300w Floor Lamps | Marc Sadler is often a genius for straightforward yet unimaginable solutions
– take Twiggy, by way of example, a light, flexible arc lamp.
One day he came into the business and showed us something very interesting: a fisherman’s rod.
The designer believes the simple shape and suppleness in the material’s performance makes Twiggy unique and different in the other products on the market: “The material is often a carbon/fiberglass mix, come up with using a binding resin. It has a high mechanical resistance and is also extremely light and ductile.” The fact that it can be ductile enables the roll-out of shapes which have been ‘stretched’ towards the very limit and obtain unusually sized diffusers. The flexibility in the material defines the ample and essential curve in the arm that carries the sunshine source in the base, that is height adjustable thanks to a method of counterweights, and length adjustable using a group of arm extensions.

Twiggy Floor Lamp comprises of linear sections, the same as a fisherman’s rod in the support to get a tent. When it can be taken apart it occupies very little space and once it can be assembled it curves harmoniously. A simple system of counterweights, inside a space over the diffuser, allows the height to be adjusted at distances of 5 cm.
Twiggy’s base is also inspired through the image of a fisherman’s rod emerge the soil, using a simple, light disc that will not use up much space. Yet, at the beginning in the project, it had been a good metal body. Now it is all to easy to insert anywhere, even by sliding it within a table, a chair or possibly a carpet.
Twiggy is often a slender, natural symbol in space and thanks to this slender nature it may be marked with strong colors, to harmonize with any kind of environment or taste.
