The starting point of the W171 Alma lamp is a circle of soft sinusoidal waves that diffuse light. The shape is based on a rotated sine wave, where light and shadow create an easily recognizable character.
The light image of the concentric circles may vary depending on the choice of the light source in the E27 socket. The soft and reduced shape creates a pleasant atmosphere and provides a sculptural feel, even in daylight, when the matte satin finish and surface color emerge. With its slim silhouette, the W171 Alma lamp can be mounted directly on the ceiling or wall, or suspended freely. This facilitates the adjustment of the light to the requirements of the situation.
The lamp was originally developed for a new project of joint work facilities in Stockholm, called Alma. Tham and Videgård were entrusted with the renovation of the five floors and the development of the building's light sources together with Wästberg.
