Exclusive Danish design lamps
The company’s product philosophy is very strict and uncompromising. Louis Poulsen produces products with a simple, stylish, and straightforward design that works equally well in a modern or classic interior.
Louis Poulsen collaborates with architects, engineers and designers on many different projects. In order to optimize the ambience, new luminaires are often created for specific projects—which very often later also become part of the standard collection of architectural lighting.
Poul Henningsen has had a major influence on Louis Poulsen. Together, they created a lighting and product philosophy in the late 1920s summed up in three words: function, comfort and ambience. These three keywords still represent what the company stands for today. Some of Louis Poulsen’s iconic products include Poul Henningsen’s PH 5 Luminaire,PLH Design’s LP Charisma King and PH 2/1 Stem Fitting. The PH 5 pendant lamp is today included in Denmark’s cultural canon. Some of the other iconic designers and architects Louis Poulsen has collaborated with include Arne Jacobsen, Anu Moser, Vilhelm Wohlert and Louise Campbell. Today, the brand is highly regarded and continues to operate in the same spirit. 2012 saw the relaunch of the Doo-Wop pendant, in response to public outcry; it had been out of production for 30 years. This shows how strong a demand there still is, after more than 100 years in the lighting business, for Louis Poulsen’s products.
