500w Halogen Floor Lamp | Marc Sadler is really a genius for straightforward yet unimaginable solutions
– take Twiggy, by way of example, the light source, flexible arc lamp.
One day he arrived to the company and showed us something worth it to read: a fisherman’s rod.
The designer believes that this simple shape and adaptability of the material’s performance makes Twiggy unique and different from your other products out there: “The material is really a carbon/fiberglass mix, build with a binding resin. It has a high mechanical resistance and it is extremely light and ductile.” The fact that it is ductile enables the roll-out of shapes which were ‘stretched’ on the very limit also to obtain unusually sized diffusers. The flexibility of the material defines the ample and essential curve of the arm that carries the sunlight source from your base, that’s height adjustable thanks to a system of counterweights, and length adjustable with a set of arm extensions.

Twiggy Floor Lamp is made up of linear sections, exactly like a fisherman’s rod of the support for a tent. When it is taken apart it occupies almost no space as soon as it is assembled it curves harmoniously. A simple system of counterweights, in the space above the diffuser, allows the height being adjusted at distances of 5 cm.
Twiggy’s base is also inspired from the image of a fisherman’s rod occur the bottom, with a simple, light disc that doesn’t take up much space. Yet, at the beginning of the project, it absolutely was an excellent metal body. Now it is easy to insert anywhere, even by sliding it within a table, a chair or a carpet.
Twiggy is really a slender, natural symbol in space and thanks to this slender nature it can be marked with strong colors, to harmonize with any kind of environment or taste.
