ILLUMINATING YOUR HOUSE

LW_kartoffelr+ªkkerne_0015     LW_kartoffelr+ªkkerne_0023 As with all lighting, there is good reason to carefully consider your choice of outdoor lamps. They have to withstand the ravages of weather, and fulfill a specific functional task, in terms of providing good illumination of the entrance. They are also your visitors’ first impression of the style and atmosphere you have set in the rest of the house.

Louis Poulsen has a number of great outdoor lights:

The PH 3-2 1/2 designed by Poul Henningsen is made from black lacquered steel and designed on the principle of a reflective three-shade system, which directs the majority of the light downwards. The shades have a matt painted interior surface diffusing the light in a comfortable way. It retails at £605.00.

The AJ Wall LED is designed by Arne Jacobsen and emits downward directed light. The shade is painted white on the inside to ensure a soft comfortable light. Made from Die Cast aluminium it retails at £649.00.
