Louis Poulsen meets New York
A room with a view
What happens when Louis Poulsen’s Scandinavian Lighting philosophy crosses an ocean and lands on the 13th floor of a Manhattan building – one with spectacular windows that let in skyline views by day and enchant with New York City glitter by night?
This is the setting for the stunning new Carl Hansen & Son showroom, which, in addition to displaying an extraordinary collection of modern furniture, is lit from within by Louis Poulsen. Designed to look and feel like a New York City loft – complete with kitchen, dining room, living room and lounge areas – the showroom invites visitors to experience how Scandinavian design aesthetics interact with, transform, and become a natural part of an urban hub environment.
The result is nothing short of stunning. On sunny days, with warm light streaming in, the Louis Poulsen designs become part of the sculptural interior landscape, mirroring and playfully interacting with the organic curves of iconic Danish furniture designs. As evening approaches, the diverse, task-focused lights work together to illuminate their designated spaces while creating a visual connection to the lit-up buildings and bridges outside.
All the elements in the space, in short, are in constant, quiet conversation to support the natural flow of life and create a sense of intimacy and connection. As only great design can.
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.
