Asian Style Floor Lamps | Marc Sadler is a genius for easy yet unimaginable solutions
– take Twiggy, for instance, the light, flexible arc lamp.
One day he came into the business and showed us something very worthwhile: a fisherman’s rod.
The designer believes that this simple shape and adaptability of the material’s performance makes Twiggy unique and different from the other products in the marketplace: “The material is a carbon/fiberglass mix, assembled having a binding resin. It has a high mechanical resistance and it is extremely light and ductile.” The fact that it is ductile enables the creation of shapes which were ‘stretched’ to the very limit and obtain unusually sized diffusers. The flexibility of the material defines the ample and essential curve of the arm that carries the sunshine source from the base, which can be height adjustable because of a process of counterweights, and length adjustable having a group of arm extensions.

Twiggy Floor Lamp consists of linear sections, exactly like a fisherman’s rod of the support for the tent. When it is taken apart it occupies very little space once it is assembled it curves harmoniously. A simple system of counterweights, in a very space across the diffuser, allows the height to be adjusted at distances of 5 cm.
Twiggy’s base is also inspired from the image of a fisherman’s rod placed in the soil, having a simple, light disc that does not undertake much space. Yet, at the beginning of the project, it absolutely was a great metal body. Now it may be all to easy to insert anywhere, even by sliding it within table, a chair or even a carpet.
Twiggy is a slender, natural symbol in space and because of this slender nature it may be marked with strong colors, to harmonize with virtually any environment or taste.
