This autumn we launch new design by GamFratesi, the VL 38-family in black and Doo-Wop in beautiful metals.

Yuh by GamFratesi

Celebrating Louis Poulsen’s philosophy of designing to shape light and inspired by the classic virtues of Danish design, Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi, who make up GamFratesi, the most stirring design duo of our time, have designed a lamp dubbed Yuh.

With an impressive knowledge of design history and inspired by Poul Henningsen’s philosophy about light, combined with Arne Jacobsen’s geometric shapes, GamFratesi pay homage to the legends and add their own characteristic aesthetic playfulness to the new Yuh Lamp.

Yuh - personal light

One of the essential features of the lamp is that it is personal. The lamp is flexible and takes up very little space. It rotates, rises and drops, illuminating and creating ambience in the required area. A lamp created just around you.

Yuh is available from September 2017 and comprises a table lamp, a floor lamp and a wall lamp, which are all available in white or black.

VL38 - now in black

When Vilhelm Lauritzen designed the VL38 light for Radiohuset in Copenhagen in the 1930s, he probably did not dream of the success the small curved lamp would be experiencing 80 years later. Last year we relaunched the table lamp with a white shade, and added a floor and wall lamp. We are now extending the family to include a black version, that adds an edge to the soft look and contrast to any interior.

The arms of the lamps are made of brass and the shade is painted white on the inside to ensure a soft, comfortable light. With two light levels, the lamp emits a directed downward light and the angle of the shade can be adjusted to optimise light distribution. All the lamps have been fitted with LED light sources to accommodate contemporary advances in light technology and energy efficiency.

The VL38 table, wall and floor lamps in black and brass will be available in stores from September 2017.

Doo-Wop in new metals

You would never guess that Doo-Wop was designed in 1952 for the Danish Navy’s buildings, because it is timeless and unique. We are now launching two new versions of the harmonious light, made of polished copper and steel, which beautifully reflect the surroundings. The two new metal versions join the existing brass version, and look great alone or in combination – like the other members of the family.

The new metal versions will be available in stores from September 2017.

Design to Shape Light

Louis Poulsen has always sought, not only to design lamps, but also to shape light and create an atmosphere that makes people feel good, both in- and outdoors. The shape of light creates space and our products should live harmoniously within the space they define - indirect, soft and inviting.
