LET THERE BE LIGHT

_R5A5292With autumn round the corner, it is the time of year when we will start to think about lighting up our living spaces. Broste Copenhagen believes that good lighting is indispensable.

The right lighting brings a homely feeling and atmosphere into the room. When choosing a lamp it is important to think about a lights character and design, its materials and its placement and the ambience you wish to create.

In the AW collection from Broste Copenhagen they have included a great number of different lights to fit most if not all interiors. Prices vary with designs:  for example the concrete socket retails at £30 and a brass pendant £124.00.

New PH 3½-3 Pendant – More than an Icon

Ikast 11Ikast 28

To mark Poul Henningsen’s 120th birthday on 9 September, Louis Poulsen is launching the new PH 3½-3 pendant.

The PH 3½-3 pendant is based on Poul Henningsen’s original drawings from the late 1920s and early 1930s, featuring his renowned three-shade system.

The pendant has metal shades, available in green, yellow, red and white. The fixture housing is silk mat brown and made of copper. All colours are based on Poul Henningsen’s colour universe. Like the designer, the fixtures are colourful!

As an extra feature, all shades have a white painted rolled edge, accentuating the familiar profile of the three-shade fixture and creating beautiful optical symmetry.

The shades are pressed at Louis Poulsen’s factory in Vejen, by Louis Poulsen’s own staff – a craft only very few are trained in.

Although the fixture is over 80 years old, it is both modern and classic at the same time, making it ideally suited to a broad range of interior design environments. It is seen as a charming, rustic, functional and unpretentious fixture. But it is much more.

Ikast 35

The PH 3½-3 pendant is a piece of Danish lighting design history. It provides functional, decorative light, and gives any interior a boost simply by being there, whether lit or unlit. It is beautiful alone, or grouped with other fixtures.

Poul Henningsen’s design is timeless. A journalist recently went as far as to call his design immortal! Irrespective – we are confident that the PH 3½-3 pendant will continue to inspire a lot of interior design – even in 10, 20 or 30 years.

Poul Henningsen was called the light artist, to which he responded: “If you create art, you are an artist – good or bad. And illuminating a room is most certainly art!”

Poul Henningsen’s fixtures are being sold around the world today in large numbers – art or no art!

The PH 3½-3 pendant has metal shades, available in green, yellow, red or white, with white rolled edges. The fixture housing is silk mat brown, and made of copper. The shade holder and screws are made of copper plated brass, to ensure adequate strength. It comes with an E27 socket, allowing it to be used with LED, energy saving and halogen bulbs Max. 100W. The recommended retail price is £632 incl VAT.

Energy class: A+ – E 

Available in stores from October 2014.                                                                              www.louispoulsen.com
