BIG+Ideas'>BIG Ideas, the technology arm of renowned architecture firm Bjarke Ingles Group (BIG), has partnered with Danish lighting manufacturer Louis Poulsen to create Keglen, a new lighting collection.

Characterised by a distinctive design and the brand's signature lighting quality, the collection features four pendants that each provide their own diffusion of light thanks to a curved glass insert which is built in, and adapted, to each of the different shade styles.

The collection began as the Tirpitz Pendant, an industrial-style pendant designed for the Tirpitz Museum in Blåvand, Denmark by the two brands in 2017.

"It started with a building - as is the case with many of our product designs. We were in the process of designing the Tirpitz Museum and we needed a lamp that could do a range of different things," says Jakob Lange, partner at BIG Ideas.

"We needed a lamp in the cafe and shop areas, but we also needed more general lamps for the museum. This is where we came up with the idea of a cone that was cut at one end and had this industrial, galvanised steel look."

"When you develop a whole family of lamps, they have to have a common thread. We gave the opening the same diameter so that they all appear similar. We also have the characteristic drop of the inside of the shade and then the conical shape itself. The main feature of the lamp is the organic shaped glass that sits perfectly beneath the cone as a small water droplet, shaped by physics and cohesive forces in nature," Lange adds.

The lamps are available in black and white with energy-saving LED lights.
