About this product

Nyhavn Wall was designed by Alfred Homann and Ole V. Kjær in 1976. Nyhavn Wall won a prize in a competition held by Louis Poulsen for lighting in old and heritage urban areas. Alfred Homann had worked on drawings and models prior to the competition, which meant that he and his colleague, Ole V. Kjær, were able to submit material within just five days. Alfred Homann explains the idea behind the wall fixture: ‘It was important that the fixture was smaller and more discreet than the other products on the market at that time.’ The light is characterised by a cone-shaped shade and three anti-glare rings which emit soft light directed upwards.
