W182 Pastille Floor lamp Design Sam Hecht and Kim Colin by Wastberg
The W182 Pastille floor lamp is designed by Sam Hecht and Kim Colin for the Swedish lighting brand Wästberg. It is a slim and dimmable reading lamp that for the most part is made from a bio polyamide from the Castor plant. It is a strong and light organic and recyclable material. The W182 pastille creates a remarkable spread of light that is warm and dimmable all from a single LED rather than an array. It is achieved by reaching a state of equilibrium between its single light source, a large reflector and large diffuser. The result is a new kind of simplicity where the diffuser itself is as malleable with the hand as any other part of the lamp. At the top of its vertical pole is a control button and dimmer. The W182 Pastille floor lamp is available in two heights; 88 cm or 110 cm high and four colours, oxide red, olive green, off white or graphite black. The Pastille lamp can be used as a reading light or to light an object or wall.
The light source for the W182 Pastille Floor lamp is a dimmable 6 Watt LED light source with a light output corresponding to the light output of a 60 Watt conventional light bulb. The color of the light is 2700 K, what we experience as warm white light.
