Walmart Paper Floor Lamp | Marc Sadler can be a genius for easy yet unimaginable solutions
– take Twiggy, for instance, the light source, flexible arc lamp.
One day he got into the company and showed us something very interesting: a fishing rod.
The designer believes how the simple shape and adaptability in the material’s performance makes Twiggy unique and different in the other products out there: “The material can be a carbon/fiberglass mix, put together using a binding resin. It has a high mechanical resistance and is extremely light and ductile.” The fact that it really is ductile enables the creation of shapes which were ‘stretched’ on 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 in the base, which is height adjustable thanks to a process of counterweights, and length adjustable using a group of arm extensions.

Twiggy Floor Lamp is made up of linear sections, much like a fishing rod in the support to get a tent. When it really is taken apart it occupies little or no space once it really is assembled it curves harmoniously. A simple system of counterweights, inside a space over the diffuser, allows the height to become adjusted at distances of 5 cm.
Twiggy’s base is also inspired by the image of a fishing rod set in the floor, using a simple, light disc that doesn’t take up much space. Yet, at the beginning in the project, it was an excellent metal body. Now it has become an easy task to insert anywhere, even by sliding it with a table, a chair or perhaps a carpet.
Twiggy can be a slender, natural symbol in space and thanks to this slender nature it may be marked with strong colors, to harmonize with virtually any environment or taste.
