Design Inga Sempé
T1: H31 x 24cm
T2: H50 x 38cm
Taking its name from the French word for glow-worm, w163 Lampyre consists entirely of soft, soothing light behind white mouth-blown opal glass. Even at its brightest, it is a pleasure to look at; dimmed down, it is perhaps at its most beautiful, glowing phantom-like from base to top.
w163 Lampyre consists of two parts – a base and a shade, made of carefully mouth-blown matte glass and combined into a single entity of soft, dimmable glow when lit.
With its gentle, reassuring light, w163 Lampyre provides a comforting and familiar touch to any interior – a modern-day fire.
The w163 Lampyre is available in two sizes, where the larger version makes an ideal solitary piece, bringing atmospheric, soft light to the corner of a room or a tabletop. The smaller version is the perfect detail for a bookshelf, nightstand or perhaps a window, where it can shine its friendly light down onto the evening streets.
