The Louis Poulsons “lighting philosophy”

The designer lighting created by Louis Poulsen is the result of a well-considered “lighting philosophy”. The pillars of this philosophy are energy consumption and personal well-being. It is based on the idea that people should feel pleasant in the “company” of lighting. Each design is a balance of three key elements: practicality, comfort and ambience.

Using a simple and practical design, Louis Poulsen provides user-friendly lighting of an outstanding quality. Only the essential elements are used to create the desired lighting effects. But, don’t expect dull lighting! There is certainly a place for creativity at Louis Poulsen. This allows room for fun and irrational elements finding their way into their breathtaking designs.
