Louis Weisdorf's Turbo Pendant was designed in 1965, but first put into production in 1967 and has achieved great success over the years. It illustrates design at its best: it is simple in form, yet complex in structure and combines a sense of airiness and strength in a beautiful sculptural whole. 

The inspiration for the lamp is the lightness of the Japanese rice paper transformed into a more durable and sturdy version. The outer curve of the lamp is made of twelve similar spiral lamellae, that form a flower-like globe that shields the light. The Turbo Pendant is a perfect example of Weisdorf's passion for multiple repeating elements that he used for most of his works.

Louis Weisdorf (1932– 2021) is a well-known Danish architect and industrial designer. After becoming one of the youngest designers to graduate from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen in 1954, he worked across graphic, interior, architectural, and industrial design. Weisdorf described himself as a specialist in versatility, which sums up the prodigious and notable career of this multi-faceted designer.

His work is mostly recognizable as an exploration of uniform slats as a way to direct light. The designer was fascinated by the simple design principle of the repeating form that offered so much flexibility in appearance depending on the colour and positioning of the slats, while shielding the eye from direct bulb glare from all angles. Weisdorf had a passion for objects that can be changed by the user, involving them in the design process and offering a more dynamic design.

Today, Weisdorf is world-renowned, his lamps are sought-after collectors’ items and his Multi-Lite for Gubi appears in Chloé stores all over the world.
