The Turbo Pendant illustrates design at its best: it is simple in form yet complex in structure and combines a sense of airiness and strength in a beautiful sculptural whole. Inspired by the lightness of the Japanese rice paper lamp, Turbo is more durable and sturdy with its outer curve made up of 12 aluminum spiral lamellae that form a flower-like globe that shields the light of the bulb.
ABOUT THE MAKER
The curators at Gubi make dwelling in the past look good...really good. Their team of "treasure hunters" is on a mission to re-launch iconic designs from the 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, and today. That's over fifty years of eclectic, international, and groundbreaking mid-century modern design brought to the present. Best history lesson ever.
