    Whether it is your home, office, a public space, or garden; modern, traditional, minimal, or industrial, there is a Louis Poulsen piece that will amplify your space aesthetically, and illuminate a story of its genesis.

    Louis Poulsen, well-known for sensational and innovative lighting design and manufacturing for over a century now, remains unwavering in its original Scandinavian design tradition, where form follows function.  Beginning with the ingenious creation of the PH lamp by Poul Henningsen in 1924, where Henningsen's use of multiple concentric shades as a way to create glare-free light became the cornerstone for how Louis Poulsen would define themselves conceptually.  Every detail serves a purpose; every light is designed to enhance both the space and the people in it.

    ph-5-aarhus-11 The classic PH 5 pendant lamp (seen here in White Classic ) emits both downward and lateral light, thus illuminating itself.

    Designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1960, the AJ Floor Lamp is considered one of the modern classics and is the perfect reading light with downward directed light and the ability to swivel the shade for optimum distribution.

    The Louis Poulsen Lighting Collection includes the Patera Light, The ball-shaped pendant floats like a majestic focal point in the room, spreading light in all directions. At first glance, it seems to be just a white, perforated ball, but closer inspection reveals its detailed design featuring a host of circles, angles and holes. Louis Poulsen's Patera Light, designed by Øivind Slaato, is at once the essence of simplicity and elegance, and yet technically so intricate and mathematically precise in its design.

    media-1026450-tg-40 The Pantella Floor and Table Lamp were designed by Verner Panton in 1971 and remain a Danish design staple to this day. Both the base as well as the shade act to reflect light, making for a soft diffused light that adds warmth to any room.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

  • Hail to the Chief!

    finn-juhl-chief2

    A showstopper in every way, the Chieftain Chair, designed by Finn Juhl in 1949, is undoubtedly the most iconic and expressive piece from the designer.   A departure from the strict functionalism that dominated Danish furniture at the time, the Chieftain placed form above all, taking cues from art, customs, and weaponry.  In 1949, it was truly modern.

    Dubbed "the big chair" by Juhl himself, at a meter wide, this is a piece to be reckoned with.

    Today, the Chieftain has been credited as one of the most important exponents of the Danish Modern movement in the US during the 1950s. For this reason, Finn Juhl is often considered to be the Grand Poobah of Danish Modern.  Seventy years later, while the sought-after originals fetch a handsome auction bid, the Chieftain chair is now made-to-order by the House of Finn Juhl, a design collective with exclusive rights to manufacture and produce forty of Juhl's classics.

    While some may balk at the hefty price tag on a Chieftain, a chair this exacting and complex takes a considerable amount of labour, highly-skilled craftspeople, and the highest quality materials.  Appreciating the combination of history, art, and craft that the chair represents it is no wonder that to this day it brings an unparalleled presence to any space it inhabits.

    Fit for kings and chieftains, but well-suited to anyone who can identify with the mounting pressures of ruling a village...
