Weisdorf’s Konkylie was made for trees

Posted by modblog 06/09/2010 0 Comment(s) Lyfa,Louis Weisdorf,

Louis Weisdorf’s extraordinary Konkylie ("Conch Shell") light was originally designed for Copenhagen’s Tivoli Gardens, where it hung from trees in glorious fiery clusters. Like Simon P Henningsen’s Divan 2, also designed for Tivoli, the Konkylie was subsequently put into general production by Lyfa. Already confident of its enduring appeal, a 1967 Lyfa advert (reproduced below) described the Konkylie in the following terms:

Louis Weisdorf MAA is a young architect with a strong sense of form. With his creative and technical understanding, he has designed a series of lights for Lyfa – the Konkylie lamps, available in “silver” or “gold”. A truly fascinating light, which will one day become a classic.
