Turbo Pendant Lamp
Made by Gubi
The inspiration for the Turbo Pendant 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. 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 Turbo Pendant is a perfect example of Weisdorf's passion for multiple repeating elements that he used for most of his works.
