    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.
