Kinzig Design Floor Lamps | Marc Sadler is often a genius for simple yet unimaginable solutions
– take Twiggy, by way of example, the light source, flexible arc lamp.
One day he got into the corporation and showed us something worth it to read: a fisherman’s rod.
The designer believes the simple shape and suppleness in the material’s performance makes Twiggy unique and different through the other products on the market: “The material is often a carbon/fiberglass mix, assembled having a binding resin. It has a high mechanical resistance and is also extremely light and ductile.” The fact that it is ductile enables the development of shapes which have been ‘stretched’ for the very limit and to obtain unusually sized diffusers. The flexibility in the material defines the ample and essential curve in the arm that carries the sunshine source through the base, that is height adjustable because of something of counterweights, and length adjustable having a group of arm extensions.

Twiggy Floor Lamp consist of linear sections, exactly like a fisherman’s rod in the support for a tent. When it is taken apart it occupies very little space and once it is assembled it curves harmoniously. A simple system of counterweights, in a very space over the diffuser, allows the height to be adjusted at distances of 5 cm.
Twiggy’s base is also inspired with the image of a fisherman’s rod set in the soil, having a simple, light disc it doesn’t undertake much space. Yet, at the beginning in the project, it had been an excellent metal body. Now it is now simple to insert anywhere, even by sliding it with a table, a chair or a carpet.
Twiggy is often 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.
