Concept

The w 127 winkel is the result of a progressive collaboration between Wästberg, the Berlin-based designer Dirk Winkel and the Gemany-based chemical company BASF. Working with features such as solid and by large extent biologically sourced plastic, highly qualitative and efficient LEDs and micro springs, we spent more than three years developing what we consider to be the most refined task light ever seen.
The w 127 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.

Multichip LED:
The light technology is based on a highly energy-efficient multichip LED solution. This consists of a cluster of diodes instead of several separate diodes. By using multichip LED, so called multi-shadows are avoided and a very even light pattern is achieved.
Micro gas springs:
The mechanical solution is based on micro gas springs, widely used in the automotive and electronics industries. The gas springs have a lifespan of more than 50,000 compressions and give exceptionally good movement patterns.
Anti glare system:
The shade is adjustable for universal direction of the light. There is a glare-protection system to minimize both direct and indirect glare.
IR-dimmer switch:
Winkel w127 is equipped with a seamless dimmer that is operated by an IR-switch.
Timer function:
A built-in timer automatically turns the lamp off after five hours.
Colours: white, grey, black, red

Material:
Winkel w127 is manufactured of solid fiberglas reinforced biopolyamide that is based on over 60 per cent renewable material derived from castor oil. Like any kind of thermoplastic it is recyclable.
