Flindt Garden
Design: Christian Flindt

Following his success with the Flindt Bollard, Christian Flindt created Flindt Garden, a downscaled bollard, which has been perfected for easy on-the-spot installation in both commercial and residential outdoor spaces. The Flindt Garden is a flexible bollard that is scalable in height and available with three different mounting options. Flindt Garden balances simplicity and refinement in a sculptural design that blends beautifully into any garden or outside living space.

The Flindt Garden bollard is the latest addition to the Flindt family, developed by award-winning Danish designer Christian Flindt in collaboration with Louis Poulsen. It is part of Louis Poulsen’s flexible garden collection, which offers instant illumination in outdoor living spaces. The bollard brings life and comfort to outside spaces, without compromising the quality of the light or the design.

Christian Flindt’s design language is very organic, you rarely see angular and sharp lines from him, and it is actually interesting that he has also managed to bring this softness to the light in his fixtures. The soft arc in the slot of the Flindt Bollard creates this feeling, and at the same time gives a diffused distribution of the light. “It just flows out as if it were blocked inside”.

In the daytime, sunlight creates a play of shadow and light in the geometry of the bollard, and at night, when natural light fades, the artificial lighting displays the exact same geometry in a new way. Flindt Garden will bring out accents in the garden, in landscapes, or on roof terraces, allowing you to explore and feel comfortable in outdoor spaces at night.

The idea behind the sculptural design of the Flindt family was born in 2011 when a more refined type of bollard was required to illuminate a park next to an exhibition at the Danish Kunsthal Brænderigården exhibition space, which is known today as Viborg Kunsthal. The fixture was so well-received that Louis Poulsen decided to develop it further. In partnership with Christian Flindt, the bollard was enhanced in terms of materials, light distribution, and efficiency. It was introduced as the “Flindt Bollard” at the Light + Building trade fair in Frankfurt in 2014.

“With Flindt Garden, the Flindt family is a complete family for outdoor areas. The common design language of the different fixtures is the shape that is cut out of a simple form to become a reflector. Depending on how the cut is made, the light is emitted differently. This also reflects the way in which the geometry of the Flindt family works to shape light in various outdoor applications,” says designer Christian Flindt.

With its sculptural cutout and materials selected to complement outdoor environments, the Flindt Garden connects and blends in with its surroundings. The Flindt Garden bollard can be extended with up to six bollards, each placed as far apart as five meters, to truly stand out in repetitive installations. This flexible and minimalist bollard is just as beautifully suited to natural environments as it is to urban gardens.

The Flindt Garden bollard emits a wide, downwardly directed, glare-free light. The light source rests at the top of the fixture, inside the asymmetrical cutout on the side of the bollard, where the gradient serves as a reflector that softens the light and forms an attractive organic shape on the ground below. The Flindt Garden is available in two different heights and with three different mounting options. The bollard is available in a warm corten or aluminum finish.
