<p>Using the popular cylindrical Flindt Bollard as his starting point, Danish designer Christian Flindt has created the stunning new Flindt Wall: a circular, wall-mounted fixture that brings bold, sculptural illumination to both indoor and outdoor spaces. Based on the same carved-out design as the Flindt Bollard, the Flindt Wall continues this elegant aesthetic, sending a gentle glow in multiple directions.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Like the Flindt Bollard, the Flindt Wall is distinguished by a light egress from an opening in the top that sends light from two LED bulbs down the front of the fixture, illuminating the surrounding space and creating a subtle, glowing ring of reflected light along the fixture&rsquo;s rim. A portion of the light is also distributed up and back, creating an indirect lighting component in the shape of a half-moon.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>These multiple effects create attractive and subtle, yet strong, luminance as well as a warm, inviting ambiance. The Flindt Wall can be placed at any level based on the desired effect and location. Indoors, it&rsquo;s ideal for entryways, hallways, stairwells, and other spaces that call for gentle illumination. Outdoors, it mounts beautifully on any wall to light up terraces, yards, driveways &ndash; and of course the walls and buildings themselves. Combining the Flindt Wall and Flindt Bollard to illuminate paths and buildings creates a modern, unified aesthetic.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&ldquo;Light means so much to people and so profoundly influences our experiences that it&rsquo;s essential to get it right, and to design with the specific setting and desired effect in mind,&rdquo; says Christian Flindt. &ldquo;We all have different light preferences &ndash; but when the sun goes down, I think we all enjoy having a certain warmth and ambiance around us. And that was our ultimate goal here, first with the cylindrical Flindt Bollard, and now with the orbital Flindt Wall. We wanted to create comfort and avoid glare while creating multi-directional light that guides and illuminates as much it pleases the eye. Like a solar eclipse, it&rsquo;s remarkable yet perfectly natural in its environment &ndash; an important balance in lighting design.&rdquo;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Flindt worked with a combination of software, 3D printing, and metal casting to ensure the ideal balance between proportions, curves, and light in the three sizes of the Flindt Wall. From the side, the Flindt Wall resembles a slim ellipse consisting of two overlapping ovals. The oval shape is lifted off the mounting surface, giving the fixture a light, floating appearance. The Flindt Wall is available in aluminium gray, white, and corten-colored.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;The Flindt Wall will be available from October 2018.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h4>About Christian Flindt</h4> <p>Copenhagen-based lighting, furniture, and industrial designer Christian Flindt (b.1972) have established an international reputation with his fresh, daring designs, and an experimental approach geared toward inspiring new connections between people. Flindt graduated with an MAA and MDD from the Aarhus School of Architecture in 2002 and opened his design studio in 2003. He began working with Louis Poulsen in 2006, developing the Flindt 220 floor lamp, the Flindt 220 pendant, the Flindt 475 pendant, the Flindt Bollard, the LP Grand pendant, and the Flindt Wall. His work with LED design has repeatedly highlighted his ability to connect disparate fields such as lighting and furniture design. Flindt has earned numerous prizes for his designs, including the Bolig Magasinet Design Award for his Flindt range for Louis Poulsen, and the 2014 ELFORSK Prize from the Danish Department of Energy and Electricity for the Flindt Bollard.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h4>About Louis Poulsen</h4> <p>Founded in 1874, Danish lighting manufacturer Louis Poulsen creates products that encompass the duality of design and light. Every detail in the design has a purpose. Every design starts and ends with light. Louis Poulsen offers a range of lighting aimed atthe commercial and domestic lighting markets, with lighting fixtures and solutions for both indoor and outdoor applications.
