Ile: Light Island by Inga Sempé

View all 11 Photos

Available this October, Ile, Wastberg designer Inga Sempé’s newest lamp features a matte sheen aluminum and steel, multi-purpose clamp light in a bright pastel 70’s inspired pallet. Reminiscent of bright parasols lightly blowing at the beach, or small orchestral cymbals, the dainty lamps appear elegant against any surface. Named Ile, the French word for island, the colors available in Sempé’s mobile clamp lamp sets the tone for island time relaxation. Designed for smooth movement and simple assembly, a spherical magnet attaches the pressed-iron canopy shade to a thin wiry pipe shaft. The flat circular bottom mimics and compliments the form of the circular pressed-iron shade, bringing a sense of balance and cohesion throughout the overall design. At your convenience, the flat base not only allows the lamp to easily clamp and mount a variety of flat surfaces, but also allows it to function as a regular free standing desk lamp. Interestingly, as the LED system is situated at the base of the lamp, the brimming shade may be used to reflect light in any direction without burning up. Overall, the modernistic thin wiry form and cymbal-esque shade favors lightness and harmony, bringing light, openness and expansion to any interior space.
