When Poul Henningsen designed the iconic PH Artichoke for the Langelinje Pavillon restaurant in Copenhagen, in 1958, he opted for solid copper leaves with a pale rose coloured finish on the inside. This combination provided an exceptional warmth to the lamp's organic form and beautifully reflected the light. The PH Artichoke creates soft, glare-free illumination, with its complex design and structure ensuring that the light breaks and filters evenly into the room.

Louis Poulsen has always sought, not only to design lamps, but to shape light and create an atmosphere that makes people feel good, both indoors and outdoors. Their products provide exceptional light, that helps people to thrive in the space. 

City & Landscapes

Louis Poulsen's solutions for outdoor lighting are rooted in a deep knowledge of the demands of both city and landscape illumination, as well as an understanding of how to combine design and technology to create the optimal human experience.

Work, Learn, Play

Lighting isn't simply a question of aesthetics. It also has a direct impact on quality of life. In fact, the right lighting can significantly improve performance in the workplace, and in educational institutions. Lighting is becoming subject to ever greater requirements in terms of light quality, durability, energy efficiency and aesthetics. This is in complete alignment with Louis Poulsen's philosophy of light, which aims to provide exceptional lighting for all tasks.

Hospitality & Leisure 

Providing guests with a sense of warmth and a welcoming environment is a refined art in the hospitality industry. Creating a comfortable environment is the starting point for great experiences, and the right lighting contributes significantly to the ambience.
