Wästberg’s Sempé clamp lamp was named after its designer, the French Inga Sempé. Made of metal, the minimalist luminaire borrows its form from a push pin and, perhaps a little less obviously, from traditional machine tool lighting used in the metal industry.
The Sempé clamp table lamp looks simultaneously weighty and light both in terms of materials and aesthetics: the luminaire consists of a curved shade in aluminium and a metal arm that is slimmer at the bottom, as well as a sturdy base decorated with a cleat – the cord can be wrapped around it much like a boat’s rope. Both the arm and the shade can be adjusted to suit the space and purpose.
In 2023, Wästberg updated the w103 range with new lighting solutions as well as a new colour palette. This model is an older, discontinued version.
