Louis Weisdorf's Turbo Pendant was designed in 1965, but first put into production in 1967 and has achieved great success over the years.
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 multiply repeating elements that he used for most of his works.


Louis Weisdorf

In his own words, the studio of Architect Louis Weisdorf (born 1939) "specializes in versatility". This, quite perfectly, sums up the long and notable career of this multi-designer. Since graduating from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts' School of Architecture in 1954, Weisdorf has worked with everything from graphic-, interior- and industrial design, to the planning of parks and recreational areas as well as most fields within the building trade.

This adds to an impressive résumé of notable projects, which includes working with icons such as Verner Panton, Poul Henningsen and Le Klint.


At Gubi, we're on a continual quest. A journey. Fuelled by our passion to discover overlooked icons from the past and future icons in the making, we've made a distinctive name for ourselves in the international design arena as a dynamic design force to be reckoned with.
