The Above suspension is designed like a graphic triangle with an arc-shaped opening above the lampshade, revealing the simple cord, creating a downward light and a discrete upward light, resulting in a subdued and pleasant ambience. The beautiful detail of the open top, to which its name refers, conceals the light source to provide the pendant with an ingenious and functional aspect.
The pendant is made of aluminum with a matt painted finish. It is available in four sizes and two colors (black and white), ideal for any type of room.
“I have designed a lamp that embodies my mantra: how simple do you dare to design? I would rather remove than add and I always encourage myself to go as simple as possible, “says Mads Odgård.
Odgård’s approach begins with the function of the design – a drawing of a room, working with simple graphic silhouettes. He manipulates the shape into an aesthetic design. Odgård is a minimalist to the core and creates understandable products, where function is valued to the same degree as form and quality.
“Following Louis Poulsen’s belief that design should shape light, Odgård has taken his knowledge of outdoor lighting and natural ambience inside – and designed a lamp that illuminates a room without dominating. He has considered how the light would interact with and improve its surroundings,” says Idea & Design Director Rasmus Markholt from Louis Poulsen.
