Form follows function

Inspired by the will to brighten up the darkness of the long nights of Scandinavian winter with the luminescence of summer, Louis Poulsen has always strived not to design lighting solutions, but to shape light in order to create beautiful atmospheres.

Where is it suitable to hang a Louis Poulsen pendant light?

Where to hang pendant lamp depends on quite a lot of things, but it all comes down to a matter of taste and function. A larger PH Artichoke pendant look great over the a wide bed, but this requires ceiling height. And a PH 5 looks great hanging low over your dinner table, spreading a pleasant light throughout the room while adding a beautiful visual element. But watch out for hanging it to low, as depending on your table you might have to develop the habit of watching your head when you get out of your chair. 

Pendant lights are great for living rooms, but can be hung wherever you find suitable. Just make sure to consider the height of the lamp and plan how high you should hang it.

The PH 5 Series of lamps was later developed by Louis Poulsen in his honour. Other true design classics followed, such as the AJ collection by Arne Jacobsen, and the moser series by Anu Moser.
