Story behind the product
Bysted won 2nd prize in the Louis Poulsen competition for outdoor lighting in 1975. This product was mainly chosen for its robust design, which makes it highly vandal proof. The design expression is symmetrical and low-key and fits into a wide variety of architectural environments. Once it has patinated it fits perfectly into nature.
