Cirque by Louis Poulsen

Cirque – new colours – Designed by Clara von Zweigbergk

“You can gaze up into the lamp and imagine that you are beneath a hot-air balloon,” says Cirque’s Swedish designer, Clara von Zweigbergk.

Inspired by a visit to Copenhagen’s Tivoli gardens and amusement park – where carousels, spaceships, and other spinning objects fill the air – the colourful Cirque pendant has been an adventurous design since its 2016 launch. Now, von Zweigbergk’s dynamic form is exploring new territory in a quintessentially Scandinavian palette of soft grey tones.

Compared to the original, colourful versions, the new, grey Cirque further accentuates the contours of von Zweigbergk’s distinctive shape. Perfectly applied bands of gradient greys give the impression that the pendant is spinning in mid-air, just as von Zweigbergk hoped.
