The Konkylie light was designed by Louis Weisdorf for the Tivoli Garden in Copenhagen in 1963. It was partly inspired at a technical level by Verner Panton's Moon lamp. Louis Weisdorf created the design for his next pendant light called Turbo in 1965. Consisting of 12 uniform aluminium lamellae spiral-twisted to form a flower-like sphere, the Turbo was partly inspired by Japanese rice-paper lanterns.
The Arco Lamp is a work of art, as well as being immensely functional. The base is made from Carrara marble which comes from a quarry in the Italian Alps. Many of Michelangelo's sculptures were fashioned from this stunning marble which is available in white or black. The base weighs approx 143lbs (65kg) and has a cleverly positioned hole through the middle so that it can be moved with the aid of a broom handle! The design of the lamp is the same today as the day it was first produced except for the technology behind the wiring which is always being improved.
Artemide Choose is a classically designed piece, perfect for direct or diffused lighting. Vertical transparent slits allow light to diffuse better. The fixture has a metal base with red or parchment paper. Artemide Edge is a square-shaped wall light fixture that comes in a pale shade of white. Designed by Alessandro Mendini, Edge has a thermoplastic diffuser and can be mounted on a wall as well as hung over a table.
