Casella Floor Lamps | Marc Sadler is really a genius for quick yet unimaginable solutions
– take Twiggy, for example, the light, flexible arc lamp.
One day he got into the organization and showed us something very interesting: a fishing rod.
The designer believes that the simple shape and flexibility of the material’s performance makes Twiggy unique and different in the other products in the marketplace: “The material is really a carbon/fiberglass mix, come up with using a binding resin. It has a high mechanical resistance which is extremely light and ductile.” The fact that it really is ductile enables the roll-out of shapes that have been ‘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 light source in the base, that’s height adjustable as a result of something of counterweights, and length adjustable using a pair of arm extensions.

Twiggy Floor Lamp is made up of linear sections, exactly like a fishing rod of the support for a tent. When it really is taken apart it occupies very little space as soon as it really is assembled it curves harmoniously. A simple system of counterweights, inside a space higher than the diffuser, allows the height to get adjusted at distances of 5 cm.
Twiggy’s base is also inspired by the image of a fishing rod placed in the floor, using a simple, light disc that does not take up much space. Yet, at the beginning of the project, it had been a good metal body. Now it has become all to easy to insert anywhere, even by sliding it under a table, a chair or even a carpet.
Twiggy is really a slender, natural symbol in space and as a result of this slender nature it may be marked with strong colors, to harmonize with virtually any environment or taste.
