Clara von Zweigbergk
The Cirque Pendant is part of this new collection launched by Louis Poulsen, in collaboration with the graphic artist and Swedish designer Clara von Zweigbergk.
It was after a trip to the Tivoli amusement park in Copenhagen that this lamp was created. When an object is spinning on itself at high speed, like a carousel, the colours blend and we can see horizontal bands of colour. These swirling impressions resulted in a series of innovative lamps that add character and originality to their environment – both in daylight and when lit.
The Cirque pendant is suitable for all kinds of environment: a bar, a restaurant, a kitchen, or even a room. It diffuses light downwards, and thanks to its matte white reflector, it does not dazzle when suspended at a normal height.
The Cirque pendant is available in three sizes and four colour combinations, one vivid and three more sober.
