LOUIS POULSEN NEW TO CULT

Coinciding with our 20 year anniversary, Cult is proud to introduce Danish lighting brand, Louis Poulsen, to the Cult collection with the partnership taking effect from 1 January 2017.


A leading supplier of architectural lighting, Louis Poulsen targets the professional and private lighting markets with lighting solutions for indoor and outdoor applications. Established in the 1920’s, the iconic lighting brand boasts designs from Danish design greats Poul Henningsen and Arne Jacobsen. Louis Poulsen’s approach to lighting lies in a very strict and uncompromising product philosophy based on function, comfort and ambience. The functional aspect of any fixture, the quality of the light itself, has to be resolved before addressing the shape and beauty of the lamp’s form. This philosophy continues to this day guiding the product design with a focus on human well-being and perception of artificial light to create unique lighting environments. In result Louis Poulsen lighting is stylistically both simple and refined, and blends seamlessly into most interior designs, modern and classic alike.

 

The Cult showrooms will soon be lit by iconic Louis Poulsen designs, including Poul Henningsen’s Artichoke, PH Snowball and PH 5, Arne Jacobsen’s AJ Series as well as contemporary designs from Louise Campbell, Nendo Studio and Øivind Slaatto.

 

The launch of Louis Poulsen across the Cult showroom will also include the new award-winning pendant ‘Patera’ designed by Øivind Slaatto. Intended to serve as a modern chandelier, Slaatto took inspiration from nature when making his design. “Patera was born of my fascination with the Fibonacci sequence. You can find the spiral pattern wherever you look in nature – in the seed formation in sunflowers and pine cones – and it has previously inspired Leonardo da Vinci, Johan Sebastian Bach and many other great artists from history,” shares Øivind Slaatto.

 

With its intricate design of differently positioned cells, Patera emits a soft, pleasant light whilst providing new impressions of the light when viewed from different angles.

 

From 1st of January 2017, Louis Poulsen will be available exclusively from Cult and our select distributor network.
