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.

The NJP Work Light

NJP_STAY06Louis Poulsen launched the new Work Light as a result of a partnership with Japanese design company Nendo, and designer Oki Sato at Milan. But this new interpretation of the architect lamp is just as much at home in the bedroom as in the office.

Versatility and an intuitive understanding of how the lamp is used have been key themes in Oki Sato’s work. The head is shaped to make it easy to adjust the lamp and switch it on and off using one hand. The two arms provide great movement and many stepless positioning options.

One elegant detail is that the shade head is open at the rear, so that reflected light from the LED light source is utilised to illuminate the top section of the arm. A decorative – and practical – detail which allows the angle of the shade head in relation to the arm to be steplessly adjusted via a ball joint. The opening also improves the thermal conditions for the LED light source, thereby helping ensure a long lifetime.

NJP Table will be available in the stores in September. Available in black or white. The recommended retail price is £325.00

Don’t be afraid of colours. They can liven up a room whether you just use them as splashes or do the whole room in bright colours. Louis Poulsen has some great pendants and they come in some glorious colours.

Hang a bunch of different colours together and you get a vibrant feel.

Or use one strong colour in an otherwise neutral room to create effect.

DOO- WOP

Doo-Wop is an unpretentious, simple pendant for a wide variety of applications thanks to its medium size and light emission. It is harmonious in design and perfect for hanging on its own, in rows or in clusters.

 

It was originally launched in the 1950s. Designed by Louis Poulsen in close collaboration with the Navy Buildings Department. It was used for many years in a wide variety of Royal Danish Navy premises.

 

The Navy Pendant, as it became known, was very popular owing to its unique lighting properties and utility. It was not until the early 1980s that it disappeared from Louis Poulsen’s catalogues.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In recent years, more and more of the older models have come onto the market via antique shops and auctions which has generated demand and calls to resume production.

 

The new version is faithful to the earlier one. While the colours have been updated to go with contemporary décor, the production methods have remained the same. The shades are turned by hand before being bent up slightly at the edge to give them their special optical volume. The brass version is a challenge of craftsmanship, as it is made from a solid sheet of brass and has a high-gloss finish.

 

 

Doo-Wop will brighten up the lounge, dining room, kitchen, home-office, nursery, hall, staircase or bedroom – it brings a breath of fresh air and good lighting to any room in the house. 

 

 

In principle Doo-Wop has two reflectors, the inner cone-shaped one, which provides anti-dazzle downlighting, and the outer one, which provides soft up/downlighting. The outershade in particular helps to create stylish, atmospheric illumination around the pendant.

 

Doo-Wop is available in red/orange, paleblue, green, white, black/grey and an exclusive brass version. All the models have an E27 socket. The lamp’s design makes it possible to use several different light sources without it affecting light quality, but the use of light sources with a colourindex of less than 85 is not recommended, as this would have an adverse effect on colour rendering and ambience in the room.

 

Doo-Wop will be in the shops from early September and available  from all approved Louis Poulsen stockists.   RRP: £250 for the colour ones and £420 for the brass.
