INSPIRED BY LOUIS POULSEN

In 1874, the birth of a company that faced a new understanding of light dates back to 1874. We are in Denmark, where every form has to be in close contact with a specific function and is linked to it: Louis Poulsen decides to apply this concept to newborn lamps for the home and establishes a strong collaboration with artists, architects, designers and talents who are in able to follow his "enlightened" vision. Along with its genius designers such as Poul Henningsen, Arne Jacobsen, Verner Panton, Øivind Slaatto, Alfred Homann, Oki Sato, who have managed to create Poulsen's thought material in terms of new concepts that illuminate individual atmospheres in which spaces and touch people, who occupy them.
The company constantly offers lighting solutions in line with the living concept of the Scandinavian style, following the evolution of modern design. The numerous showrooms and countless dealers of the Louis Poulsen line provide help and support in the selection of customers who want to approach the new concept of space lighting for the first time.

The history of the icon: PH ArtichokeLouis Poulsen lamp in its industry has never ceased and he will most likely never produce a designer jewel made with wisdom and almost maniacal geometry by artist Poul Henningsen. The designer, who has been cooperating with the Poulsen company practically from the moment of entering the market, is endowed with an innate genius, quite crazy and visionary, but rational and focused on everyday life. He designed over 100 lamp models, all with one goal: to maximize light and minimize the glare that comes from it, to provide the environment with the right mix of relaxation and excellent vision.
Henningsen began a brilliant career, winning numerous awards. and recognition as early as 1925, when critics of the Paris exhibition Exposition internationale des arts decoratifs et industriels moderne awarded the series of lamps with a valuable gold medal. The following year 1926, Louis Poulsen successfully began distributing these light masterpieces around the world. PH Artichoke still makes a good impression in numerous public and private collections. The special construction of the "layered lampshade" gave rise to many theories about inspiration: the game of alternating plates, bowls and cups, simulation of a stylized artichoke or the famous concept of a cone. Production stops with the outbreak of World War II.

After a forced hiatus in the war, Louis Poulsen resumes production and after the success achieved by Henningsen in the implementation of the magnificent Karczoch PH (as many as 72 trapezoidal copper leaves for each lamp) made for the Langelinie pavilion, a famous and luxurious restaurant in Copenhagen), as they go to a facility that has received unlimited praise from critics, the press and the public. In 1959, on the occasion of the exhibition House the Day After Tomorrow, a rainbow version was created. From the following 1960, Poulsen achieved impressive numbers in artichoke production, distributing it virtually anywhere, in copper, steel or painted metal versions. Since then, the fame of this lamp has never diminished, it was and still is the company's undisputed bestseller.
Henningsen lamps today sell for quite a lot of money, hundreds of thousands of dollars. In large auction houses you can also find unpublished valuables such as the House of the Future and Spiral, of which he created two versions, wall mounted for the Scala Concert Hall in Århus and ceiling mounted for the University of Århus.

Shape lights for Louis Poulsen The company continues its stride towards the success of "lighting forms", the undisputed leader in the concept of satisfying and relaxing light diffusion. The solutions he presents for pendant, wall, floor, recessed and table lamps are noble objects for interior design, made of high-quality materials such as blown glass, copper, metal, polycarbonate, aluminum, opal glass, PVC and acrylic glass. One of the latest achievements of Louis Poulsen is signed by Olafur Eliasson. The artist created OE QUASI LIGHT, a complex and fascinating lamp with extreme geometric shapes. The two objects that make it up are placed almost like a nest, one inside the other: outside we find an icosahedron, a rigid aluminum geometry with 20 faces and 12 vertices, internally as if suspended in a void, a second dodecahedron with 12 faces and 20 vertices. The light emission is completely spherical , the lamp can take different shapes depending on the position of the person looking at it and is in fact conceived from a completely personal perspective.
Two Louis Poulsen lamps, the PH5 and the PH5 Mini, were presented in limited editions at current year. Made of brass screens alternating with so many white screens, when turned off they take on a warm and intense color that gives the surroundings the charm of a refined and modern design, when turned on they represent the exaltation of the concept that this company has always pursued in distributing light in rooms.
