Feel at home
We all know the sense of feeling safe and welcome in a place. No one has refined the art of giving guests a good impression than the hospitality industries such as hotels and restaurants. Comfortable surroundings lead to a good experience and the desire to come back. Whether we visit because of business or pleasure we feel at ease and calmed down, if there is a home-like atmosphere.
A feast for
When we go out to dine, we need to be able to see the food and wine in their right colours so they wake our senses and whet our appetite. If the light is too bright, like in a fast-food restaurant, we will eat much, and leave early. But if the atmosphere is right, and we experience intimacy even in a room full of people, we will linger over the table for hours and maybe even decide to order a dessert.
And not only should the food look great, our dining partner needs to be seen in a flattering light as well, and this is an important part of our light philosophy: that our light creates the best possible ambience, which makes people and spaces look beautiful.
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.Read More
Arne Jacobsen’s AJ
The AJ table, floor and wall lamps were designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1957 for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, where they were an integral part of his overall design for the hotel. Arne Jacobsen (1902-1971) is one of Denmark’s most famous and recognized architects and designers and is viewed as one of the key people behind modernism.

Its design is based on Poul Henningsen’s iconic principle of the reflective three-shade system, which directs the majority of the light downwards. The shades are made of deep-drawn aluminium with white inner surface that ensures gentle, downward light distribution. The downward light is both soft and pleasant and 100% glare free.

Hotel Bella Sky
A design stay
A striking piece of architecture and the largest hotel in Scandinavia, with 23 floors, 812 rooms and 30 meeting spaces and conference rooms. Bella Sky is comprised of two towers, with turning facades, joined by a walkway.
Also its interior is an interesting experience with many Danish design icons, such as the AJ lamp placed on walls and desks in all rooms. The contour of the lampshade enters into a dialogue with the angles and triangle shapes of the building.
