A pure disc of light
A disc of pure light, attached to a thin line – who’d guess that an object so geometrically simple could be so versatile, so adaptable to different situations? With its imaginative approach, innovative materials and sophisticated mechanics, w182 Pastille not only offers high-end performance at a mid-range price – it rethinks the way we relate to the light around us.
By fluidly rotating upwards, downwards, and around its own axis, w182 Pastille freely articulates surfaces to create soft, diffused light as well as gentle yet clear definition.
Renewable and recyclable
The warm tactility of w182 Pastille comes from its renewable and recyclable high-performance material – a biopolyamide based on over 60% biologically sourced material from the castor plant.
Remarkable spread of light
Thanks to a perfect balance between a COB LED light source, a large reflector and a generous concave diffuser, w182 Pastille provides a spread of warm, soft illumination. The smooth dimming is controlled with a touch of the button on top of the vertical pole.
w182 Pastille is adaptable to a variety of spatial conditions while taking up minimal space. In addition to the classic desk model, a wide range of mounting options allow it to be clamped to a desk or shelf, attached to a wall, placed on a floor, or integrated into a desk or wall surface with no visible cable.
Attention to detail
Every detail has been given careful thought and is crafted with great precision – from the overmoulded metal parts and ultrasonic welding, to the dimmer button on the top of the vertical pole.
The floor stand in steel features a high-gloss powder-coated finish, as a contrast to the matte bio-polyamide lamp. The cord is integrated into the floor stand.
Designed to recreate the full, uninterrupted colour spectrum of sunlight, full-spectrum light has a rich, profound quality that is impossible to achieve with the limited spectrum of a standard LED. Full-spectrum light also offers superior colour rendering, making it an ideal choice for environments where correct colour perception is a vital aspect.
Sam Hecht and Kim Colin
Sam Hecht and Kim Colin are partners of the design office Industrial Facility in London. Their designs reflect both a meticulous attention to detail and a thoughtful consideration of form. Hecht is from London; Colin is from Los Angeles. Together they have developed production projects for companies ranging from Yamaha and Issey Miyake to Herman Miller and Mattiazzi. They are probably best known for their work with Muji Japan, as world designers for more than 20 years, creating beauty out of utility in the products, furniture and exhibitions they design.
The studio’s work has been well documented, with over fifty international awards, including 6 iF Hannover Gold Awards. Their projects are part of most significant permanent collections including the MoMA, New York; Centre Pompidou, Paris; the Chicago Art Institute and the V&A museum in London, amongst others, and was the subject of the exhibition ‘Industrial Facility: Some Recent Projects’, held at the Design Museum in 2008. Both Hecht and Colin have been appointed as ‘Royal Designers’, as well as being nominated for the Prince Phillip design prize. A monograph of their complete works has been published by Phaidon and in 2015 they presented their curatorial exhibition ‘Beauty as Unfinished Business’ at the Saint Etienne Biennale in France.
