Louis Weisdorf

Louis Weisdorf blog postsLouis Weisdorf (born 1932) graduated as an architect at the age of 22, having embarked upon the five-year course at Copenhagen's Kunstakademiet when he was just 17 years old. Weisdorf is best known today for his lighting designs, but this is only one of several areas of architecture and design to which he has applied his particular talent for technical design in a long and varied career encompassing a diverse portfolio of specialisms including industrial design, urban landscape planning and computer programs. Weisdorf has worked closely with other illustrious designers including Verner Panton, Poul Henningsen, PH's son Simon P Henningsen and Acton Bjørn, and his work continues as, now in his 80s, he provides architecture and design services to clients in Denmark and around the world from his Frederiksberg office.
