In 1924, Poul Henningsen created his influential Paris lamp for Louis Poulsen, and the origin of how we still design to shape light can directly be traced back to his views on the dualities of design and light.
We believe in passionate craftsmanship that produces quality lighting and design products that are pleasing to the eye and to the light.
In close partnership with designers, architects and other talents like Poul Henningsen, Arne Jacobsen, Verner Panton, Øivind Slaatto, Alfred Homann, Oki Sato and Louise Campbell, we have established ourselves as one of the key global suppliers of architectural and decorative lighting. Defying traditional product categories, our products serve and span the professional and private lighting markets for both indoor and outdoor applications.
Our means are simple and beautiful design. Our purpose is to create an attractive ambience that affects people and spaces.
We design to shape light.
Founded in 1874, Louis Poulsen is a Danish lighting manufacturer born out of the Scandinavian design tradition where form follows function. The function and design of our products are tailored to reflect and support the rhythm of natural light. Every detail in the design has a purpose. Every design starts and ends with light.

When Poul Henningson presented the prototype of PH Septima in 1928, the sound of applause reverberated through the Danish Museum of Decorative Art where the unveiling took place. This year, in celebration of Henningson’s heritage, Louis Poulsen is reintroducing a modern version of the original design. And the second round of applause is imminent.
Lighting has always played a pivotal role in creating functional, comfortable and beautiful interiors, but incorporating high-quality lighting at places of work, educational facilities and institutions has never been more critical. As the traditional role of the indoors undergoes a dynamic transformation, architects, interior designers and lighting experts are recognising the augmented role of light in designing spaces for the new reality.
