Louis Poulsen Lighting

Danish

Louis Poulsen is world-renowned as an innovator in modern Danish lighting, but this wasn’t the goal from the start. Founded in 1874 by Ludvig R. Poulsen as a wine importer, the business went through several incarnations before its first pendant lights came to fruition. Through its designs, the company helped establish the foundations of good lighting — function, comfort and ambience — that are now standard in modern furniture design.

In 1924, Danish architect Poul Henningsen partnered with Louis Poulsen & Co., then an electrical supply company, to create what’s now known as the Paris lamp. This design, which incorporated three layers of curved metal disks, created ambience with its indirect light instead of glare. Shown at the 1925 Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes in Paris — the exhibition that brought Art Deco design to worldwide attention — the Paris lamp was awarded a gold medal. This led to Poulsen and Henningsen working together on several lighting pieces, including the popular PH pendant light with its concentric shades for the Forum Building in Copenhagen. These high-profile projects helped make Louis Poulsen a go-to purveyor of innovative lighting design.

One of the company’s most well-known lamps is Henningsen’s PH Artichoke lamp (1958), with its 72 copper leaves artfully placed to conceal the light bulb, prevent glare and promote a warm, alluring glow in any room. Another is the steel and die-cast zinc AJ lamp (1960), which Arne Jacobsen designed with an adjustable angled shade for his commission for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. The company has also worked with notables such as Verner Panton and Alfred Homann as well as, more recently, Louise Campbell and Oki Sato.

In 2010, the company was awarded the American Institute of Architects’ Honors in Collaborative Achievement Award; it was the first lighting manufacturer to receive this honor. In 2018, the company was acquired by an investment subsidiary of Investindustrial VI L.P. Still headquartered in Denmark, the brand continues to produce its high-end lighting for both indoor and outdoor use, manufacturing both classic icons as well as new designs. “We design to shape light,” states Louis Poulsen. In doing so, they have also shaped culture.

It becomes really hard to find a good PH lamps these days. _____________________________________________________________ Poul Henningsen est le fils illégitime de l'auteure Agnès Henningsen et de l'écrivain satirique Carl Ewald. Il a passé une enfance heureuse dans une maison moderne qui a été souvent visitée par les intellectuels de la région. Entre 1911 et 1917, Poul Henningsen suit une formation d’architecte sans pourtant en obtenir le diplôme. Durant les années 1920, Poul Henningsen a fait sa percée littéraire. Il a édité la revue Kritisk Revy (1926-1928, "Examen critique») dans laquelle lui et ses collègues méprisent le style ancien et le conservatisme culturel, reliant ainsi les thématiques politiques de l'époque . En même temps, il débute comme écrivain pour une revue sur les bienfaits d'une vie simple, en harmonie avec la nature et une sexualité plus libre . Il était l'homme qui a fait des revues danoises des armes politiques au service de aile gauche sans abandonner son caractère de divertissement (la soi-disant PH-revues 1929-1932). En 1933, il édita son ouvrage le plus célèbre Hvad med Kulturen? ("Qu'en est-il de la culture ?") Une critique polémique, audacieuse et urgente de la vie culturelle danoise avec son snobisme et sa nostalgie du passé, en dépit de tous les efforts de la percée du modernisme. Il a essayé de faire un parallèle entre la pruderie, moralisateurs et penchants fascistes; il a également accusé les sociaux-démocrates de manquer d'une ligne culturelle ferme et conséquente. Ce livre ainsi que ses activités dans son ensemble lui ont donné une réputation de semi-communiste ("compagnon de route"). Dans cette période, il se tenait en fait proche des communistes sans les rejoindre. Il a participé à la propagande anti-fasciste, en essayant toujours de faire des connexions entre la culture et la politique. Parmi ses autres initiatives durant cette période, il y a eu Danmarksfilmen en 1935, (en français : Le Film du Danemark) aussi connu comme Danmarksfilm PH. C'est un film sans prétention et non traditionnel dépeignant la vie contemporaine dans le Danemark d'une manière vivante et un peu irrespectueuse dans lequel les visuels sont saccadés par les rythmes de jazz. Il a été condamné et déchiré par la plupart des critiques, mais il est plus tard réhabilité et est devenu l'un des classiques des films documentaires danois. Il a également écrit des manuscrits de films. Pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale et l'Occupation allemande du Danemark il a gardé un profil bas et s'est enfui vers la Suède en 1943. Après la guerre, il s'est dissocié du communisme qui lui reprochant son humanitarisme de façade dans son attitude lors de l'accord conclu avec les nazis ainsi que pour son scepticisme croissant au sujet de l'Union soviétique et à bien des égards, il a été isolé. Cependant, il a continué à écrire et à débattre, et au cours des années 1960, la nouvelle génération à de nombreux égards a fait de lui une sorte de gourou. Dans ses dernières années, il est devenu un membre de l'Académie danoise et a soutenu le nouveau mouvement des consommateurs. À bien des égards, Poul Henningsen est l'homme qui a achevé les travaux de Georg Brandes...
