artichoke by poul henningsen

PH Artichoke is characterized by its unique and sculptural design, is world-renowned and is considered an international design icon.

ph 2/1(Stammekrone) by poul henningsen
Beautiful and classic lamp designed by Poul Henningsen. The fine lamp is made of high gloss chromed white opal mouth blown glass, which gives a soft light. In addition, the lamp is designed based on the reflective multi-screen system that ensures non-glare lighting.
The screen design is based on a logarithmic spiral, where the light source focal point is located in the center of the coil. The opaque glass of the mouth-blown relay, which is glossy on the outside and sandblasted on the inside, emits a diffuse and soft light. For example, hang the classic lamp above the dining table or in the living room for both comfortable and practical light.
patera by Øivind Slatto
The beautiful lamp is designet by the Danish designer Øivind Slatto. Patera has the shape of a beautiful ball with a structure of small cells that spreads a fantastic light. The Patera pendant is designed carefully so that it captures the light in the most beautiful way. It also means that you can not see the light source from angles above 45 degrees.
In 1931 the 4-screen system was launched as you wanted to make a luminaire that could be mounted high up and thus an alternative to the often used chandeliers. The PH 4 screen lamp was designed to increase the amount of light transmitted horizontally from the lamp, thereby gaining greater lighting on walls and shelves than with the standard 3-screen lamp.
It was taken out of Louis Poulsen’s standard range in the 40’s, but was re-designed in 1979 by the two Danish architects Sophus Frandsen and Ebbe Christensen to the exhibition building Charlottenborg in Copenhagen, only in a larger size: PH 6½ / 6. To solve the endless glare problem, the two architects decided to add a small, inner blue screen to the design.
In addition, they also added a new surface: a matting white lacquered screen for more even and comfortable light – especially for use in museum and exhibition rooms, or just as general lighting in high-ceilinged rooms. In 1984, the smaller version PH 5 / 4½ was produced for Århus Musichouse.
snowball by poul henningsen
The fine Snowball lamp was originally designed by Poul Henningsen in 1958. The Snowball was displayed together with PH 5 at the Kunstindustrimuseet. The extraordinary lamp, however, did not receive much attention on this occasion, and it was therefore only relaunched and manufactured from 1983. The exclusive designer lamp is perfect in the dining room above the table or as a beautiful and nice lighting in an entrance hall or hall. The lamp has a luminaire housing in high gloss chrome plated aluminum, aluminum alloy screen and high gloss chrome-plated cast aluminum frame.
ph5 by poul henningsen
Poul Henningsens (1894-1967) lifelong cooperation with Louis Poulsen began in 1924. Poul Henningsen was one of the first to acknowledge the importance of shaping the light, and in 1958, as a follow-up to his 1926 groundbreaking triangular system, he designed PH 5 the pendant. Based on careful analysis of the light’s reflection quality, PH 5 is characterized by the innovative non-slip form and symmetrical lighting. Poul Henningsen’s pioneering work in lighting theory, in terms of structure, shadow, glare and color reproduction in conjunction with human need for light, is still practiced today in Louis Poulsen.Poul Henningsen (1894-1967). The most significant lighting designer for Louis Poulsen, and his ideas underlie the company’s illumination philosophy. A cultural personality in addition to light spread beyond revue, satire and social criticism. The collaboration with Louis Poulsen continued the rest of PH’s life.
