A Warm Welcome to a Design Icon - Louis Poulsen
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. We very much share this belief and are equally passionate about the craftsmanship that produces quality lighting and design products that are pleasing to the eye and to the light. Louis Poulsen is a new brand we warmly welcome into the Funktion Alley Family and with Christmas just around the corner, we thought it would be the perfect time to introduce Louis Poulson to you. We always associate Christmas with lights, there’s no reason why this has to just be on your Christmas tree! Louis Poulsen has a wonderful range that would make a great addition to your space this Holiday Season!
Louis Poulsen Pendant Lighting
Choosing Louis Poulsen Pendant Lighting works well if your room is smaller because it does not consume a lot of space. On top of that, you can also hang them at any desired height. Another notable advantage of pendant lighting is that it can offer a broad spectrum of light. Although the lamp is small, it can produce light that can almost cover the whole room. A Louis Poulsen Pendant light come in many designs; hence you can easily acquire one that matches the theme of your house. Here are a few designs that we think would make your home that bit more special, this Christmas;
This glowing, sphere pendant by Louis Poulsen is built up of small diamond shaped cells, each carefully designed to capture and shield light from the viewing angles above 45 degrees. Below 45 degrees, the fields are open to direct light downwards, whilst a small amount of light is also sent upwards to illuminate the ceiling. The Louis Poulsen Patera Pendant Light is a contemporary pendant that could easily become the focal point of any interior space. Or could be used in series of them, staggered or aligned, in one size or all three. This would certainly give your home a Christmassy feel and create the same sense of magic, as when we gaze up at a starry sky…
Crisp winters evening, snowball fights in the snow… the Louis Poulsen PH Snowball Pendant captures the essence of how beautiful nature can be in the winter months. A philosophy used by Louis Poulsen, taking Inspiration from their urge to carry the soft luminescence of the Scandinavian summer into the dense darkness of the Scandinavian winter. The Louis Poulsen PH Snowball Pendant emits a comfortable, glare-free diffused light. The matt painted undersurfaces and glossy top surfaces of the shade result in an attractive reflection, creating a uniform light distribution around the fixture. When switched on, the top portion is illuminated while the bottom part remains dark. The Louis Poulsen PH Snowball Pendant can be used to illuminate an entire room or suspended over a dining table or lounge area to create a cosy atmosphere.
Perhaps your spare room needs a little attention for those guests this Christmas. The Louis Poulsen PH5 Mini Pendant provides 100% glare free light as it emits both downward and lateral light, thus illuminating itself. Its design is based on the principle of a reflective three-shade system, which directs majority of the light downwards. Louis Poulsen wishes to cater to contemporary and creative living and with a vast range of colours this pendant is fit for any interior space, especially a guest bedroom, ensure that if you are choosing copper and brass the surface is untreated. This means that the surface will change over time and develop a patina. Your guests will never want to leave

By doing this, an even distribution of light over the entire curve of the shade is achieved.
