LED our way
Our lighting philosophy can be abridged to just three letters. Standing for Function, Comfort and Ambience, FCAÂŽ encompasses a multi-tude of terms all of which are crucial in the manufacture of an original Louis Poulsen light ďŹ xture.
Light makes life, and life is lived in light. At Louis Poulsen, we never design in order to win awards, we do not look for inspiration in trends, but in our perception of lighting and aesthetics deďŹ ned in our lighting philosophy. Our lighting starts and ends with people. Decades of research and development have been invested in creating the highest quality lighting on a human and highly personable level.
life Life would not exist without light. Yet at Louis Poulsen we see light not only as a necessity, but also as an opportunity. As daylight fades, our lighting is designed to take over, adding new dimensions and creating vibrant spaces, both indoors and out. This ongoing development of artiďŹ cial lighting for the beneďŹ t of human well-being remains our greatest challenge.
lighting technology The most important feature of any Louis Poulsen ﬁxture. Each detail inﬂuences the construction and the light distribution. Each detail has a function. The product design humanises the light source and creates the feeling of comfort and ambiance. Louis Poulsen ﬁxture design is for the eyes only – in more than one way.

Intelligent lighting is often used to describe electronically-controlled lighting. We believe that all our lighting is intelligent. Based on an unique approach to light, which is maintained throughout the manufacturing process, our lighting philosophy requires that all aspects of a design are examined down to the smallest detail, giving the term intelligent lighting an extra dimension. SimpliďŹ ed in the rule â€“ no detail without a purpose.

r e s p e c t Updating a product is always done with the greatest respect for the originally designed lighting concept. At the same time all details still have to have a function. To be true to our product philosophy will always be the challenge, but at the same time the warranty for a solution focussing on people. This is why Louis Poulsen products maintain their power of attraction. No compromises â€“ only the best solution.
25% The basics of Louis Poulsen are to create solutions with the best possible comfort for human beings. The humanization of light sources includes many aspects, but the most important is to avoid obtrusive glare so it becomes easier to see and to be seen, and hence feeling secure and comfortable in a pleasant atmosphere. Therefore, the quality of light is not just measureable ďŹ gures but more the human experience of the light.

orbiter mini led Design: Jens Møller-Jensen Orbiter Mini has been copied all over the world and inspired myriad outdoor lighting solutions, but why settle for a copy when you can get the original? The lighting concept of Orbiter Mini has always been unique, and the challenge for the LED version was to maintain this extraordinary uniqueness especially in terms of glare-free lighting and the sense of feeling secure. The process has been long and challenging, as described earlier. The concept has been turned upside down, so it is now the LED that points downward that delivers 75% of the light spread on the pavement, the rest comes from the upper LED by the reﬂection of the top shield, this takes care of the area closer to the post. The antiglare ring now functions as the LED heat sink, and the stems cover the power supply cord. The famous Orbiter Mini idiom has been kept, so replacements in existing projects is possible without disturbing the overall perception of the lighting atmosphere.

Inspired by nature. design
with both functional and decorative lighting. LP Nest brings nature into the urban environment. The simplicity of the design ﬁts carefully into a variety of locations – and brings new life to the surroundings and its people. LP Nest is the newest post top from Louis Poulsen, also new in the way of thinking light. A nest carries the top plate which works as a reﬂector and the mechanical design ensures full glare control in addition to a good vertical light distribution. Again, like other Louis Poulsen post top luminaires, LP Nest keeps its graphical idiom whether lit or unlit. The dimensions secure a quiet appearance no matter where the ﬁxture is placed, and the light distribution makes it unique for any application.

charming light 400
Design: Peter Bysted The naval idiom comes from the bollards along the harbour quays. A pure functional object. The design expresses the function. No details without a purpose. This is Rubbie. Rubbie is, as the name indicates, made of rubber. It is both hard and soft at the same time, harder than your normal experience of rubber, soft compared to aluminium. The material has been tested for more than 5 years, and has shown a fantastic durability. Over the years, the material will become â€?designedâ€? by nature similar to the other bollard by Peter Bysted, the Bysted bollard made of corten steel. Rubbie is available with colour temperatures of 3000K (19W of system power) and 4000K (18W of system power). The light distribution is glare free, has an optimised vertical distribution which creates a friendly and secure experience for human beings. The height and the material also make the bollard useable as a relaxing object in the urban area.

kipp post led Design: Alfred Homann
Last year Kipp Wall and bollard celebrated their 10th anniversary. Since the beginning, the Kipp family has proven its uniqueness. Efﬁciency is part of the design, and the LED-versions are no exceptions. The matte opal diffuser ensures a non glaring light distribution. The design optimises the use of the light source whether it is a conventional light source or LEDs. Focusing on each detail the Alfred Homann way ensures both efﬁciency and product quality. The comfort is unique and the adaptability to all kinds of architecture and surroundings is a trade mark of Alfred Homann. The light distribution is symmetrical downwards. The relationship between the curved design of the top shade and the calculated distance to the LED ensures a uniform and wide distribution of light.

kipp bollard led Ø 115
Design: Alfred Homann An extremely good example of one of the important issues in the Louis Poulsen lighting philosophy – to have the same idiom both lit an unlit. As simple as it gets. But with a comfort for humans combined with rarely seen efﬁciency. As with the other member of the Kipp family, the sense of simplicity is the key to success. A fantastic adaptability to any surroundings whether architectural or nature. The light distribution is symmetrical downwards. The relationship between the curved design of the top shade and the calculated distance to the LED ensures a uniform and wide distribution of light. Furthermore, the freestanding position ensures superb 360° light distribution around the ﬁxture, so both the paths and the space behind are beautifully illuminated. 29

nyhavn park led custom design product
becomes a natural part of the project
Finish: White or natural painted aluminium, powder coated. Light source: 63W LED, 3000K or 4000K. Material: Shade: Spun aluminium. Enclosure: Injection moulded opal polycarbonate. Rings: Die cast aluminium. Top: Die cast aluminium. Weight: Max. 13 kg.
Design: Alfred Homann The Nyhavn family was established as a custom-design project. Tasked with making a new wall ﬁxture for the renovation of the old yards behind Nyhavn, Alfred Homann and a colleague designed the Nyhavn Wall ”to build a bridge between old architecture and modern lighting”. The LED version maintains the characteristic light of the Nyhavn family. All the ﬁxtures in the family cast direct downlight on the pavement, and the light emitted fades out evenly around the ﬁxture. The characteristic rings at the top of the ﬁxture serve two purposes. One is to retain the ﬁxture’s idiom when it is active; achieved because the gentle light emitted from the shades make the ﬁxture appear similar in both daylight and darkness. The other aim is to allow the light emitted from the top to serve as a guiding light when the post is placed along streets and paths.
Finish: Natural painted aluminium or graphite grey, powder coated. Light source: 37W LED, 4000K. Material: Enclosure: Injection moulded clear polycarbonate. Housing: Die cast aluminium. Top: Die cast aluminium. Post: Extruded aluminium. Base plate: Die cast aluminium. Weight: Max. 16 kg.
a champion of durable design and lighting
Design: Dan Borgen Hasløv Waterfront meets all architectural challenges. It broadens the meaning of adaptability. Fitting into the surroundings with an aesthetically silent appearance makes Waterfront a lighting statement. The robust design leaves no doubt about how the light distribution appears, and the simple idiom has a unique adaptability to all kinds of architecture, new as well as old. Waterfront is characterised by its diffused light distribution. The light emitted is glare-free and distributed downwards to create a symmetrical pattern on the ground. The rugged construction makes it suitable for use in public areas.

pagoda led Design: design-people Shortly described as comfort meeting function, and function that melts into the ambiance. Pagoda was born as an add-on to inground ﬁxtures, but the new LED version is designed as an onground ﬁxture. Four bolts and mains supply is all you need. The multi-functionality of the Pagoda, both a street-chair and a “bollard”, makes this product quite unique. The light distribution is a low area lighting that underlines and creates a very special atmosphere at squares, plazas, streets, etc. The simplicity of the design and the casting in one process makes the Pagoda extremely vandal resistant. The form protects the light source from direct vandalism.
Simplicity is the formula for this circular ﬁxture. The light source determines its shape; its function and the materials. The shape signals the illumination, and the illumination reinforces the shape. But don’t get fooled by the simplicity. Behind the glare-free light lies a unique way of distributing the light from the extremely glary LEDs. Foster + Partners launched a vision for the new light source in the Louis Poulsen lighting universe. The colour temperature is 3000°K and the light source consists of 30 LEDs. Because of the high demands Louis Poulsen places on the quality of light, it has been of utter importance to use only the best controlled LED’s regarding colour temperature. The ceiling rose hides a unique system for adjusting the balance of the ﬁxture quick and easy. The glass diffuser gives the product a light and exclusive appearance which gives the room a surprising and extraordinary atmosphere.
