CharacteristicsDirect downward light creates pleasant atmospheric lighting
Louis Poulsen's LP Capsule is characterized by a high degree of integration between the design elements. The fixture encircles the post for a more coherent solution. Viewed from above, the light consists of two circles – a large round lamp and a smaller round post where the tangents connect the two circles to form a simple geometric harmonious look. The basic idea was to create a cylindrical capsule, with the light source inside a single cylinder, which is in turn inside a larger opal cylinder. This is the source of the direct downward light, but by creating distance between the inner and outer cylinders, the fixture shines surplus light into the gap. Here it is reflected, illuminating the outer cylinder, which glows like a halo around the light source in the middle. This reduces glare and provides a smoother transition to the surrounding environment.
The LP Capsule was designed in collaboration with Carsten Fischer of the architecture firm Henning Larsen. Focused on enhancing the urban environment and people’s experience of it, the modern LED design emits the pleasant atmospheric light characteristic of Louis Poulsen products – and sets new standards for illumination in parks, pathways and squares.
The fixture emits light directed mainly downwards. The fixture has an upward tilt with a compact profile. Variants include 3000K and 4000K options as well as high and low output options.
