w221 Medium pendant – specifically tailored to situations where its predecessors are too large or too small by Claesson Koivisto Rune – Wästberg

With their starkly reduced silhouettes, exaggerated dimensions and beautiful light, the w151 Extra large pendant and w201 Extra small pendant never fail to impress. Now, the scope of these elemental, archetypal conical forms is further broadened with the addition of w221 Medium pendant – specifically tailored to situations where its predecessors are too large or too small.

Developed in collaboration with Claesson Koivisto Rune.

In honour of the launch of the new w221 Medium pendant, Wästberg in cooperation with Claesson Koivisto Rune invites you to a pop-up exhibition at Linnégatan 4 during Stockholm Design Week.

The w221 Medium pendant was developed specifically for settings in which its predecessors, the w151 Extra large pendant and w201 Extra small pendant, seemed either too large or too small in terms of design and lighting range. Whether the new model is hovering over a dining room table or a conference room table, it offers the same balanced geometry, lightness and precision as its predecessors. The w221 Medium pendant may be slightly less striking than its predecessors, but it’s far from ordinary. Its natural, self-assured design provides a distinctive aesthetic, both in the office and at home.

The austerely clean lines of the w221 Medium pendant are mirrored by its light. A high-quality SMD LED solution is employed to create an even spread of dimmable, warm white light without being overpowering. Together, this family of three turned-aluminium lamps enables a wide variety of creative arrangements, formal or playful, symmetrical or dynamic, but always with integrity and style.

Claesson Koivisto Rune has worked closely with Wästberg since the company’s founding. Among their joint development collaborations, one that particularly stands out is the w151 Extra large pendant series, and its follow-up, the w201 Extra small pendant series, notable not only for their geometric purity but their scale – their very size. Today the family gains a new member, the w221 Medium pendant.

“The paradigm shift in lighting brought about by LED technology has opened up new possibilities to design lighting fixtures in dialogue with the room, without being limited by clumsy older technology” says Mårten Claesson of Claesson Koivisto Rune.

The pop-up exhibition at Linnégatan 4 during Stockholm Design Week opens on 5 September and is open Monday to Friday, 10–17, and Saturday, 10 September, 11–16.

 

w221 Medium pendant

All-round but by no means ordinary

With their starkly reduced silhouettes, exaggerated dimensions and beautiful light, the w151 Extra large pendant and w201 Extra small pendant never fail to impress. Now, the scope of these elemental, archetypal conical forms is further broadened with the addition of w221 Medium pendant – specifically tailored to situations where its predecessors are too large or too small. Whether suspended above a dining area or a conference table, its perfectly balanced presence echoes the lightness and precision seen in its siblings. Carefully and expertly illuminating any space it finds itself in, w221 Medium pendant can be trusted to create a welcoming atmosphere and a heightened spatial experience.

All-round

While perhaps not as immediately eye-catching as its large and small counterparts, w221 Medium pendant is nevertheless quick to prove itself as a versatile pendant light. It effortlessly lends its distinctive aesthetics to a wide range of settings and situations, providing both office and home environments with well-defined, comfortable light.

 

Solo or in constellations

Each of the three cone variations – artfully crafted in spun aluminium – makes a bold, clear statement on its own. Together, they allow for all kinds of creative arrangements: strict or playful, symmetrical or dynamic, but always with integrity and poise.

 

Well-balanced light

The sleek purity of w221 Medium pendant is reflected in the light it produces: beautifully even, and effective without being overpowering. A high-quality SMD LED solution is used to create an even spread of dimmable, warm white light.
