Anders Straarup Jensen, lighting advisor at Louis Poulsen, says:

"Because the property is listed, it has required an in-depth understanding and respect for the building to create illumination that brings together and lifts the architecture and the functions of the different rooms. In this case, it’s all about creating illumination that's comfortable and efficient for our employees and visitors.

"Each room and floor is illuminated in different ways, but common to all of them is their focus on functionality – and then there's the common thread of the light fixtures’ color, which is a subdued combination of black, white, and gray. 

"Research shows that our bodies and minds react naturally to changes in the illumination around us. When we're exposed to higher color temperatures and brighter light, we feel more awake and become more alert. However, it’s not good for us to spend our entire workday in an environment with high color temperatures. Louis Poulsen has therefore installed light fixtures that are Kelvin Adjustable, which covers a color temperature spectrum ranging from 2,700 to 5,700 kelvin, making it possible to simulate daylight from morning to evening, while also being able to vary the brightness (lux) during the day."
