, Jean-Marie Massaud, Nendo, Inga Sempé, Maarten Van Severen, Sam Hecht & Kim Colin and Dirk Winkel. Only with designers like them could Wästberg’s ideas be turned into successful products.

The lamps have been honoured with more than 50 Awards and nominations for design excellence, including Good Design Awards, Reddot Awards, De- sign Award of the Federal Republic of Germany Wallpaper* Design Award, the Swedish Design Awards “ Design S ”, “ Guldägget ”, Elle Interiör De- sign Award, FORM +1 Award and London Design Museum’s “ Designs of the Year ” Award.

Wästberg is based in Helsingborg, in the southernmost region of Sweden, Skåne.
