Close cooperation with architects over many years has made Louis Poulsen 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.
This philosophy continues to this day to clearly influence the very simple and functional product design – with a focus on human well-being and perception of artificial light – which helps create unique lighting environments.
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.
