For over a century, Louis Poulsen has redefined how we see light. Founded in 1874, the Danish lighting manufacturer embraces a classically Scandinavian design ethos that prizes functional forms and quality craftsmanship. Since the 1920s, it has collaborated with some of the world’s finest architects and designers to develop contemporary light forms. Its first collaboration, with designer Poul Henningsen in 1924, resulted in the award-winning Paris lamp and marked the beginning of a lifelong partnership that produced the now-iconic “PH” lamp collection - a re-imagining of the classic chandelier as a series of louvered shades that sculpt light to reduce glare. Louis Poulsen’s later designer collaborations built on that early vision with midcentury masterpieces like Arne Jacobsen’s AJ floor lamp and Verner Panton’s Panthella table lamp, as well as contemporary classics like Oki Sato’s LED NJP table lamp. The brand's visionary lighting has made it a luminary in modern design, and in 2011 it became the only lighting company to ever win the AIA’s prestigious Institute Honors for Collaborative Achievement Award.
