Louis Poulsen presents new lamp series

January 23, 2020

(Denmark) – Louis Poulsen and Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG Ideas) present the Keglen lamp series.

The key pieces in the Keglen series are four pendants (Ø175), (Ø250), (Ø400) and (Ø650) that each provide diffusion of light using a curved glass insert, which is built into and adapted to each version of the shade. 

The lamps all have a discreet, uniform opening at the top that allows a little light to flow gently upwards and emphasise the structure of the cord. The new lamp series is a further development of the ‘Tirpitz’ Pendant, which was the result of the first collaboration between Louis Poulsen and BIG Ideas. The pendant was created for the Tirpitz Museum in Blåvand, Denmark, which BIG designed for the Varde Museums, in 2017.

 “The main feature of the lamp is the organic shaped glass that sits perfectly beneath the cone as a small water droplet shaped by physics and cohesive forces in nature,” says Jakob Lange, Partner, BIG Ideas. “This way the distinctive cone-shaped shades ensure a glare-free downward light – just as the various versions provide the option of countless combinations in any interior, such as for example restaurants and meeting facilities.

Keglen is available with energy-saving LED lights in black and white. The new Keglen family will be available in stores from February 2020.
