Design: Friis and Moltke

The LIBER L5U wall light is the epitome of a Friis & Moltke designed lamp for Lampas, where a simple piece of rolled steel plate in a 1970s style has now become a timeless design icon in lighting.
The light hits the spot with every single design choice to such an extent that it far surpasses its simple design and becomes an experience of light, form, material and history in one.

LIBER L5U hangs on house walls and by front doors all over the world. Many Danes will remember seeing the lamp in a street, at school or in holiday home. The light is equally suitable for small or large rooms, either in black, bold colours or in the pure galvanised version.

The solid choice of materials and robust steel screen emphasize the lamp´s simplicity. The LIBER L5U is a wall light that stands the test of time, not only in terms of durability, but also when it comes to style.

Wall light by Friis & Moltke Design

The LIBER L5U consists of a light source encased in a steel semi-circle. The light provides glare-free illumination in both an upward and downward direction when mounted on a wall.

The wall light can be mounted either directly on the wall or with a back plate, also in steel. The back plate is powder coated in white as standard.

The screen is made of 2 mm steel and can be supplied with a pure hot-dip galvanised surface or powder coated in any RAL colour.

The light is also available in an indoor version, the LIBER L5.

Robust exterior light with LED

The LIBER L5U was designed as wall lighting for a furniture exhibition at the Bella Centre in Amager in 1973. It joined Friis & Moltke Design’s long line of lights in rolled steel plate.

When this light was being developed at Lampas, every detail, no matter how small, was examined. Every single component of the LIBER L5U has been carefully designed. For example, designers even discussed whether to use the same colour as the inside or outside for the edge (in the end, the outside won). The distance between the screws was adjusted to the size of a standard brick.
