In addition the fourth release from Louis Poulsen, the new PH5 Mini suspension, will be available from the beginning of October.


The PH5 Mini is a smaller version of the original PH5 design by Poul Henningsen in 1958. The PH5 was introduced as a classic new product, one that is completely glare-free.


Louis Poulsen


With the PH5 design Henningsen wanted to improve the colour reproduction of the light source. Small red and blue shades were inserted to supplement the colour in the part of the spectrum where the eye is least sensitive – the red and blue areas – thereby subduing the light in the middle yellow-green region where the eye is most sensitive.


The new PH 5 Mini is introduced with an innovative new colour palette, developed in collaboration with colour expert Louise Sass with the darkest tone at the top and then softened shade by shade.


The Mini will be available in the Classic colour version of PH 5, a new contemporary white, and an additional six colour finishes: Hues of Orange, Hues of Rose, Hues of Red, Hues of Green, Hues of Blue and Hues of Grey.

New A/W Collection from Louis Poulsen


As we approach Autumn/Winter we’re giving you a sneak peak at Louis Poulsen latest releases. The product launch includes 1 brand new design and additional finishes to 3 of Louis Poulsen most popular classics. The releases will be online and available to purchase from September 2017.


Yuh


Louis Poulsen


Yuh is a brand new collection designed by GamFratesi which includes a floor, table and wall version. Yuh is the phonetic form of ‘you’; the letters represents the sound made by the voice to say “you”. 


The shade’s design is light and flexible, being able to be raised, lowered or tilted. One of the essential features of the lamp is for it to be personal, a lamp created just around you. The lamp has a built in LED which provides a high quality of light and a button placed on the upper tube on the table and floor and on the bracket for the wall which acts as a switch and dimmer. Available in black or white.


Doo-Wop


Louis Poulsen


The Doo-wop pendant was originally introduced in 1952 and was a design from close cooperation between the Danish navy buildings department and Louis Poulsen. The pendant was taken out of the range in 1982 then later reintroduced in 2012 in new colours and a brass version.  Now Louis Poulsen is rereleasing the design with two new polished metal variants; Copper and Stainless Steel. The pendant primarily provides a directed downward soft light while the outer main shade provides light up and down while at the same time spreading a soft diffused glow. By the end of the year the blue, green and red finishes will be discontinued. The family will then consist of dark grey, white, brass, copper and steel.


VL38 Black/Brass


Louis Poulsen


The VL38 table was originally designed in the late 1930’s by Vilhelm Lauritzen in partnership with Louis Poulsen for the construction of the Radiohuset building in Copenhagen. In fall 2016 the VL38 was relaunched in white/brass. Now in 2017 Louis Poulsen had released the black edition which has a stronger outline than the original whilst maintaining the loved retro look and the soft, curvy expression of the original design. The design emits a downward directed light with the shade adjustable to optimise the light distribution. The shade is painted white on the inside to ensure a soft comfortable light.


The finial release will be unveiled at the beginning of September so keep an eye on our blog for the latest news!

Louis Poulsen New In!

9 September 2016 Permalink

Louis Poulsen


Louis Poulsen has released their newest collections for 2016 and we love them all.


The Mini Panthella Table


Louis Poulsen


The Mini Panthella Table is a new smaller version of the iconic Panthella Table designed by Verner Panton in 1971. The new design has a diameter of 25cm, scaled down from the standard 40cm size.


Verner Panton (1926-1998) is famous for his colourful personality and his unique sense for colour, shape, light function and space rd 40cm size.


The colours of the table lamp are taken from the last exhibition he was working on before his death in 1998: 'Lyset og Farven' ('Light and Colour') hosted at Trapholt Museum of Modern Art in Denmark.  The exhibition was eight rooms each with different colours where the furniture, light fittings and fabrics were all designed in the same shade.


The Mini Panthella Table features a painted metal shade and is available in eight eye-catching colours; Yellow, Orange, Violet, Red, Pink, Blue, two shades of Green as well as White, Opal Acrylic and Black. The Mini Panthella Table features three light intensities and the latest integrated LED technology.  The metal shade directs the light directly downwards and creates a soft and comfortable illumination reflecting off the trumpet shaped stem.


NJP Wall & Floor


Louis Poulsen


The NJP Table Lamp from Louis Poulsen quickly became a success when it was launched last year. This year they have followed in its success and added a new floor and two wall-mounted versions.


The NJP family is designed by Oki Sato and features two light intensities: one for directed work lighting and one for dimmed, ambient lighting suited for a lounge or bedroom.


The lamps are fitted with an LED light source which is positioned high as to avoid a dazzling light and should you forget to switch the light off, it switches off itself saving both money and energy.


The NJP collection was designed with the principle of keeping things simple and to resemble the classic Anglepoise lamp, yet boast new functions intended to make it easily adjustable for work or relaxation.


Rasmus Markholt, Design Manager at Louis Poulsen said “The world is changing every day, as is the way we lay out our assignments and our workstations today. This weighed heavily in the design of the lamp. I would say that we have succeeded spectacularly in creating a modern version of the anglepoise lamp thanks to Oki Sato’s minimalist, elegant design, combined with the technological finesses and functions of the lamp itself,”.


VL38


Louis Poulsen


Louis Poulsen has re-launched the lamp which was originally designed for the Radiohuset building in Copenghagen. The new series of lamps under the name of VL38 features a table, wall and floor version. The VL38 family features a lamp head which is organically shaped and painted white with the arms of the light fittings made of brass, and fitted with an LED light source.


Rasmus Markholt, Design Manager at Louis Poulsen says “From the perspective of design, the VL38 family is related to the chandeliers Vilhelm Lauritzen created for Radiohuset. It is an extremely simple, function and elegant series of lights, and the combination of white and brass is both beautiful and timeless. The shape of the lamp head directs the light downwards, so it always provides pleasant, non-dazzling illumination. All the lamp models are typical examples of Vilhelm Lauritzen’s approach to a modern and functional design idiom that also distinguishes his architecture”.


Demand for the original lamp proves that Vilhelm Lauritzen’s lamps never go out of fashion.


VL45


Louis Poulsen



Louis Poulsen is re-launching another original design, the Radiohus Pendant from the 1940’s. Again this light was originally designed for the Radiohuset building in Copenhagen. The Original Pendant was Louis Poulsen’s best-selling lamp when it was first launched 80 years ago and has become a cherished design, one which is still in great demand. The lamp has been renamed the VL45 Radiohus Pendant and will be available with two different diameters; 25cm and 37cm. The VL45 Pendant consists of three layers of mouth-blown glass and accommodates modern advances in light technology, accommodating an LED light source.


 “The historical ties between the Radiohus Pendant and the building for which it was created are clearly reflected in the design and the light-technology properties of the light itself. It was originally used for general illumination in many parts of the Radiohuset building. And with its powerful downwards light combined with gentler illumination via the opal glass – which generate softer tones in the room – it is simply ideal for illuminating both everyday objects and more decorative items” says Rasmus Markholt, Design Manager at Louis Poulsen.


Patera 45


Louis Poulsen


The Patera 45 Pendant is a new smaller version of the original design, a creative result of the relationship between Louis poulsen and Øivind Slaatto. The Original pendant was launched last year and became an instant success with is organic shape and beautiful structure. The Patera Pendant is now available in its standard 60cm size as well as the new smaller 45cm version which are both available in E27 and LED versions.


No matter what angle you view the patera, it is a attractive, decorative globe of light which streams out gently in all directions.  Design Manager at Louis Poulsen, Rasmus Markholt highlights the ease of placing the light as one of the reasons to it popularity.


“At first glance, it appears to be nothing but a white, perforated ball, but closer inspection reveals its detailed design, which features a host of circles, angles and holes. Øivind Slaatto has created a pattern that is exciting and enchanting to look at, because it is mathematical, natural and poetic all at once,” adds Rasmus Markholt.


It is intended to serve as a modern chandelier, a lamp that ties the space together making the room more welcoming and accommodating.
