Louis Poulsen is a Danish lighting manufacturer that was founded in 1874. Close cooperation with architects over many years has made them a leading supplier of architectural lighting on the world market.
Louis Poulsen's approach to architectural development began with its collaboration with one of the best known and respected light designers, Poul Henningsen. Together with Poul Henningsen, Louis Poulsen created a lighting and product philosophy summed up in the words function, comfort and ambience, a philosophy that continues to this day.
Louis Poulsen's approach to lighting lies in a very strict and uncompromising product philosophy grounded in simplicity. There must be no elements which do not serve a light related purpose. This results in products with a very simple and discreet design, ideally suited to all types of architecture, both new and old, across cultural styles.
Louis Poulsen's product designs are also admired for their unique quality and lasting appeal, with the result that projects remain contemporary year after year.Back
