Originally introduced in 2012, the new W127 winkel is a developed version of Wastberg most award-winning and best-selling task light. A lot of hard work has been put into refining the lamp in some key areas such as mechanics, operation and, of course, lighting.
The W127 winkel is the result of a progressive collaboration between Wastberg, the Berlin-based designer Dirk Winkel and the Gemany-based chemical company BASF.
The W127 winkel challenges the perception of a material that is known to people as just plastic, going further than the norm, not only in terms of function and looks, but also in terms of the feel and tactility of the material. The aim was a significant impression of substance, of materiality — the design celebrates the actual material as it is, straightforward, solid and honest, with a concept of hiding nothing, but showing its innermost values to the outside. No second skin, no paint coat; the true, bold material in its pure form.
A new high performance material is used that offers the possibility of doing large, solid cross-sections, giving us the desired tactility and technical characteristics. It is based on over 60% biologically sourced and recyclable material from the castor plant. This represents a step ahead by setting the course for producing independently of mineral oil based plastics.
