Louis Weisdorf already designed the Turbo pendant lamp in 1965. It shows design as it should be: A simple form and still with complex structures for weightlessness and strength make up the Turbo.
The geometric shapes seem to be moving and do therefore remind us of the turbines of a turbo charger. Which is the reason for the name of the Gubi pendant lamp: twelve identic aluminium spirals form the iconic exterior. Weisdorf was also inspired by Japanese rice paper lamps that give the shapely weightlessness to the Turbo.
The interlaced lamellae make up a light sculpture, which shield the illuminant and only free indirect light through the openings. That’s how the Gubi Turbo pendant lamp serves as illuminant for living rooms and bedrooms with its different light facets.
Gubi produces the Turbo pendant lamp by Louis Weisdorf in two sizes (diameter 36 cm and 62 cm).
