Could it be that Louis Weisdorf’s stint as an architect at the whimsical Tivoli Gardens that inspired his unique Multi-Lite? This Danish designer’s circa-1972 light allows illumination to be directed upwards, downwards or both, with just a touch to the individually rotating shades. The movable metal shades are cleverly mounted on a brass or chrome ring. This timeless composition also shields the eye at all angles from direct bulb glare.

“I started out with two very strong designs, Bestlite—a Bauhaus collection designed in 1930—and Gubi Chair, designed in 2003” Jacob says (both available at A+R). “I felt they had something in common,” he continues. “Iconic appearance, functional design, high quality, aesthetic design language and adaptable for many different kinds of interiors. I took these values as a guideline for any new designs added to the collection ever since.”
