References to window blinds, Scandinavian lighting and the rear windows of 1980s ‘muscle’ cars are all apparent in this family of suspension lights designed by Andre Klauser and Ed Carpenter. Seamless pressed aluminium louvres with compound-curved corners are repeated layer upon layer. This creates a multifaceted shade that provides glare-free, directional and ambient light.
It’s both a practical light source and a fascinating and formally enticing object in its own right. The long proportions and scale of Louvre make it ideal for hanging over a dining table. “Our aim was to illuminate the space as well as the light itself. Above that we think Louvre is like a canvas that can change character depending on the colour and finish.” Klauser & Carpenter.
