The fixture emits diffuse light directed primarily downwards.
The patterns on the three lasercut acrylic shades have been carefully staggered with the aim of eliminating unpleasant glare from the light source. The patterns differ between the shades, resulting in different perceptions of light and shadow depending on the viewing angle. A soft and comfortable light will be obtained by mounting the lower antiglare shade.
Class: Ingress protection IP20. Electric shock protection I w. ground. Energy Class A+ - E.
Info notes: Top- and bottom antiglare shades are available as accessories.

Louise Campbell's Collage in peaceful new colours
The well known Collage light fixture is being released in a new version to celebrate 10 years since its launch.
The fixture began attracting attention back in 2005 as soon as Louis Poulsen introduced it onto the world market in cooperation with the designer, Louise Campbell.
Ten years on, the Collage light fixture now hangs in homes, institutions, universities, hospitals and numerous restaurants around the world.
Collage is being released in a new series of douche colours, and a new matt velour-like finish. These give Collage a completely new identity, and the fascinating shadow patterns formed by the three-layer shade set have an exclusive new and different look.
The Collage pendant is available in two sizes: Ø600 mm and Ø450 mm. The pendant's simple expression makes it very versatile above dining tables and meeting tables, or as high general lighting. Collage is available in a flexible version with an E27 fitting, which fits the new LED bulbs. To further optimise lighting comfort, an anti-glare set can be purchased for the top and bottom as an optional extra. This diffuses the light directed upwards and downwards, and also inhibits direct views of the light source from all directions.
The new colours and surfaces will give any indoor environment a new identity and atmospheric lighting. Whether on or off, the new Collage light fixtures create beautiful focal points for gatherings of any size.
Louise Campbell's inspiration from nature, translated into room lighting, has proven to be an enduring and valued design idea, which has made her name and the Collage light fixture known around the world. She has thereby proven herself to be among the key Danish designers, carrying on proud Danish design traditions in cooperation with Danish companies.
Louise Campbell was born in Copenhagen in 1970. Being the daughter of a Danish father and an English mother, she grew up and was educated in both countries. After graduating from the London College of Furniture in 1992, she returned to Denmark and continued her studies in Industrial Design at Denmark's Design School, graduating from here in 1995. She set up her own studio in 1996, from where she has worked independently since. Her main focus is on furniture and lighting design, but the studio is increasingly involved in product and interior design projects as well.
Louise Campbell’s work is playful and experimental, and is increasingly gaining a reputation for gently twisting not only every day objects and situations, but also materials and manufacturing processes in new directions. The combination of Scandinavian rationalism and femininity, and perhaps her dual nationality, give the works of Louise Campbell an unusual edge. Illustrating contrasts seem to be an issue that keeps returning in her work.
The studio is also known for its interest in less commercial activities. Apart from being the curator and designer of exhibitions, Louise Campbell has taken part in numerous activities aiming at improving the design environment in Denmark. Among these initiatives is ‘Walk the Plank’, a collaboration lasting seven years between 30 furniture designers and 60 cabinet makers, all of whom donated their time and original design for a truly fine cause.
There are a few ground rules the studio aims to abide by: Always start from scratch. Everything is possible until the opposite has been proven. There must be a good reason for every single decision made.
Among different awards achieved by Louise Campbell, she won the IF Product Design Award in gold for “Campbell Pendant” in 2005, which she designed specifically for Louis Poulsen.
