Den flotte historie om Louis Poulsen
The story behind Louis Poulsen is quite spectacular. It goes all the way back to 1982, when Ludvig R. Poulsen opened a store at Istedgade – an iconic street in Copenhagen – selling electrical appliances. Shortly after, in 1896, he hires his nephew, Louis Poulsen. 10 years later, Louis Poulsen takes over the store, and here after the company is on the up and up. In 1924, Louis Poulsen establishes a partnership with Poul Henningsen. This co-lab became an instant success, and the collaboration has resulted in many genius lamps, such as the 3/2 and 2/1 lamps. Louis Poulsen as a company has kept developing through the years, and more collaborations has been established with known designers such as Verner Panton and Arne Jacobsen, which has made Louis Poulsen’s selection of lamps a very extraordinary one.
