The LC Shutters Pendant is Louise Campbell's latest creation for Louis Poulsen.
What could be done with one aluminium plate still holding on to the DNA of Louis Poulsen? Not only "shading" but also "distributing". To "wrap up the light" to avoid glare from the naked light source. But at the same time spreading out the light. And creating ambience. Louise Campbell: "It is about finding a delicate balance. I prefer 100 lit candles to a single powerful light source any day. So how design a single lamp? By fragmenting the light it emits." Like in all other lamps Louise Campbell have designed for Louis Poulsen, she works with layers. In LC Shutters this is done by perforating and punching an extra layer out of one piece of material. This makes the lamp very robust and strong. The light source is shielded by an opal diffuser.

Louise Campbell was born in Copenhagen in 1970. Being the daughter of a Danish father and an English mother, she grew up and was educated in both countries. After graduating from the London College of Furniture in 1992, she returned to Denmark and continued her studies in Industrial Design at Denmark's Design School, graduating from here in 1995. She set up her own studio in 1996, from where she has worked independently since. Her main focus is on furniture and lighting design, but the studio is increasingly involved in product and interior design projects as well.
Louise Campbell’s work is playful and experimental, and is increasingly gaining a reputation for gently twisting not only every day objects and situations, but also materials and manufacturing processes in new directions. The combination of Scandinavian rationalism and femininity, and perhaps her dual nationality, give the works of Louise Campbell an unusual edge. Illustrating contrasts seem to be an issue that keeps returning in her work.
The studio is also known for its interest in less commercial activities. Apart from being the curator and designer of exhibitions, Louise Campbell has taken part in numerous activities aiming at improving the design environment in Denmark. Among these initiatives is ‘Walk the Plank’, a collaboration lasting seven years between 30 furniture designers and 60 cabinet makers, all of whom donated their time and original design for a truly fine cause.
There are a few ground rules the studio aims to abide by: Always start from scratch. Everything is possible until the opposite has been proven. There must be a good reason for every single decision made.
Among different awards achieved by Louise Campbell, she won the IF Product Design Award in gold for “Campbell Pendant” in 2005, which she designed specifically for Louis Poulsen.
