Rubber Bollard – straight forward lighting with a soft touch
A new approach for urban design, which invites
you to take a break.
Custom-designed for EXPO 2000 - now a Louis
Poulsen standard product
Designed by Peter Bysted, the Rubbie Bollard was created
specially for Expo 2000 in Hanover, Germany, and later released by
Louis Poulsen. Combining the latest technology with an unusual
material, Rubbie was designed to be more than just a lamp - it is a
piece of urban furniture by also serving as a stool.
The Rubbie Bollard is mounted on a base plate with a housing
made from black rubber. This choice of materials is unique, with
intriguing softness and comfort that suggests a new approach for
urban design. And the bollard's height invites you to make at short

Rubbie was produced by design firm and lighting manufacturer
Louis Poulsen, following a long test period to confirm the
durability of the rubber material. When the product was launched,
it was issued with the latest lighting technology.
The Rubbie's light source is a powerful 19W or 18W LED (standard
or dimmable) that distributes a uniform, non glaring, light
distribution that helps create a feeling of safety while
illuminating the surrounding area.
By virtue of the Rubbie's low maintenance, durable construction
and glare-free illumination, it is ideal for plazas, city centers,
parks, walkways and marine environments.
The Rubbie Bollard won the award for Best External Luminaire at
the prestigious Lighting Design Awards that showcases the best of
the lighting industry.
