Samtid Floor Lamp | Marc Sadler is really a genius for simple yet unimaginable solutions
– take Twiggy, for instance, the light, flexible arc lamp.
One day he came into the business and showed us something quite interesting: a fishing rod.
The designer believes that the simple shape and adaptability with the material’s performance makes Twiggy unique and different through the other products available on the market: “The material is really a carbon/fiberglass mix, assembled using a binding resin. It has a high mechanical resistance which is extremely light and ductile.” The fact that it is ductile enables the roll-out of shapes which have been ‘stretched’ towards the very limit and to obtain unusually sized diffusers. The flexibility with the material defines the ample and essential curve with the arm that carries the light source through the base, which can be height adjustable because of a method of counterweights, and length adjustable using a list of arm extensions.

Twiggy Floor Lamp consists of linear sections, much like a fishing rod with the support to get a tent. When it is taken apart it occupies almost no space as soon as it is assembled it curves harmoniously. A simple system of counterweights, in a very space higher than the diffuser, allows the height to get adjusted at distances of 5 cm.
Twiggy’s base is also inspired from the image of a fishing rod set in the bottom, using a simple, light disc that does not occupy much space. Yet, at the beginning with the project, it absolutely was a great metal body. Now it may be an easy task 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 because of this slender nature it may be marked with strong colors, to harmonize with virtually any environment or taste.
