Inside Louis Poulsen's Copenhagen HQ
As the property is listed, it required an in-depth understanding and respect for the building to create illumination that brings together and lifts the architecture and the functions of the different rooms. In this case, it’s all about creating illumination that is comfortable and efficient for our employees and visitors.
Every single room and floor is illuminated in different ways, but common to them all is the focus on functionality – and then there is a connecting thread in the form of the light fixtures’ colour, which is a subdued black, white and grey.
Research shows that our bodies and minds react naturally to changes in the illumination around us. When we are exposed to higher colour temperatures and brighter light, we feel more awake and become more alert. However, it’s not good for us to spend our entire working day in an environment with high colour temperatures. Louis Poulsen has therefore installed light fixtures with Kelvin Adjustable, which covers a colour temperature spectrum ranging from 2,700 to 5,700 kelvin, making it possible to simulate daylight from morning to evening, while also being able to vary the brightness (lux) during the day.
