Bauhaus Arc & Twiggy Floor Lamp
Written by Katie on April 15, 2008. Permalink
While these two floor lamps are quite similar in idea, they are entirely different in how the design is actually executed. For those on a budget, the Bauhaus (shown at top) will make do just fine, and the extra bells and whistles that the Twiggy (at bottom) sports is not quite worth the extra $1800. But, those of you that appreciate the finer things, the Twiggy is impressive in quality and detail- take a look at its credentials and see which one might fit you best.
Bauhaus Arc Floor Lamp:
“Arc de triomphe in top to bottom all metal, all white. Pedestal iron base rises off-center, then swoops to high light over seating, bed, dining. Shade is a major surprise in smooth aluminum; exposed butterfly nut (white [or olivine] of course) pivots shade to direct the beam. On/off foot switch.”
59″Wx15.25″Dx80″H, $199.00, Buy it here.
Twiggy Floor Lamp:
“The Twiggy is characterized by a thin, elegant and sophisticated design. Flexibility is the word for Twiggy; flexibility of the material which defines the ample and essential curve of the arm that carries the light source far from the base, in the possibility of adjusting the height of the shade thanks to a system of counterweights, and in the possibility of adjusting the length of the arm with a set of extensions (sold separately).”
Twiggy is available in four color choices: red, black, white or yellow. Made from a compound material with a fiberglass base. Bottom diffuser shields direct view of lamps.
Dimensions 67″L X 77″ – 85″H; 18″D shade, $2,022.00, Buy it here.
