By Louis Poulsen


  • Description

    As a guideline for interior lighting it was determined to concentrate on the using of soft light through indirect lighting rather than direct illumination. Through adjusting the light levels for indirect lighting on walls and ceilings you will optain a variety of degrees of brightness and as result enhance the three-dimensional effect of space and objects. Enigma found its inspiration in Japanese lighting culture and shares the lighting philosophy of glare-free, comfortable light with all other fixtures from Louis Poulsen. Enigma 425 is in fact a down scaled version of the Enigma 825. Launchen mainly to the residential market but found useable in a lot of professional settings due to its comfortable light distribution.

    Shoichi Uchiyama

    Shoichi Uchiyama was born and bred in Tokyo. Since the foundation of Shoichi Uchiyama Design Office in 1977, he has been committed to creation of lighting fixtures with glare-free indirect light that make objects beautiful, and allow people to feel the texture and depth of objects. He seeks quality lighting through the design of lighting fixtures , and devotes himself to realize the beautiful effect of indirect light in space. As a basic concept, Uchiyama tries to create the ideal light distribution and the elimination of uncomfortable glare by controlling of light, through thorough understanding of light source characteristics. He believes that the verification process for lighting effect in particular is essential to pursue high-quality lighting. By preparing for the fixture's full scale mock-ups with actual light source, he examines the intensity and color of light, the shadows casting on the objects, as well as the fixture's aesthetic appearance. Such strict design process leads to the creation of simple and functional form, and it finally gives his products a minimalistic beauty of Japanese tradition. Uchiyama's lighting fixtures, which are created through an accurate calculation of light, are the proof of his design philosophy. He has won the iF Award in Germany and the Good Design Award in Japan for designs created by his unique talent.
