Electric light has been around for little more than a century – a blink of an eye in comparison with human evolution. Today, in a world of high-technology and electronics, Wästberg also believes in creating modern-day fires. Light should shine for us, not on us.

Technology and innovation are at the heart of what Wästberg does and is crucial to providing good light. However, Wästberg understands that what’s technically possible is not always humanly preferable. To Wästberg, true innovation means making the effort to find the best possible solutions, putting equal effort into both the measurable and the immeasurable.
