Beautiful brass Multi-Lite pendant designed by Louis Weisdorf for Lyfa, Denmark 1972. The lamp has an ingenious feature that lets you switch configuration from uplighter to downlighter at the turn of a knob. The lamp is in very good condition and marked with manufacturers label.
Among Louis Weisdorf’s 1970s lamp designs, the Multi-Lite is one of the few to be taken into production. The core of the Multi-Lite is a two-cylinder form that would work as a shade on its own, but is additionally encompassed by a large metal ring anchoring two quarter-spherical shells. The shells can be individually rotated to create multiple arrangement combinations. Weisdorf made the drawings for the Multi-Lite in 1972 and Lyfa produced it from 1974. Louis Weisdorf (born 1939) graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts´ School of Architecture in 1954. Weisdorf was active in graphic-, interior- and industrial design, working with Verner Panton, Poul Henningsen and Le Klint.
