The Gubi Turbo Pendant Light was originally designed in 1965 and has been re-released to critical acclaim. The sculptural powder coated matt white diffuser was inspired by the lightness of Japanese rice paper lamps.
This glowing gem shields the direct light of the bulb by emitting a soft glow through its curved openings. The flower-like globe is constructed of 12 similar aluminium spiral lamellae making it durable and sturdy. The vertical lamellae acts to reduce the gathering of dust.
Material: The outer curve of the lamp is made of 12 similar aluminum spiral lamellae that form a flower-like globe that shields the light of the bulb.
Louis Weisdorf is a Danish architect and designer who was born in 1932 and is best known for his Multi-Lite collection of lamps. After graduating from the The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen in 1954, Weisdorf worked in many design disciplines. He has always been interested in creating lights from a single element that could be repeated and built together in various fashions and a guiding principle of shielding the eye from direct bulb glare at all angles, which can for example be seen in his Turbo Pendant from 1967 and Gubi Multi lite.
