Louis Poulsen PH5

18 March 2016 Permalink

For a limited time only, we are discounting the iconic PH5 suspension in white. This offer is only availble until April 23rd! Hurry...before time runs out!


Louis Poulsen PH5 Suspension


Designed by Poul Henningsen in 1958, the PH5 has become a well loved and universally recognised interior design feature. The suspension light came about originally to facilitate the use of any kind of light bulb, this was at a time when manufacturers would frequently change the size and shape of their light bulbs. Forcing design houses to adapt their styles to fit the ever changing incandescent lamp. Henningsen with his radical opinions created a light that didn’t have to change.


“For a generation I have believed that consideration for the consumer and common sense would prevail, but now I have become a fatalist. I have accepted fate, and with Louis Poulsen´s permission I have designed a PH fixture which can be used with any kind of light source, Christmas lights and 100 W metal-filament bulbs!”


Henningsen created the PH5 with the consumer in mind. The iconic shades were angled to prevent glare from any viewpoint. Small red and blue shades were inserted within to subdue the bright light, the colours were cleverly chosen because our eyes are least sensitive to these on the colour spectrum.


Since 1958 the PH5 family has grown. Louis Poulsen then added five new glossy colours on its 50th anniversary and renamed it the PH50. Four more matt colours were introduced to PH5, as of 2013.


The PH5 is one of the best selling items by Louis Poulsen, widely used in domestic and commercial interior design schemes. Its iconic design has made it the feature light of choice amongst designers and enthusiasts alike.

New Brand: Wästberg Lighting

26 January 2016 Permalink

New up and coming brand Wästberg launched their first collection in 2008, ever since it has grown in popularity and won numerous awards. Amongst these include the 2013 Wallpaper* Design Awards which Wästberg won for their contemporary Sempé collection.


Wastberg Chipperfield


The brand saw a lot of success with their collaborations with well known designers, as featured above is the Chipperfield w102 table lamp as created by famous architect David Chipperfield.


Wastberg CKR W131


CKR w131 suspension lights offer a unique form with a wide range of colours to choose from. Claesson Koivisto Rune designed these pendants mixing an old concept with new technology, creating a minimal yet surprisingly modern outcome. CKR’s compact form means they display very effectively as a cluster at different lengths.


Wastberg Sempe


Sempé w153 table lamp is part of the collection which won Wästberg a design award. This highly versatile lighting feature can be orientated as a table lamp, can be clamped on surfaces or mounted onto walls. Available in a wide selection of colours, there will be one to suit your space.


Wastberg Lindvall


Our favourite from the Lindvall collection is the w124s metallic suspension lights. Jonas Lindvall designed this archetypical lamp inspired by its original predecessors, such as the oil burners and kerosene lamps he grew up with.

Moooi Salago Suspensions


A fresh concept on mass production by designer Danny Fang, creating a suspension light made of Paper Mache which is a hand made craft taking time to master. This apposes the quick pace production of items made on a mass scale. This method of creating material means that each lamp is slightly unique as it is made by hand. The contemporary shape of this design makes it perfect for a wide range of interiors. Salago is available in 3 sizes and 4 colour finishes: green, natural, dark blue and grey.


Moooi Heracleum Small Big O


Moooi Heracleum Small Big O


The newest release from Moooi is the Heracleum Small Big O, the scaled down size of the popular Big O version.

This smaller O allows a diversity of situations to accommodate this stunning design, when the Big O was too big this new light can shine!
