Toldbod in new balanced colour concept
Northern lights - Toldbod 120 Pendant

The Toldbod family idiom is simple, stylish yet always contemporary. Simplicity is one of the keys to Toldbod's unique adaptability to any style and architecture. The Toldbod family comprises outdoor and indoor products.  

This autumn, the Toldbod family will be extended with a brand new colour scheme. Toldbod 120 is a small pendant perfect for repetitive suspension in the home. Light emission is an asset, making the pendant excellent for creating proper task lighting above e.g. a kitchen table. Louis Poulsen includes a 230V 33W energy saving halopin QT G9 light source. This light source supports the kitchen application due to its brilliant colour-rendering properties. The incandescent lamp is being phased out, but the halogen lamp is equally good at rendering the colours of nature rendered perfectly - a key element in being able to see whether the food is fresh.

The colour scheme was chosen to match the aesthetics characterising Louis Poulsen fixtures. They should not merely match current trends, but must also be an elegant presence in any setting that remains new, distinct and yet timeless.

The colour scheme is named northern lights. The colours were found in the Scandinavian landscape. Attempts were made at visualising fields, shores, skies and flora in the beautiful and delicate shades, the strong and effective nuances, in clean and bold colours.

As a design element, the fixtures are adorned with coloured cables in daring contrasts underpinning the colour combinations of nature - thus wafting in a breath of fresh air in interior design.  

Toldbod 120 is in aluminium and available in the colours Misty Blue, inspired by the budding dawn and combined with a mauve cable, Black Berries is black and inspired by the blackberry bush with berries and stalks or leaves, therefore the green cable. Yellow Blossom draws inspiration from the beautiful yellow nuances of the dandelion and the combination with a white cable lends a particular freshness to the fixture. The clouds inspired Cloudy White, which gives a breath of fresh air to any interior design with its turquoise cable. All colours are in high-lustre varnish. We end the Scandinavian colour scheme with a more dramatic fixture, Grey Thunder, mat and rustic, inspired by a rape field during a thunderstorm, with the obvious yellow cable.

The pendants are also available with a white cable if you desire a more discrete solution. The cables in the series are also available as accessories should you opt for a different look at some point.

Toldbod 120 is the perfect example of how small pendants can have a great impact in emphasising focal areas in the room, thus contributing to creating more individuality in the room.
