A GUBI COLLECTION

Multi-lite By Louis Weisdorf

The Multi-Lite Collection 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.

Multi-purpose, Multi-lite
 

The 1972 Multi-Lite Collection by Louis Weisdorf represents the ‘golden era’ of Danish design, featuring two adaptable, characterful shades that are sure to become the focal point of any room. A metal ring, two concentric cylinders and a pair of rotating quarter-sphere shades form the playful and customizable lamps of the Multi-Lite Collection. Simply adjusting the shades transforms the light, enabling the light to be directed upwards, downwards or even in asymmetric beams.

Starry, starry night
 

Timeless and versatile, midnight blue is – as Christian Dior put it – “the only color that can compete with black”. Named for its evocation of the color of the night sky around the full moon, it is the shade Vincent van Gogh reached for when capturing the magic of the pre-dawn sky in his iconic 1889 painting Starry Night. In design terms, midnight blue has the flexibility of a neutral, complementing almost any other shade and introducing a note of refinement to an interior space.
