Bysted was designed by Peter Bysted in 1975 and won second prize in a competition held by Louis Poulsen for outdoor lighting. The idea was to position the shades so as to create an interesting pattern on the ground. The choice of COR-TEN steel as a material was also revolutionary at the time, and still constitutes a major component of the products identity.
Concept: The fixture emits light directed downwards. The shades have a white painted undersurface to achieve optimal light reflection and produce a characteristic symmetric light pattern around the fixture.
