Design by Marc Sadler, 2006.
The Twiggy Floor Lamp 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. Select from incandescent or energy efficient LED lamping.

Love it- very dramatic statement
I wanted to get this lamp in white but my partner was pretty adamant about yellow, so I conceded. It is actually a very nice color, not too overpowering (more like a curry/mustard color), but still very dramatic against our white walls. The stems are surprisingly flexible - I guess that is because of the composite material - and the shade comes with five counterweight disks that you can add one at a time to the top of the shade to incrementally lower it (I didn't realize that when we bought it, but it is nice to be able to change the height at will). The base is hefty, but very flat (think heavy steel plate).

Customer service is responsive
The Twiggy lamp is elegant and well designed. Surprisingly the shade and the arc are made of plastic, but if they were not the additional weight would probably necessitate a more substantial base. The base is a flat metal plate that moves easily once the lamp is assembled.

I and my husband were debating for weeks over Alco lamps vs Twiggy and we finally decided to get Twiggy due to its flexibility. We also have extension stems which is really simple to install. One of the best thing about this lamp is that we can adjust the curvature with weights. Also with 3 150 watt bulbs, it is bright enough to light the whole dining area. The Twiggy lamp is over our dining table and it really transformed the whole dining space.

This is a very contemporary and surprisingly substantial lamp. It has a terrific "presence" in our room and casts a light that is warm yet sufficient for tasks and reading. The shade color is a bit more grey than white in the daylight, but not a real problem. This is a very cool lamp for a large space.

The lamp is beautiful and really "makes" the room. It's quite large, so it has become the centerpiece of the living/dining room. I would recommend the lamp only for rather large and airy (e.g. high ceiling) spaces, as it really needs that space to show off the arc and shape.

I have a white one. It has a slight grayish white which I find it very pleasing. It adds so much to my living room without overpowering. I have purchased several lamps last few years, but this is the one I'm most happy with. That says much.
Finally, a real graceful parabolic arc lamp!
We were deciding between the ARCO and MIRIS lamps but went with Twiggy because it's the only one we found with a smooth real parabolic arc (higher with a more sweeping acute bend and arcs out). This is accomplished through actual flexing of the stem into the parabola rather than pre-fabrication of the arc as in other lamps. This gives a natural sense of balance and lightness to this rather substantial lamp (we have both additional stems installed). The materials composing the stem (carbon fiber composite) makes this structure possible, Absolutely stunning lighting our 60" round dining room table. There's even plenty of walkway behind the chairs!

This floor lamp is a great piece for so many reasons, couldn't be happier with the product. Easy to assemble and Ylighting is great to work with as well! I may want the extension rods but not sure until more of my furniture arrives.

This product is not only a lighting feature, it is a piece of art.
