Welcome to the LIGHT-POINT magazine. What a year it has been, and whilst everyone is still talking about Covid-19 we have been busy behind the scenes creating light. After all, that’s what we do best. Oscar Wilde once said that “The very essence of romance is uncertainty.” And I think we can resonate with that through the journey we have taken to create our newest product collection in these times. In this magazine we introduce you to a number of our iconic products and some newest collections in our rose gold colour. We also share knowledge of what can be achieved with a well-thought-out lighting design to create the right atmosphere in the garden, o ffice space or your home. We also share some selected images to be used as inspiration for your lighting project. Enjoy. Ronni Gol Founder of LIGHT-POINT

Q&A WITH RONNI GOL
LIGHT-POINT Headquarter at Grønnegade, Copenhagen.
The Story Since 1995, LIGHT-POINT has produced innovative lighting based on a long tradition of exceptional quality and fine craftsmanship. As an independent design house in the Nordic Living Group, the company has brought an ultra-modern and characteristic collection of Danish design to the market. The innovative design process is fundamental to the company's development, and today LIGHT-POINT designs produces and distributes its entire range globally. After 25 years of development, LIGHT-POINT's design has progressed to a high international level – an achievement recognised by four Red Dot Awards since 2019. Ronni Gol is the man behind LIGHT-POINT, whereas a designer and CEO of the company, his passion for design is clear. This is reflected, for example, in a great deal of consideration for the entire design process, of which he is a very important part.
Therefore, we originally chose to work with materials such as solid aluminium. It has weight, it’s lasting, and it gives genuine character to the finished product,” says Ronni Gol, when asked about things that he has taken into account when creating the company's design direction and profile. As CEO, Ronni Gol has also established a rewarding collaboration with a number of other designers, and among other things, Nital Patel was appointed Head of Design in 2018 – a move that has greatly strengthened the development of the company and its design process. LIGHT-POINT’s designs are aimed at both home interiors and business environments. In addition, throughout its history, the company has collaborated with numerous architects and designers to create lighting that is functional and aesthetically pleasing and developed based on customer needs.
“I want a design that is razor sharp. I would like for users to experience great satisfaction throughout their own process – from purchasing, unpacking, and installing the product to enjoying the end result, when the lamp is in operation in its new environment. In terms of quality, we need to have the best.

ORBIT COLLECTION C
Choosing the right form of lighting is essential to creating a cosy a tmosphere in your home. But you need to consider more than just th e actual lamp. The placement of the light, which type of light source and what function the room has must be taken into account when lighting up your home. We have gathered a number of lighting options for your inspiration. Home // 45
Hallway The hallway is the first thing that greets you when you enter a home. That is why it is important to have lamps that provide a pleasant light and a good first impression. What lighting you choose for your hallway depends on the size of the room, the natural light and how high the ceiling is. We are experts in functional and atmospheric hallway lighting, which is suitable for short, long, large and L-shaped hallways alike.
L-shaped hallways The FACET wall lamp has a simple, functional and durable design that illuminates smaller nooks effectively. Use the wall lamp to complement a larger lamp centred in the room or spotlights, since wall lamps on their own may have a hard time lighting the entire room.
Small hallways In a small hallway, you can often get away with just using a single lamp. This could be a ceiling lamp like SHADOW, which adds an extra visual dimension to the room with a design that cast light both up and down. Spots, such as ANGLE, are also ideal for small hallways because the light can be turned in different directions ensuring a perfectly lit room. 46 // LIGHT-POINT Magazine
Large hallways In large hallways you have room to use larger lamps making sure you get enough light. Use FOCUS LINE, a track light with an aesthetic expression, to provide ideal lighting around several areas of your hallway. Depending on the size of your room, you may need to add wall lamps or pendants in nooks and corners.
Create your own personal decor If you are not into the classic single suspension lamp above the dining table or two lamps side by side, you can experiment with the beautiful DROP pendant lamp with a design that is both evocative but also designed with a hidden light source to prevent it from blinding you. Suspend a cluster of DROP’s at different heights above the table to create a beautiful light installation.
Dining room The dining room is the room in your home where everyone come together. It is important to choose a lamp that brings people together and creates a cosy vibe. A dining table lamp is essential because it brings t ogether the decor and has a practical function. With one or more lamps suspended above the dining table, you can create your very own unique and personal expression.
Long hallways In a long hallway, a single lamp is typically not enough because you risk the far ends of your hallway not getting enough light. A good idea is to hang several lamps of the same model, such as SURFACE with a space-saving design, which is perfect for smaller rooms.
Contemporary lighting If you want an ultra-modern look in your dining room, try using the beautiful SPIRIT pendant lamp. The balance between t ubular structures gives the SPIRIT collection a distinctive three-dimensional expression and provides plenty of light across the dining table. Home // 47
Kitchen Lighting is very important for both the aesthetic feeling, the atmosphere and for cooking in the kitchen. We have gathered a few examples of lamps that are suitable for the kitchen – both in terms of style, the best light sources and which types of kitchen lighting you can choose from. A kitchen should have general lighting but also bright light for working as well as cosy mood lighting.
48 // LIGHT-POINT Magazine
General lighting The most common form of general lighting is a ceiling lamp or pendant lamp. This is what provides the central light source and illuminates the room. SLIM is an elegant, discreet and efficient light source, which illuminates the room effectively with a soft, warm and diffused light.
The correct work lighting Lighting is essential when cooking in the kitchen. It needs to be bright and have the right tone in order for you to see every detail. Choose a pendant lamp like ZERO S, which offers a concentrated light on the tabletop while at the same time fitting discreetly into the decor.
Remember the cosy atmosphere Mood lighting brings character and atmosphere to your kitchen and can often be combined with general lighting using a dimmer. Give your kitchen a contemporary atmosphere with STICK and its simple, sculpted shape that can be used both for ceilings and walls. The direction of the light can be adjusted, and the lamp creates a beautiful, diffuse light. Choose the right colour temperature When it comes to choosing your kitchen lighting, it is important you know what colour temperature you want – this is crucial for both mood and function. Practical lighting in the kitchen If you need light for hands-on work, the best idea is to use a neutral white colour to get ideal work lighting. Mood lighting in the kitchen If you need light for more cosy moments, you are best off using a warm, white colour that feels homely and is easy on the eye. Home // 49
A lamp for every situation Your living room is the heart of the home and it needs to be able to work for v arious situations. That is why it is important for you to create the right atmosphere with living room lamps. The SPIRIT T1 table lamp has a ‘touchless switch & dimming’ function, which means it can be switched on and off or dimmed simply by waving your hand behind it. That way, you can adjust the light depending on the situation.
Create art with wall lamps Wall lamps can be practical, functional and decorative, and depending on the expression you are looking for you can use one or several wall lamps as a sort of art installation. Wall lamps are e specially good for living rooms that lack floor space or for use as wall decorations. Use the NOHO collection with lamps of varying sizes and colours that can be installed as a beautiful light sculpture.
Living room The lighting in your living room has a huge impact on how you perceive the space, and you can easily change the atmosphere in your living room with appropriate lighting. A good idea is to use multiple lamps that can be turned on and off as needed and has the option of dimming. Combine functional reading lights and pleasant ambient lighting.
Find your perfect floor lamp Give your living room a pleasant light, which is both cosy and practical with a beautiful floor lamp. The SPIRIT F1 floor lamp is the perfect living room lamp placed next to sofas or armchairs. SPIRIT F1 is designed in a characteristic, three-dimensional expression that will create a timeless look in any home. 50 // LIGHT-POINT Magazine
Place bedside lamps on each side of the bed Reading requires a relatively bright and concentrated light. The light should allow you to see well, but at the same time not light up the whole room. TULIP is ideal as an alternative bedside lamp that also gives your b edroom an exciting look. Extend and angle the lamp however you want to get the best possible lighting.
Bedroom The bedroom can be one of the biggest challenges in terms of lighting for your home. The light needs to be simultaneously atmospheric and relaxing, while at the same time giving you the opportunity to use it for reading or getting dressed. We recommend a good, general light source that is not blinding. For the wardrobe, you will need to find a lamp that has a brighter light, and for the bedside you will need a clear and concentrated light.
Use spots by the wardrobe For wardrobes and mirrors, it is a good idea to choose a light source that gives you a clear light with good colour reproduction. Here, you can choose to use integrated furniture lighting or spotlights. The VANTAGE spotlight can be angled 90º from its mount and can rotate almost 360º giving you maximum lighting flexibility compared to a traditional, fixed spotlight.
Decorative lighting SOHO is an untraditional interpretation of the classic, round wall lamp. SOHO has five different sizes each installed with a small distance from the wall allowing you to make overlapping patterns. With reflective lighting and countless configurations, you can create a beautiful light installation that also illuminates the room appropriately. Home // 51
Creative, indirect light Since we typically start and end the day in front of the bathroom mirror, good lighting around the mirror is just as important as the general lighting. STICK is a sculptural lamp that can be installed above the mirror or next to it in a vertical position. The LED light source is mounted to the back of the aluminium rail, which is installed at a slight distance from the wall. This creates a sculptural, indirect light that is perfect for your bathroom.
Bathroom A bathroom can be at least as cosy or well-lit as all the other rooms in your house. In the bathroom you need time for relaxation and the right bathroom lighting plays an important role here. It is a good idea to have several light sources that provide an even light throughout the room.
Look sharp with spots Installing spotlights in the ceiling will give you a uniform light that illuminates the entire room. OPTIC OUT comes in two different sizes that can be easily combined. The spot provides a soft light, which works well as general lighting. 52 // LIGHT-POINT Magazine
Before you start Remember to look for the IP certification When deciding where to install light sources in your bathroom, it is important that you stick to the rules for installing lamps in a wet room. Often you cannot use any type of lighting for all places in the bathroom. The usage depends on the IP certification, which tells you how well a device can withstand things like dust or water.

LIGHT-POINT has been creating light for 25 years, and we are constantly looking for new ideas and new ways of thinking about lighting. This is the creativity that we would like to share as inspiration in our new, beautiful showroom on the corner of Gothersgade and Borgergade. Here, our 800-square-metre flagship store complete with two floors of design inspiration welcomes you with expert advice and guidance, whether you are looking for a single lamp or complete lighting for all parts of your home. We created the showroom based on the idea that it should form the best possible framework for our design – in the

characteristic mix of Nordic aesthetics and the industrial functionalism of our design. Take a seat in our lounge, where you can enjoy the atmosphere and take the time to look at our different designs. The displays allow you to fully experience the lighting functions and compositions as it would work in your own home. If you are in Copenhagen, visit our showroom to experience our designs and get advice from our lighting consultants. If Copenhagen is not on your way, you can always visit our knowledgeable dealers around the world.

An anniversary collection Since the mid-1990s, LIGHT-POINT has created innovative lighting design for both the Danish and international markets. The Rose Gold collection was developed to cele brate LIGHT-POINT’s 25th anniversary, and although the result may seem very simple, its journey was a challenge. “We wanted to launch a collection in a completely new colour, thus adding an unprecedented hue and new dimension to our universe. We wanted a colour that would both provide a welcome alternative to the many white and black lamps available but also add something extra to the décor,” explains Ronni Gol. Rose Gold – like no other After much deliberation, the choice fell on the shade Rose Gold. It is a colour that can be difficult to put into words; instead, it should be experienced. “Rose Gold contains warm, soft shades that fit perfectly into our design language. It is not copper, not pink, and not brown, but somewhere in between these colours. However, we chose to make our Rose Gold a little d arker and deeper in expression, so that it b ecomes its very own,” describes Nital Patel, Head of Design at LIGHT-POINT. The collection consists of pendant, wall, floor, table, and ceiling lamps. All are made with a lightly brushed surface that not only reflects the new colour, but also adds a touch of exclusivity and luxury. Design Portrait // 61

Q&A with Ronni Gol
Danish design. Innovation. International aesthetics. These are some of the words used to describe the Danish design company LIGHT-POINT. Since 1995, they have been creating designer lamps of the highest quality with a strong design language. With 25 years of in the industry much has happened, and we have asked Ronni Gol, the Founder and CEO of LIGHT-POINT, about the history of his company and what the future holds. How did the transition from distributor of design to designing your own product come about? Innovation and the creative process was actually the starting point for the development we have gone through. To begin with, we were distributing lamp designs that came from Italy amongst others. But after several years with unsatisfying quality and products, that did not live up to our high standards, we decided to start developing our own products. This was both in order to secure a better quality but also for us to take control of the design process. Why do you think you have such a strong position in the market? I always look at each product from the perspective of a consumer. The material, our design and the function has been at the heart of every product brought to market. It has always been our ambition to position the products at a medium to high price point whilst r etaining the premium quality. We have also received the prestigious Red Dot Award four times, which is a huge recognition of our work and thoughts.
How did your flagship store become a destination for international design? Our flagship store has been a part of the Copenhagen design scene for many years, and a lot of people know of our showroom. In 2019, we did an extensive remodeling introducing a new, international expression as well as expanding to 800m2. We have successfully combined Danish design with international innovation, and our exhibition changes continuously in order to keep inspiring visitors. What does the design process typically look like? Today, we design and produce almost all of our products and in 2018 we hired the British designer Nital Patel to lead of design department ensuring a co ntinuous international strategy. For us, lighting design is more than just form and function. It is concerned with how products can enhance the environment they are in, whether that is indoors or o utdoors. We design, produce and distribute innovative lighting products in an ultra-modern, distinctly Danish design style focusing on the unique emotive experience. What does the future hold for LIGHT-POINT? The distinctive design style of LIGHT-POINT is constantly unfolding and after Nital joined us the design language of our products has been greatly strengthened. Our design collection is embarking on the next journey, so is our position and visibility in the market. We already have various agents all over Europe and the number is constantly growing. We are now aiming to enter the US and Canada, which is both a challenging and exciting new chapter for LIGHT-POINT.
