Product description

Albertslund Mini Post was designed by Jens Møller-Jensen in 1963 for a residential project in Albertslund, Denmark. His father was the architect for the construction project and Jens Møller-Jensen heard through him that they had settled on a particular park post light. When Jens Møller-Jensen heard the price they would have to pay for this post light, he said without hesitation: ‘I can make a better fixture at lower cost!’. Within a week Jens Møller-Jensen had designed a 1:1 mock-up in his workshop which he showed to the parties involved in the residential project. All they needed was a manufacturer, and since Louis Poulsen was a few cents cheaper than its competitors, they received the order. The product design is based on an anti-glare ring, three bolts, a conical reflector and the top shade, which services as the primary reflector. The LED version was launched in 2011, and will have a update in 2019.


The fixture emits symmetrical glare-free light directed downwards. The top shade helps direct the light downwards and prevent light from being emitted upwards. The white painted reflectors result in diffuse and comfortable light distribution. The reflector ring protects against direct glare and does also serves as a heat sink.
