‘Austere’ can mean sleek, linear and/or stripped of excess. And also slender and tranquil just like an ethereal silhouette. It can’t get purer than this. Complete coverage and absolutely discrete. This design from lighting designer Hans Verstuyft won the Henry van de Velde award in 2015. The AUSTERE is gracious, clearly practical. Its beam of light is like a Chinese lantern, a small and simple lamp that feels natural in any location. The construction of this light fitting is subtle and practical. The AUSTERE fits in everywhere be it a kitchen, reading area or bedroom. A classic in a modern interior or a modern touch adding to a classic design. Suited for ceiling, table, wall and floor in models that all display the same elegance.
