Louis Weisdorf's Turbo Pendant, was created in 1965. It was 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 lamp but in a more durable and sturdy version. The outer curve of the lamp is made of 12 similar aluminium spiral lamellae that form a flower-like globe shielding the light of the bulb. The vertical lamellae minimise the gathering of dust.
The Turbo Pendant is Louis Weisdorf's first product for Gubi.
