At the heart of the LP Xperi design is the belief that a street luminaire must be beautiful when lit – and visually interesting when switched off. As such, the LP Xperi post top for residential and local roads offers a 24/7 experience to passersby. In the daytime, the LP Xperi’s open, geometric design captures the sun’s rays and filters them through the luminaire – while also offering an ever-changing view of the sky through the ribs. As darkness falls, the LP Xperi ignites a luminous mix of modern design elements, materials, and technology.

 

Conceived as a refined design concept for residential and local roads, the energy efficient, top-mounted LP Xperi is distinguished by a geometric yet organic form.

 

From long distances, the top ribs of the luminaire can be slightly seen. As one moves closer, the underside of the fixture's ribs becomes visible, with the ribs serving as reflectors that are gentle on the eyes – while directly illuminating the space beneath them with centrally-positioned LEDs.
LP Xperi is an aluminum luminaire consisting of a single element, which makes it easy to install. The design comes with a range of asymmetrical and symmetrical light profiles that provide optimal, even illumination of different road geometries while meeting local safety requirements.

 

LP Xperi will be available in the Fall of 2018.

 

About Christian Flindt

Christian Flindt (b. 1972) began working with Louis Poulsen in 2006 and has since developed the Flindt 220 Floor lamp, the Flindt 220 Pendant, the Flindt 475 Pendant, the Flindt Bollard, and LP Grand family.
Flindt graduated with an MAA and MDD from Aarhus School of Architecture in 2002 and opened his own design studio in 2003. He places a strong emphasis on communication between people – a focus that's expressed in his approach to rethinking furniture and product design, resulting in products that inspire people to make new connections. Flindt’s fresh and daring designs in conventional constructions reveal his innovative approach and his courage to experiment. His work with LED design, for example, has repeatedly highlighted his ability to connect disparate fields such as lighting and furniture design.

 

Flindt has exhibited his work and participated in trade fairs all over the world. He 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.
