The light object
Turtles do not necessarily care much about design objects. Yet, due to their reduced form, in our opinion they have an enormous potential to become design objects themselves – or at least serve as a role model. The pleasing oval, the brazen shell, the unagitated presence ... We could do nothing else but impersonate this fabulous creature. Made of aluminium die cast and break-proof crystal glass, equipped with progressive LED technology and amended with benefits that even would have excited Grzimek, TURTLE becomes a light object in rough industrial design that crowns the idea of simplification. The textile-covered cable takes us on a short journey to the past and perkily scatters a retro perspective to the rational purism; back to the present with demonstrative casualty but still eye-catching, it snuggles to wall and furniture. Close your eyes for a moment and blithely hop around between complement and stylistic inconsistency: Think of TURTLE in rank and file on masonry, high gloss front, concrete or brick. Put it on a desktop made of glass, slate or coloured high pressure laminate as an additional light source. Or use the S-hook to hang it on an opulent Wilhelminian door handle or on Eames’ »Hang it all«. The massive metal cross on the back can be used as footprint or hanger; TURTLE can be moved from wall to table, from hook to sideboard, from kitchen to office hassle-free. By the way: As opposed to its natural pendant, TURTLE manages these changes much more quickly. Sorry, dear role model.
