Stylish and simple, with a history thrown in, the Louis Poulsen Discus 350 ceiling light by Arne Jacobsen could be a timeless addition to your home.
It was designed back in 1963, specifically for illuminating indoor staircases and exterior walls for a city hall in Denmark, the shade being perfect for diffusing 'soft' light over a large area, while the glass diffuser means an even distribution of light.
Those utilitarian looks haven't aged and are unlikely to anytime soon. So the £295 price might be a worthy investment. Check out a wall light variation over the page too, retailing for the same price.
