J Hunt Home Floor Lamp | Marc Sadler can be a genius for easy yet unimaginable solutions
– take Twiggy, for example, an easy, flexible arc lamp.
One day he came into the corporation and showed us something very interesting: a fisherman’s rod.
The designer believes the simple shape and adaptability from the material’s performance makes Twiggy unique and different through the other products in the marketplace: “The material can be a carbon/fiberglass mix, put together using a binding resin. It has a high mechanical resistance and is also extremely light and ductile.” The fact that it really is ductile enables the development of shapes that have been ‘stretched’ to the very limit and obtain unusually sized diffusers. The flexibility from the material defines the ample and essential curve from the arm that carries the light source through the base, that’s height adjustable because of a process of counterweights, and length adjustable using a pair of arm extensions.

Twiggy Floor Lamp is made up of linear sections, the same as a fisherman’s rod from the support to get a tent. When it really is taken apart it occupies almost no space and once it really is assembled it curves harmoniously. A simple system of counterweights, inside a space above 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 occur the soil, using a simple, light disc it doesn’t take up much space. Yet, at the beginning from the project, it was a solid metal body. Now it is now all to easy to insert anywhere, even by sliding it with a table, a chair or possibly a carpet.
Twiggy can be a slender, natural symbol in space and because of this slender nature it could be marked with strong colors, to harmonize with just about any environment or taste.
