Focus on: Cirque – vibrant design & exuberant colours
Introducing Cirque; the beautiful pendant light collection from Louis Poulsen with a colourful difference.
The brief ‘create a lamp inspired by Copenhagen’s legendary amusement park, Tivoli.’ And the outcome is beautiful.
“I don’t mind at all if – sitting in their kitchens – people look up and start thinking hot-air balloons and carousels,” says Clara von Zweigbergk and you most certainly do.
Inspired by a trip to Tivoli in Copenhagen, which is full of whirls and twirls – carousels, candy floss makers, wheels of fortune and many smiles.
You can see exactly how Clara was influenced by the spinning rides, especially as the faster they spin the more the colours merge and turn into horizontal bands.
All these impressions have resulted in a vibrant design, which unites unconventional colours and forms in a series of truly innovative pendants.
The new lighting collection is equally suited for restaurants and bars, kitchens and dining rooms.
Three is certainly not a crowd when we’re talking about the Cirque – available in three unconventional colour combinations – one bright and colourful and the other two more subdued and in three sizes.
When hung individually, they will add a dash of colour to any room, while the ultimate decorative effect is achieved by suspending clusters of three together to create a stunning focal point.
The pendents can be used with the whole range of LED light sources, allowing you the complete freedom to choose the perfect light source for you, to guarantee the best colour output and light temperature in your room.
