With its adjustable shades, Louis Weisdorf’s Multi-Lite is one of the most dynamic and adaptable lighting designs of the 20th century. The introduction of the portable edition makes it even more interactive.
First launched in 1972, the Multi-Lite design is unique in its playful flexibility, allowing the light to be directed in multiple directions with a simple adjustment to its shades. Unrestricted by cables, the new edition gives fans of Weisdorf the opportunity to bring the Multi-Lite’s exceptional functionality to any space in the home – or outside it. In the portable iteration, each component of the light has been redeveloped and adapted to optimize ergonomics and stability and to ensure that all parts work together in harmony.
In his own words, the studio of Architect Louis Weisdorf (born 1939) "specializes in versatility". This, quite perfectly, sums up the long and notable career of this multi-designer. Since graduating from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts' School of Architecture in 1954, Weisdorf has worked with everything from graphic-, interior- and industrial design, to the planning of parks and recreational areas as well as most fields within the building trade. This adds to an impressive résumé of notable projects, which includes working with icons such as Verner Panton, Poul Henningsen and Le Klint.
