  • New Lighting from Louis Poulsen

    Fall 2016 product launches are happening now and we want to bring three very special releases from Louis Poulsen to your attention.

    This season Louis Poulsen is launching a mini-version of the iconic Panthella lamp with a diameter of 10". The Panthella Mini Table Lamp features painted metal shades in ten eye-popping colors from designer Verner Panton's own color spectrum and one opal white acrylic finish.

    dinesen-07_1 Panton-fever is still going strong. Verner Panton originally developed the Panthella lamp in 1971. He wanted to have the Panthella launched with a metal shade, but this was not technologically possible at that time. In 2016 Louis Poulsen has re-launched the Panthella Lamp, with its trumpet-shaped foot, to become a true design icon with a colourful edge to it.

    dinesen-17_1 The Panthella Mini fits almost any space. It emits a soft and comfortable illumination.

    Louis Poulsen has also launched a new series of pendant lamps in collaboration with the Swedish designer and graphic artist Clara Von Zweigbergk. The striking aluminium CIRQUE Collection includes three colour combination in three sizes.

    cirque-_rhus-05 The CIRQUE Collection was inspired by a trip to Tivoli in Copenhagen. Tivoli is full of carousels, candyfloss makers and wheels of fortune. When an object spins round very fast, the colours merge and end up being perceived as horizontal bands of colour. All these impressions resulted in a vibrant design which unites unconventional colours and forms in a series of truly innovative lamps which will add both edge and charisma to their surroundings – both in daylight and when lit.

    cirque-_rhus-15_1 Chosen as a Top 20 Best Designs at the 2016 Stockholm Furniture Fair, the fixture provides a downward glare-free soft light by means of the white lacquered inner reflector.

    Another 2016 release from Louis Poulsen is the VL45 Radiohus Pendant Lamp, designed by Vilhelm Lauritzen in the 1930s, for the construction of the Radiohuset building in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen. With its powerful downwards light combined with gentler illumination via the opal glass – which generates softer tones in the room – it is simply ideal for illuminating both everyday objects and more decorative items.

    Classic and beautiful, the globe shade is made of smooth opal glass and almost completely encases the light source emitting a beautiful, diffuse, glare-free illumination.

    Magis

    Magis gives you more choices—for indoors and out, for the lounge, the café, the patio, the lobby and the classroom. By combining craft with industrial process Magis products deliver beyond expectations. It makes sense since Magis means “more than” in Latin. While delivering more, Magis uses less—material and energy—a commitment Magis shares with Herman Miller.

     

    dog_house Magis works with top designers from around the world, such as Hong Kong based Michael Young who, in 2001, designed a fun and very functional doghouse.

     

    Designed by the Milan firm Design Group Italia, the Magis Lyra Stool owes a lot to the way Charles Eames used bent wood.

    Mattiazzi

    Among contemporary furniture manufacturers, Mattiazzi, the family owned producer of wooden furniture in Udine, Italy, is uncommon. While many producers rely on third party factories and work in diverse materials, Mattiazzi operates with their own machines and has developed a healthy obsession for woodworking. Founded in 1978, Mattiazzi has steadily cultivated its local manufacturing culture.

     

    Designed by Konstantin Grcic, the low slung Medici Chair is a love song to the material - wood. Says Grcic, “I like the idea of wood cut into planks, which is how it is processed in the first place: the tree slices into planks.” Available in four finish options.

    Geiger

    In 1964 John Geiger was building furniture by hand—while building a culture of quality that flourishes today. His love of and respect for the materials he worked with set new international standards in wood furniture manufacturing. Today, Geiger’s excellent reputation for design, engineering and craftsmanship continues to enhance business interiors with an elegant and intelligent portfolio of great design for the modern office.

    Maharam

    Maharam was founded in 1902 by Louis Maharam, a Russian immigrant to the US.

GRShop and Gabriel Ross offer Maharam's pillows and cushions to add colour and fun to your rooms.

    It certainly looks like Verner Panton had a lot of fun in his lifetime, 1926-1998. He was an inspirational and colorful personality. A unique person with a special sense of color, shape, and light. Born in Denmark and trained as an architect, Panton worked at Arne Jacobsen’s architectural practice, setting up his own design studio in 1955. Verner Panton started by designing lamps for Louis Poulsen. The first lamp to be put into production was the Topan lamp in 1959, followed by the Moon Lamp. Verner Panton went on to design colourful seating systems, tables, rugs, and wall sculptures.

    The original and radical spirit of the 1960s continued to shape Panton's work to the end of his life. Encouraged by the revival of the '60s in the 1990s, Panton believed that imagination would once again enter the furniture design world. It seems imagination and fantasy is in full flower these days, unfortunately Panton is no longer here to witness this current period of design experimentation.
