BY LOUIS WEISDORF
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, he is world-renowned, and his lamps are sought-after collectors’ items.
The 1972 Multi-Lite Collection by Louis Weisdorf represents the ‘golden era’ of danish design, featuring two adaptable, characterful shades that are sure to become the focal point of any room. A metal ring, two concentric cylinders, and a pair of rotating quarter-sphere shades form the playful and customizable lamps of the Multi-Lite Collection. Simply adjusting the shades transforms the light, enabling the light to be directed upwards, downwards, or even in asymmetric beams.
A DYNAMIC DESIGN
Weisdorf made the drawings for the Multi-Lite in 1972. The lamp collection reflects Weisdorf’s passion for objects that can be changed by the user, involving them in the design process and offering a more dynamic design. Simply adjusting its shades transforms the lamp, enabling light to be directed upwards, downwards or even in asymmetric beams. As Weisdorf himself said: “It's a bit more complex.”
A FOCAL POINT OF ANY INTERIOR
Each lamp in the Multi-Lite Collection comprises a metal ring, three cylinders and a pair of rotating quarter-sphere shades. Angling the shades directs the light upwards, downwards or in asymmetric beams, transforming the lamp into the focal point of any interior, and allowing the user to change the mood of the space with a simple adjustment.
PORTABLE LIGHT EDITION
Working in collaboration with Louis Weisdorf’s family, GUBI has redeveloped every component of the Multi-Lite Table Lamp for the portable edition. While preserving its signature look, the lamp has been thoughtfully redefined, imbuing it with a lightweight and versatile character, and making it a seamless addition to the existing Multi-Lite Collection of pendants, table and floor lamps.
Louis Weisdorf (1932– 2021) was 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.
