With her lighting design for Swedish company Wästberg, Parisian designer Inga Sempé recalled the hardware-store-bought clamp lamps in the French country house of her childhood. The result is the new w153 Île Lamp, a whimsical interpretation of the clamp lamp with the option for multiple uses as a wall sconce and standing table lamp. Here’s a closer look at the design and colors on offer.
