Wästberg launched its premier collection in 2008 and although this newcomer appears to have come out of nowhere – nothing could be further from the truth. Its founder, Magnus Wästberg, was born into the lighting trade and had through experience gained an understanding for the need to fuse aesthetic sensibility with Swedish engineering mentality.
Today Wästberg has a growing catalogue developed in close collaboration with some of the World’s most renowned architects and designers, including David Chipperfield, Claesson Koivisto Rune, Ilse Crawford, Industrial Facility, James Irvine, Jonas Lindvall, Jean-Marie Massaud, Nendo, Inga Sempé, Maarten Van Severen and Dirk Winkel.
The lamps have been honoured with more than 50 awards for design excellence, including 9 Good Design Awards, 5 Reddot awards, Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany, Elle Interior Design Prize, the Swedish Design Award, Wallpaper Design Award and Designs of the Year. Wästberg is based in Helsingborg, in the southernmost region of Sweden, Skåne.
