Our showrooms in Le Prieuré and Angers permanently display a large number of Louis Poulsen lamps and our website is designed to present the entire range.
Louis Poulsen was founded in 1874 in Denmark, with the structuring principle that form follows function: each element of a lamp must justify its presence by improving its use, and aesthetics begins and ends with the light.
In 1924, the architect-designer Poul Henningsen joined forces with Louis Poulsen to take part in a lighting competition organised in Paris, the "Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs & Industriels Modernes".
Incandescent light bulbs had just been introduced and Poul Henningsen had to harness the power to provide lighting that was both efficient and pleasing to the eye.
Louis Poulsen bought the Laurits Henriksen factory in Copenhagen in 1941 and became a lighting manufacturer. As a result of the war, Poul Henningsen designed a blackout lamp that made it possible to light up without being seen by German planes flying over the city.
Another great name associated with the history of Louis Poulsen is the architect-designer Arne Jacobsen, author of numerous icons of world design, who signed the AJ lamp collection in 1957, available as table lamps, floor lamps and wall lamps and which never left the catalogue.
Verner Panton designed the iconic Panthella lamp in 1971, which is now available in many sizes, materials and colours and has been a Louis Poulsen bestseller for years.
Another great name in Danish design history, architect-designer Vilhelm Lauritzen, has seen his major lighting fixtures reissued by Louis Poulsen in recent years.
But Louis Poulsen is also a brand rooted in the present, listening to the talents of today, be they Danish, Swiss, English or Japanese, such as Clara von Zweigbergk and Oki Sato of Nendo
GamFratesi & Shoichi Uchiyama
