Technologically edgy and shaped by love
17/09/2015 - The new lighting brand Watt a Lamp launched its brand new collection at Maison&Objet, Now! Design a Vivre, in Paris September 2015.
 
Watt a Lamp was borne out of a fascination of light! Its founder, Michael Waltersdorff, has 20 years’ experience in the industry, providing Watt a Lamp with a solid foundation of experience and know-how, which has been channelled into this edgy lighting brand. Watt a Lamp is equal parts technical enthusiasm and love of great design, as well as an unpretentious approach to durable lighting solutions that will follow you throughout your life.

“It has been a long-standing dream of mine to create a new lighting brand with a harmonious collection, created by skilled designers taking a playful and technologically sound approach to their work, and it is the ambition of Watt a Lamp to go global and remain relevant”, says Michael Waltersdorff.

For the brand’s first collection, he asked curators Rikke Hagen and Andreas Lund to nominate a team of designers and to ensure the coherence of the collection. Watt a Lamp has managed to gather quite a team to create the 11 types of lamps comprising its maiden collection: Lars Larsen/Kilo, Amanda Betz, Furnid, Francis Cayouette, Helling/Ludvik, Peter Johansen, Tom Stepp, Rikke Hagen and Andreas Lund.
 
The ADJUSTABLE pendants are designed by curators Rikke Hagen and Andreas Lund. The lamps are easily recognisable and their untraditional colours will definitely put a smile on your face. The individual colour schemes are used for the cords as well as the ceiling mounts making the lamps even easier on the eyes.

STRETCH is half sculpture and half practical lighting solution. The airy lamellas invite you to look inside the lamp’s construction, resulting in a play of light and shade and a pattern as minimalist as it is complex. The lamp is designed by Amanda Betz, who is well known for applying her sculptural approach to lighting for companies like Le Klint.

RADIO is a piece of contemporary nostalgia created by French-Canadian designer Francis Cayouette. Consisting of airy pendants and wall lamps resembling old radio components, RADIO evokes memories of our industrial past and provides a modern take on technological history.

Hee Welling (Denmark) and Gudmundur Ludvik (Iceland) have joined forces under the brand Welling/Ludvik, creating a series of lamps for Watt a Lamp, called Turbine. The fundamental idea of the Turbine series is that their structure enables the lamps to be modulated into different shapes and sizes, using different materials, all of which are more or less transparent. The lamps in the Turbine series can be assembled in just a few minutes.
