Designed for evolution
We based our original Toldbod Pendant on the philosophy that the simpler the design, the greater its flexibility. The Toldbod 120 colour range pushes this concept even further with a subdued new palette of fresh, modern hues.
A softer side of Toldbod 120
A suite of sophisticated new colours gives the 120 mm Toldbod an even more versatile profile, in line with contemporary aesthetics and design trends.
The precise, familiar pendant hangs comfortably on its own – and works beautifully in multiples. Like it in a single hue? Perfect. A mixed palette? That works too, as do solo, in-a-row, or scattered arrangements. This ability to work together was an essential consideration in developing the new colour suite: the Black, White, Dark Rose, Light Grey, and Blue-Grey options cover a wide range, yet belong to the same visual family, playing off one another to create a dynamic array.
Toldbod 120 is a natural fit for a variety of architectural styles and environments, from kitchens, dining and living rooms to hallways, offices and bedrooms – and discreet enough to work with other fittings. However it’s styled, the classic form opens up new possibilities and inspires us to reimagine our spaces.
Smooth all over, in look, feel and illumination
The Louis Poulsen design team developed the Toldbod 120 in 2009, basing the design on its predecessors, the Toldbod 290 from 1982, and the Toldbod 155 from 2006. The entire Toldbod family uses a sophisticated light reflector based on the PH Ellipse reflector: the last street light concept conceived by legendary lighting designer Poul Henningsen, and one that has also proven excellent for interior use.
The reflector ensures glare-free, uniformly distributed and diffused light, ideal for both focused task lighting and general room ambience. The Toldbod directs the majority of light downward, true to Henningsen’s philosophy of shaping light to brighten spaces – and never shining directly into people’s eyes.
The Toldbod 120 pendant is made of durable cast aluminium. A powder-coated surface gives the pendant a soft, silk matt finish and ensures easy maintenance.
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.
