Louis Poulsen is a Danish lighting manufacturer founded in 1874 and born out of the Scandinavian design tradition where form follows function. The function and design of our products are tailored to reflect and support the rhythm of natural light. Since our first collaboration with Poul Henningsen in 1924, his views on the dualities of design and light have influenced our light philosophy. Every detail in the design has a purpose. Every design starts and ends with light.
We believe in passionate craftsmanship that produces quality lighting and appealing design products. In close partnership with worldclass designers, architects and other talents, as Poul Henningsen, Arne Jacobsen, Verner Panton, Øivind Slaatto, Alfred Homann, Oki Sato and GamFratesi we have established Louis Poulsen as one of the key global suppliers of architectural and decorative lighting across the professional and private lighting markets for both indoor and outdoor applications.
Our means are simple and beautiful design. Our purpose is to create an attractive ambience that affects people and spaces.
We design to shape light.
