Thoughts from the Designer
“I designed the Hektar standing spotlight with inspiration from old factories, and as such I wanted to transfer that feeling into a home space. The lamp shades are large and made of metal, in contrast to the inner lining, which is cream colored and glossy. I wanted to create an industrial feeling, emphasized by large details. Due to the light lining and large shades, the Hektar floor lamp gives a lot of light, and very good light at that.”— Hektar Lamp Designer, Ola Wihlborg
