GUBI Turbo Pendant by Louis Weisdorf
Turbo Pendant by Louis Weisdorf for GUBI
Louis Weisdorf's Turbo Pendant was designed in 1965, but first put into production in 1967 and has achieved great success over the years. It illustrates design at its best: it is simple in form, yet complex in structure and combines a sense of airiness and strength in a beautiful sculptural whole.
The inspiration for the lamp is the lightness of the Japanese rice paper transformed into a more durable and sturdy version. The outer curve of the lamp is made of twelve similar spiral lamellae, that form a flower-like globe that shields the light. The Turbo Pendant is a perfect example of Weisdorf's passion for multiply repeating elements that he used for most of his works.
