In the 1920s Louis Poulsen collaborated with renown and respected lighting designer Poul Henningsen to create a lighting philosophy based on function, comfort and ambience.
The essence of Louis Poulsen is to create human-friendly lighting—comfortable lighting that makes people beautiful and creates an excellent atmosphere. The philosophy continues to this day to clearly influence the minimal and functional product design—with a focus on human well-being and perception of artificial light—to help create unique lighting environments. Louis Poulsen's product designs are also admired for their quality and lasting appeal, with the result that products remain contemporary year after year.
Today the company is a leading international lighting manufacturer that produces simple, beautiful products that suit types of architecture from all cultures, both new and old.
