The Scandinavian Design tradition is synonymous with a beautiful and thought-through, clean design and craftmanship. If you are looking for a pendant or lamp that matches the atmosphere and design of a room, chances are that the acclaimed Danish lighting manufacturer Louis Poulsen has a great answer to your search. Some of the best known designs from Louis Poulsen include the PH 2/1 and PH 3/2 and the AJ Table lamp. The abbreviations are for some of the most well-recognized and iconic Danish designers Poul Henningsen, who created his first lamp for Louis Poulsen back in 1924, 50 years after Louis Poulsen was founded. AJ stands for Arne Jacobsen whose designs are equally iconic, at least in Denmark and Scandinavia but also well beyond the region’s borders.
Deciding on the right lighting may be the single most important design decision for a well-functioning interior design. The lighting has to match the context and take the use into account, as there will of course be as many different requirements for lamps as there are situations for which you need to turn on the light.
Lighting design also makes a huge difference to the quality of outdoor designs.
Louis Poulsen offers a huge selection of several hundreds of pendants, floor lamps, table lamps and wall lamps as well as thought-through and decorative lighting for outdoor use.
Whether for interior design og for outdoor lighting designs, the pendants and lamps from Louis Poulsen have been created with a wish to both ‘reflect and support the rhythm of natural light’, which can be seen once you turn on the lamps and use them at different times during the morning, day, evening and night.
Among the designers in the selection of Louis Poulsen are other iconic creators besides the before-mentioned Poul Henningsen and Arne Jacobsen. Some of the most noteworthy lighting designers behind the lamps and pendants are Verner Panton, Øivind Slaatto, Alfred Homann, Oki Sato and Louise Campbell.
If you are familiar with any of these names and the designs of both lamps, pendants and of furniture and accessories to which they have become synonymous, you will have high expectations and they will be met. All of the designs share an ambition to create a good atmosphere and a soft and inviting light that is pleasing to the eyes. The motto of Louis Poulsen is: “We design to shape light”.
