Wästberg Holocene No. 1 Oil Lamp.
Wästberg's Holocene No. 1 is an elegant, modern interpretation of an oil lantern conceived by Ilse Crawford. Typical of this British designer is the design, which is sleek and refined; the most important part of the design is the flame, which is beautifully reflected by the shiny brass surface of the lantern.
Wästberg's Holocene collection is a tribute to fire, mankind's first light source. The name of the collection comes from geology: the Holocene is the geological era that started after the last Ice Age when the actions of man did not yet affect nature. The purpose of the collection is to remind you how important elemental fire has been to humanity and that it still offers ways to create atmospheric and pleasant lighting - instead of or in addition to electric lighting.
