Louis Poulsen GRAND
The successful partnership between Danish designer Christian Flindt and Louis Poulsen forges ahead with the ambitious LP GRAND system for large rooms.
Asked for big – and got it. Christian Flindt's illuminated round fixture has a diameter of up to 1.5 metres and bears the prestigious name, LP GRAND. The fixture can be surface mounted on the ceiling or suspended by wires, and has a simple silhouette with soft harmonic lines.
With LP GRAND, Christian Flindt has succeeded in developing an extremely versatile fixture series, with countless combination options. It offers architects, engineers, light designers and installers a light toolbox that can provide general lighting using a single fixture series – while also adding character through a creative approach to the project.
The round ceiling fixtures have the advantage that they can be arranged in any conceivable pattern without disrupting the ceiling surface. They can be placed in rows, formations or patterns, in various sizes and at various heights, only limited by your creativity. LP GRAND can thus be used to provide light that fulfils functional requirements while also creating a unique atmosphere.
The fixture is ideal for hotels, restaurants, schools and offices – locations that require comfortable and energy efficient lighting while also calling for an appealing design. LP GRAND works well in rooms with high or low ceilings, and the fixture family encourages the creation of innovative and inspiring lighting environments.
The LP GRAND fixture emits 90% of its light downwards through an opal acrylic shade. The result is a glare-free, tranquil and uniform lighting surface. The uplight is reflected off a double-curved reflector, and the fixture glows from the reflected light between the shades. The area around the fixture is thereby illuminated, creating a decorative effect that also smooths out the luminance. This gives the ceiling a more peaceful intimacy with the room, which is then presented at its best and experienced as harmoniously illuminated.
LP GRAND will have its world premiere at the world's largest lighting exhibition, light+building in Frankfurt, from 13-18 March 2016, and will be ready for delivery in early June.
LP GRAND is an ambitious new initiative, launched as one of the first fixtures following Polaris' acquisition of Louis Poulsen in 2014. The fixture family aims to ensure that Louis Poulsen continues to be the first choice for lighting projects where comfort, atmosphere and design are the key factors.
LP GRAND is available in three colours – black, white and champagne. The fixtures are fitted with high-efficiency LED light sources and available in diameters of 580, 880 and 1480 mm, with lumen packages exceeding 20,000 lumens. The energy-efficient LED light sources ensure that the installation will last for many years, making both the budget and the project optimally future proof.
