A task lamp is a highly technical object. Rotation mechanism, arm reach, counter balance, degree of efficiency, safety... It must all be there. How to use it must be self-explanatory to anyone. Hiding all the mechanics and electronics left a no-nonsense design. This lamp almost designed itself. Arm, elbow, head. And light.
Wästberg’s lamps create intimate spheres and simply make people feel somewhat safer. Regardless of whether the lamps are in offices, hotel rooms or homes.
The Wästberg Philosophy may be summarized as follows: I. Decrease general lighting and use direct lighting. II. Direct lighting should have all the basic properties of task lighting, but a wider area of use. III. Direct lighting should include energy efficient light sources, minimal glare, flicker free light, plenty of light evenly distributed over a large surface, and the ability to adjust light intensity.
