w103 Sempé

Durable elegance

As simple and solid as a push pin, this versatile lamp combines weight and lightness in one balanced piece that continues to stand the test of time – in both usage and aesthetics. w103 Sempé has been refined and upgraded with new lighting and mechanical solutions as well as a new colour palette.

Sturdy and flexible

Inspired by traditional machine-tool lighting, w103 Sempé features sturdy, long-lasting mechanics, great versatility and beautiful light. The table version’s solid base provides heft and stability, elegantly counterbalanced by the delicate aluminium shade and the slender steel arm. With three different positioning angles and an adjustable shade, w103 Sempé is an adaptable lamp for any environment.

Linear constellation

In the pendant version, the cleat on the table lamp’s base has been placed on the top of the shade, creating a connection point for a linear constellation.

New stellar lighting technology

All three versions share the same new custom- developed, dimmable SMD LED engine – for beautiful, adaptable, high-performance light.

Base or clamp

w103 Sempé is available with a base or clamp, both featuring a cleat for winding up excess cable.

A palette of six new colours

The w103 Sempé pendant lamp offers a choice of six different colours: Traffic white, Poppy red, Light yellow, Grey brown, Slate blue and Jet black.

Full-spectrum LED

Designed to recreate the full, uninterrupted colour spectrum of sunlight, full-spectrum light has a rich, profound quality that is impossible to achieve with the limited spectrum of a standard LED. Full-spectrum light also offers superior colour rendering, making it an ideal choice for environments where correct colour perception is a vital aspect.
