TURBO pendant
 
design: Louis Weisdorf (1965)
 


Design of lamps and lighting has been a significant and noteworthy part of Weisdorf’s career. Working with pioneers within the field, such as Poul Henningsen and Le Klint, Weisdorf has surrounded himself with the best. With a creative nurturance and experience such as this, it is no wonder that his talent stretches so far and his lamp designs have attracted national as well as international acclaim and attention.
 
His unique sense of form, function and aesthetics is characterized by sculptural elegance and great lighting qualities. 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 aluminum spiral lamellae that form a flower-like globe that shields the light of the bulb and the vertical lamellae prevent gathering of dust is minimal.
