At The World of JSPR we do not only offer JSPR collections, but also brands and products that are almost as cool. And every now and then we put a big spotlight on one of those names.
Today it is up to Wästberg, a Swedish brand that was founded in 2008 by none other than Magnus Wästberg. Along with a range of other designers, he focuses mainly on lighting in the corporate sector. All collections by Wästberg have something familiar, but on the other hand, are innovative. This can be seen in the finish, material or by the design itself; And so he transforms ideas into successful products. His lamps won more than 50 awards, including 9 Good Design Awards and 5 Reddot Awards! This brand therefore certainly deserves a place at The World of JSPR.
The Lindvall collection includes thé table lamp that you can’t say no to. This copper table lamp catches the eye because of the seemingly simple but well thought-out design, the beautiful and warm color that fits in anywhere, combined with the playful green electrical wire that matches oh so well with the copper color. With its modest dimensions, this table lamp is applicable everywhere and ready to steal the show.
The Lindvall collection is designed by Jonas Lindvall for Wästberg. According to him, a good design must give you the feeling that you know it from somewhere but aren’t sure where from; a familiar feeling or even nostalgic. The Lindvall collection reminds him of the lamps he grew up with himself although he wanted to give the collection a little something extra: the circular folds in the shade, the material and the color palette. A successful collection that we just had to share with you.
Wästberg couldn’t have chosen a better name for this lighting collection than ”Extra Large Pendant”. This design is for the designlover with a little more space and the larger events or hospitality accomodations. The latest technology has made this collection possible since designers no longer have to depend on (small) light bulbs. LED light sources are processed in these lampshades, what makes them besides impressive also energy efficient and sustainable. Designer Claesson Koivisto Rune opted for this collection its own color combinations and therefore not every model is available in every color.
David Chipperfield designed this table lamp for Wästberg and calls it a fresh interpretation of a familiar product. The light – made out of quality brass – is functional and energy efficient, but also interior proof because of its beautiful appearance and warm, dimmable LED light. Moreover, smooth rotation is possible thanks to the special ball bearing construction between the base and the head.
Of course these are by far not the only collections by Wästberg; There’s more! The World of JSPR is an official dealer of Wästberg and that is why we are in the position to offer other products or collections by this label as well.
