The Enigma 545 pendant lamp was designed by the Japanese designer Shoichi Uchiyama for the company Louis Poulsen. The Enigma 545 emits a soft, glare-free light of uncompromising quality. The five shades are evenly lit and seem to float in space.
Despite its minimalistic design, the lamp Enigma 545 is characterized by sophisticated lighting technology and pleaseant room lighting. The matte upper surface of Enigma 545 diffuses the light, while the shiny lower surface ensures optimal reflection.
A thin steel cable holds the matt lacquered acrylic shades, that make up the characteristic shape of the lamp. The exceptional surface treatment for the acrylic material was necessary to achieve the desired soft light quality. The lower part of the shade is blank. The light source is placed inside of the cone and is invisible from every angle.
Shoichi Uchiyama was inspired by Japanese lights for the Enigma 545. The pendant lamp also shares the glare-free, pleasant light philosophy with all of the other Louis Poulsen lamps.
The Enigma 545 is the smaller version of the Enigma 825. Originally it was designed for private living areas but it can also be used in professional environments because of its pleasant light distribution.
