Turbo by Louis Weisdorf


Danish designer Louis Weisdorf designed the iconic Turbo pendant back in 1965. This year design house Gubi has relaunched in 2 sizes.

Weisdorf has been quite the versatile designer though his career as he created concepts for everything between amusement parks to lamps.

Turbo is made from a number of identical metalsheet lamellaes twisted into a round shape. This gives the hidden light source a playful expression.
