NJP thrives in a gray zone
Futuristic yet familiar: the NJP in Alu Gray. Conceived as a new interpretation of the classic architect’s lamp, the popular NJP family expands with a soft, versatile Light Alu Gray version for forward-thinking modern interiors.
The epitome of human design
In designing the NJP lamp, nendo’s Oki Sato sought to unite a sense of instant recognition with the appeal of the never-before-seen. The resulting design achieves just that, pairing an organically-shaped head with a geometric stem, and adding ultra-adjustable arm joints and a hidden timer function.
The new Light Alu Gray sequel to the original black and white versions shows a softer side of the minimalist NJP, beautifully balancing the inherent coolness of metal and the warmth of an inviting, soft gray.
In both design and functionality, the NJP serves as an ideal task light for workspaces, bedrooms, and living areas, bringing versatility and simple, elegant, user-centric design.
Smart and flexible, head to foot
The lamp’s applications and visual impact have been considered in every detail. The head and arms, for instance, offer great flexibility and make it easy to find an ideal position, whether at a desk, by a bed, or in a seating area. The exposed springs at the arm joints add to the NJP’s decorative expression. In addition to defining the NJP’s silhouette, the head reflects some of the light through the rear, illuminating the top of the arm – and also cools the LED lamps through its top vent.
The NJP features built-in LED technology and, despite its compact size, spreads its softly diffused, glare-free, and high-quality light over a large area.
Oki Sato, head of the renowned Japanese nendo design studio, is known for infusing minimalist forms with memory-arousing details, and for using soft, friendly shapes that make his designs appear instantly suited to their environment. The NJP lamp exemplifies this approach with its familiar, chimney-shaped head design.
Born in 1977 in Toronto, Canada, Sato founded nendo design studio in 2002. Unlike many iconic, minimalist designers who are guided primarily by the "form follows function" mantra, Sato finds it essential to look at the history behind the product and its design. Each element needs to make sense and contribute to a complete story, it's a design credo that adds a compelling angle to each new Oki Sato design.
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.
