Louis Poulsen Aeros Pendant by Ross Lovegrove

August 26th, 2011 by retail design blog

Aeros immediately draws the attention of the eye. An ethereal, floating object with an exquisitely perforated surface at once luminous and shielded. Aeros exudes an elegant mystique reminiscent of Byzantine decoration. Aeros is equally ultramodern, and its advanced design made technical production a major challenge. With its sculptural beauty, its shielded light source and comfortable light distribution, Aeros fulfills all requirements of the Louis Poulsen lighting philosophy.

Aeros is mainly designed to be suspended relatively low above tables, but may with the same optimum result be mounted higher up. The fixture is ideal for private interiors and professional settings, such as conference rooms, restaurants, bars and receptions.
