Alfred Homann & Ole V. Kjær, 1976
The Nyhavn wall lamp drawn by Homann and Kjær perfectly embodies the philosophy of Louis Poulsen, centered on the quality of lighting: conical shade that ensures a comfortable downwards light ; the shade Inside is painted white for a uniform light distribution; the rings prevent the formation of lines on the wall while slightly reflecting the light to illuminate the lamp itself.
The Nyhavn outdoor wall lamp was designed by Alfred Homann and Ole V. Kjær in 1976. Nyhavn Wall won a prize in a competition held by Louis Poulsen for lighting in old and heritage urban areas. Alfred Homann had worked on drawings and models prior to the competition, which meant that he and his colleague, Ole V. Kjær, were able to submit material within just five days.
Alfred Homann explains the idea behind the wall fixture: ‘It was important that the fixture was smaller and more discreet than the other products on the market at that time.’ The light is characterised by a cone-shaped shade and three anti-glare rings which emit soft light directed upwards.
