• 100% glare-free light • symmetric light distribution • the combination of matte undersurfaces and shiny top surfaces gives the fixture a characteristic light intensity • suitable for large rooms, high ceilings, stairwells, etc. • suitable for repetitive installations • timeless design • great architectural versatility
The fixture provides 100% glare-free light. The geometrical, spherical design is based on the principle of illuminating all surfaces at the same angle. This ensures uniform light around the fixture, illuminating both walls and ceiling. Matte painted undersurfaces and glossy top surfaces result in an attractive reflection of the diffused light, creating uniform light distribution around the fixture.
White, wet painted.
Poul Henningsen designed his first lights back in 1925-1926 for an exhibition in Paris. His work with Louis Poulsen continued right up until his death in 1967. Throughout his life, PH sought to create glare-free light, direct light where it was most needed, and create soft shadows, using incandescent bulbs as a light source. PH Louvre was designed for the Adventist Church in Skodsborg, Denmark in 1957. The globe-shaped fixture is made up of 13 shades mounted on four supports. It is a simplification of an earlier light Poul Henningsen designed in 1942, called the Spiral.
