The Collage Pendant by Louis Poulsen

I pretty much grew up in a restaurant and spent far too many years waiting tables and bartending but I must say that when the Louis Poulsen "Lighting in Restaurants" catalog arrived, I was in awe. There were several remarkably good looking dining spots but I fell head over heels in love with the Collage Pendant by Louis Campbell. Designed to specifically emit a constantly changing reveal, it comes in five colors and I think it looks absolutely beautiful! Photography by Clearlight.

Seen in discontinued color "Spring Green" in Copenhagen's Geranium. So gorgeous, and the chef's aren't bad either. The seasonal Danish fare served up by chef Rasmus Kofoed and chef Soren Ledet is supposedly just as stunning as its interiors.

Located in Kongens Have, Copenhagen's most beautiful park, it is housed in an old garden pavilion which inspired Rasmus and Soren's design aesthetic. The green of the lighting draws the gardens indoors. Campbell designed the Collage Pendant with the inspiration of a sun ray through tree foliage.

Also in Copenhagen, the Formel B uses the Collage Pendant in their main dining room. The glossy pendant shades offset the bare walls and marble finishes. French fare is their specialty and the glass box belonging to sommelier Martin Bek ties the two levels of the restaurant together. Photo by Anders Sune Berg.
