Multi-Lite pendant, design Louis Weisdorf, Gubi.
The Multi-Lite pendant was designed in 1972 by Louis Weisdorf. The pendant embraces the golden era of Danish design with its characteristic shape of two opposing outside, mobile shades that enable creating a personal installation and a wide range of lighting values in a room. By individually rotating the shades, the Multi-Lite Pendant can be transformed into multiple combinations where the light can be directed upwards, downwards or exude an asymmetrical art light.
