Collage Pendant by Louis Poulsen5741928679
Collage was designed by Louise Campbell and displayed for the first time at an exhibition at the Copenhagen Furniture Fair in 2004, along with Campbell's 14 other experimental light prototypes presenting new ways of interpreting light. Louise Campbell has always been very preoccupied with daylight in her work with lighting and her aim with Collage Pendant was therefore to imitate daylight. As Campbell expresses it: "The most obvious contrast between daylight and artificial light is that nature only has one light source, and you never look directly into it. Our perception of light is based on countless natural layers which filter and reflect the light". These observations have been integrated into Collage. The three concentric layers within the pendant allows the pattern, light and shadows to more closely replicate the uncontrollable light seen in nature.
The fixture emits diffused light directed primarily downwards. The patterns on the three laser cut 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.
