Louis Poulsen History

Louis Poulsen was founded in Denmark in 1874, with the guiding principle that form follows function: each element of a lamp must justify its presence by enhancing its use, and aesthetics begin and end with light.

Le designer Poul Henningsen

In 1924, architect-designer Poul Henningsen teamed up with Louis Poulsen to take part in a lighting design competition organized in Paris, the "Exposition Internationale des Arts DΓ©coratifs & Industriels Modernes".

Incandescent light bulbs had just been introduced, and Poul Henningsen had to harness their 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. In response to the war, Poul Henningsen designed a blackout lamp to provide light without being seen by the German planes flying overhead.

Another great name associated with the history of Louis Poulsen is architect-designer Arne Jacobsen, author of many icons of world design, who notably signed the AJ lamp collection in 1957, available as table lamps, floor lamps and wall lamps, and which never left the catalog.

Verner Panton designed the iconic Panthella lamp in 1971, now available in many sizes, materials and colors, and a Louis Poulsen bestseller for many years.

Another great name in Danish design history, architect-designer Vilhelm Lauritzen has seen his major luminaires reissued by Louis Poulsen in recent years.

But Louis Poulsen is also a brand rooted in the present, attentive to the talents of today, whether Danish, Swiss, English or Japanese, such as Clara von Zweigbergk and Oki Sato of Nendo.
