Poul Henningsen for Louis Poulsen

[ translate ]

POUL HENNINGSEN (Denmark, 1884-1967) for Louis Poulsen.
PH 3/2 table lamp, Limited Edition.
Blown white opaline glass lampshades.
Brushed brass structure.
Brand new.
Delivered disassembled in its original box.
Measurements: 47.2 x 29 x 29 cm.
The PH 3/2 table lamp was designed by Poul Henningsen for Louis Poulsen. It is a variant created from his PH Artichoke of 1958 and, like that, it is characterized above all by the quality of a design that visibly contributes to beautifying the architectural space in which it is located. The superimposed sheets of blown glass that make up its screen use light contrasts to avoid glare and create an aesthetic effect of great beauty; They redirect and reflect light, resulting in unique and distinctive lighting.
Danish designer, architect and critic, Poul Henningsen was one of the key figures in the cultural life of Denmark in the interwar period. He studied architecture between 1911 and 1917, but never graduated, as he decided to become an inventor and painter. However, he will work as an architect and become one of the most prominent defenders of functionalism. In his career as a designer, his most famous creation was the “PH Artichoke” lamp, a simple lamp that used light contrasts to avoid glare and create an aesthetic effect of great beauty. His success allowed Henningsen to finance his later work. He is currently representing the Danish Museum of Art and Design, the MoMA in New York and the Victoria & Albert in London, among many others.
