INTRODUCING YUH BY GAMFRATESI:
The Yuh collection by GamFratesi for Louis Poulsen includes a Wall, Floor and Table lamp inspired by the iconic AJ lamp by Arne Jacobsen. Celebrating Louis Poulsen’s philosophy of designing to shape light, Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi, who make up GamFratesi, design Yuh – a table, floor and wall lamp collection.
One of the essential features of the lamp is that it is personal. The lamp is flexible and takes up very little space. It rotates, rises and drops, illuminating and creating ambience in the required area. With an impressive knowledge of design history and inspired by Poul Henningsen’s philosophy about light, combined with Arne Jacobsen’s geometric shapes, GamFratesi pay homage to the legends and add their own characteristic aesthetic playfulness to the new Yuh collection.
The lamp provides direct glare-free downward light, and the angle of the shade can be adjusted to optimise light distribution. The slim opening at the top of the shade provides soft, ambient upward illumination.

NEW MIXED METAL FINISHES FOR DOO-WOP:
Louis Poulsen shines a new light on the Doo-Wop, one of its most distinctive pendant shapes, with the introduction of two new metal finishes – Polished Copper and Stainless Steel.
Mixing metals is a simple method for adding depth and visual interest. Cool metallic tones, such as steel, bring a clean, modern aesthetic to a space, whilst warmer tones, such as copper and brass, are inviting and flattering. Single or mixed, the new versions of Doo-Wop in metal are adaptable, edgy and elegant.
The pendant was originally introduced in 1952 and designed in close partnership with the Danish
Navy Buildings Department. Exploiting the difficult spinning technique developed by the Louis Poulsen craftsmen, the pendant is an example of Louis Poulsen’s world-famous expertise and creates almost impossible shapes out of a simple sheet of metal.
The range now consists of a painted dark grey and a white, in addition to three metal versions: brass and the new steel and copper. With the characteristic and balanced outline of the design, these pendants form a harmonious, strong and contemporary family.

The beauty of Poul Henningsen’s legacy – a legacy that is integral to the Louis Poulsen story – lies in the continued relevance and adaptability of his designs. In celebration of Henningsen’s ingenious light play, Louis Poulsen release a limited edition of his PH 31⁄2-3 pendant, originally designed in 1926.
For today’s discerning lovers of iconic Danish design, Louis Poulsen is presenting the pendant’s Italian, mouth-blown, single-layered glass in a classic amber hue. The special edition colour accentuates the PH 31⁄2-3’s exceptional warmth and human expression.
“As the glass of each pendant is crafted individually, each lamp varies ever so slightly from the others, resulting in unique pieces that are as much works of art as functional additions to home or work spaces,” says Rasmus Markholt, Idea & Design Director at Louis Poulsen, noting that the pendant’s size makes it ideal for use over a dining table – or, in a more artful arrangement, for hanging multiple pendants together.
