Moroccan Style Floor Lamp | Marc Sadler is often a genius for easy yet unimaginable solutions
– take Twiggy, for instance, an easy, flexible arc lamp.
One day he got into the business and showed us something quite interesting: an angling rod.
The designer believes that the simple shape and adaptability of the material’s performance makes Twiggy unique and different from the other products available on the market: “The material is often a carbon/fiberglass mix, build having a binding resin. It has a high mechanical resistance which is extremely light and ductile.” The fact that it’s ductile enables the development of shapes that were ‘stretched’ for the very limit and 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 from the base, which can be height adjustable thanks to a system of counterweights, and length adjustable having a set of arm extensions.

Twiggy Floor Lamp consists of linear sections, just like an angling rod of the support for any tent. When it’s taken apart it occupies almost no space and once it’s assembled it curves harmoniously. A simple system of counterweights, inside a space above the diffuser, allows the height to become adjusted at distances of 5 cm.
Twiggy’s base is also inspired from the image of an angling rod placed in the ground, having a simple, light disc that does not occupy much space. Yet, at the beginning of the project, it was a great metal body. Now it is simple to insert anywhere, even by sliding it under a table, a chair or perhaps a carpet.
Twiggy is often a slender, natural symbol in space and thanks to this slender nature it could be marked with strong colors, to harmonize with any kind of environment or taste.
