In 1924, Poul Henningsen created his influential Paris lamp for Louis Poulsen, and the origin of how they still design to shape light can directly be traced back to his views on the dualities of design and light.
Founded in 1874, Louis Poulsen is a Danish lighting manufacturer born out of the Scandinavian design tradition where form follows function. The function and design of their products are tailored to reflect and support the rhythm of natural light. Every detail in the design has a purpose. Every design starts and ends with light.
They believe in passionate craftsmanship that produces quality lighting and design products that are pleasing to the eye and to the light.
