Collage in Peaceful New Colours

    collage_aarhus_08 smaller

The well-known Collage pendant  is being released in a new version to celebrate 10 years since its launch.

The pendant  began attracting attention back in 2005 as soon as Louis Poulsen introduced it onto the world market in cooperation with the designer, Louise Campbell.

Ten years on, the Collage  now hangs in homes, institutions, universities, hospitals and numerous restaurants around the world.

Collage is being released in a new series of douche colours, and a new matt velour-like finish. These give Collage a completely new identity, and the fascinating shadow patterns formed by the three-layer shade set have an exclusive new and different look.

The Collage pendant is available in two sizes: Ø600 mm and Ø450 mm. The pendant’s simple expression makes it very versatile above dining tables and meeting tables, or as high general lighting. Collage is available in a flexible version with an E27 fitting, which fits the new LED bulbs. To further optimise lighting comfort, an anti-glare set can be purchased for the top and bottom as an optional extra. This diffuses the light directed upwards and downwards, and also inhibits direct views of the light source from all directions.

The new colours and surfaces will give any indoor environment a new identity and atmospheric lighting. Whether on or off, the new Collage light fixtures create beautiful focal points for gatherings of any size.

Louise Campbell’s inspiration from nature, translated into room lighting, has proven to be an enduring and valued design idea, which has made her name and the Collage light fixture known around the world. She has thereby proven herself to be among the key Danish designers, carrying on proud Danish design traditions in cooperation with Danish companies.

  • Collage 450 retails at £610 in white and £665 in colour
  • Collage 600 retails at £940 in white and £1050 in colour

The pendant will be available in UK shops in February

AEROS WHITE

Louis Poulsen is launching the Aeros pendant by internationally renowned designer Ross Lovegrove in a white version, greatly extending the possible applications for this beautiful and slightly mysterious product.The other version, in an anodised golden sand colour, remains in the range.

 

The Aeros pattern looks significantly different in the white version. With the light off, the pattern has more contrast, and when the light is on the pattern and lamp appear lighter and brighter. The distinctive reflector with its Fibonacci pattern also has a different, decorative look when the light is both on and off.

 

Measuring 723 mm in diameter, Aeros is a large lamp, but the white colour greatly reduces the visual perception of it. The lamp is ideal for both dining and coffee tables. The light source, a 60W halopin, comes with the lamp and ensures optimum colour rendering, which is particularly important when used above dining and coffee tables. The light source can be dimmed,of course, which also helps to create a unique ambience.

 

Aeros retails at £1527

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.

New bright ideas from Louise Campbell

Louis Poulsen has again teamed up with Danish/English designer Louise Campbell to produce a lamp, LC Shutters, the fourth she has designed for LP – and again it reflects innovative thinking.

Louise Campbell’s creative side develops in step with the challenges, and this time she challenged both herself and Louis Poulsen. It is said that simplicity is difficult, and that has certainly been the case here. Her idea with the new lamp was to create a pendant with a minimum of processes, based on a single shade. The process has literally been cut down to three basic elements: turning the shade, stamping the pattern, and painting.

 

LC Shutters is very harmonious light. It is available in two versions – a completely white edition, and one with a pattern of various colours which helps create a completely different expression, when the light is on or off.

LC Shutters not only protects against glare, it is 100% glare-free, and the light source is protected by a diffuser which shields direct viewing and also prevents it from being touched. The diffuser can be easily removed and cleaned – yet another factor which makes the pendant very maintenance friendly, both in the home and the workplace.

 LC Shutters is a lamp which can be used in a wide range of settings. Many want to put it above their dining table at home. A logical choice, but the light has an amazing ability to blend into its surroundings in a natural way. Louis Poulsen often tests lamps in various settings and LC Shutters demonstrated a remarkable ability to add a decorative and tasteful softness to its surroundings, helping to make rooms more human and communicative. LC Shutters produces honest lighting. A soft and diffuse light which provides ideal illumination for faces, without distracting shadows so it ideal for meeting rooms, where communication should have the best possible conditions. 

Louis Poulsen excels at developing and producing very precise, identical metal shades. These skills hail from the days of Poul Henningsen, and the ongoing production of his lights keeps them sharp as a daily discipline at the factory in Vejen, Denmark.

All Louise Campbell’s lamps have multiple layers, and this one is no exception. However, the extra layer is created in the same shade, and this was the crux of the challenge. A completely new tool was necessary – a tool which can stamp with millimetre precision, on a curved surface.

Louise Campbell said about her new light: “I aimed to draw attention to the balance between glare reduction and spreading the light in the room. The shade and diffuser are integrated. A single unit with a clear function – protecting against glare, creating atmosphere, but also diligently spreading the light. Despite the dense, hard material, the design expression is soft and friendly.”
