Multi-purpose, Multi-lite

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 new take on a classic

The Multi-Lite Pendant is now available in black brass. The addition of this new finish to the collection brings a beautiful depth that enhances the details of the iconic lamp, giving the collection a new calm feeling with a distinctive luxurious and antique aesthetic.

Pendant or sculpture?

The Multi-Lite Collection of pendants, floor lamps and table lamps showcases Weisdorf’s move away from his traditional design style to pursue a more diverse aesthetic. Alongside the black brass, the lamps are available in brass or chrome, and a range of carefully curated colors.
