The Yuh Floor Lamp provides direct glare-free downward directed light. A slim opening in the top of the shade provides soft, ambient upward illumination. The shade pivots, rotates, and slides on the vertical stem to optimize light distribution. A mechanical system provides great freedom of movement, so the light can always be set in the ideal position in the workspace, living room etc. Built-in LED technology provides high quality light with stepless dimming down to 15%. Timer function automatically turns off the light after a chosen duration of 4 or 8 hours, or can be set to stay permanently on. Memory function allows light level to be set for each time the fixture is connected to main power. A button at the top of the tube acts as the switch and dimmer.
The Danish-Italian design duo GamFratesi designed Yuh for Louis Poulsen in 2017. Initially launched in black and white, the family was extended with editions featuring brass and marble. One of the essential features of the lamp is to be personal. The light is flexible and taking up little space. It can rotate, rise and lower, illuminating and creating ambience in the desired area. The form of the shade is determined geometrically from the movement that it performs on the stem. A minimalistic appearance created from a circular shape at the bottom to a linear opening at the top of the shade. The name Yuh is the phonetic form of ‘you’, the letters representing the sound made by the voice to say “you”.
