The PH Artichoke, originally designed for Langelinie Pavilionen in Copenhagen, was designed to be as impressive as a classic chandelier, with its sculptural properties, while providing beautiful glare-free light. Today, you’ll find it in many different places.
A design that transcends time and place, that’s what makes it an icon.
When Henningsen designed the iconic PH Artichoke for the Langelinie Pavillonen restaurant in Copenhagen in 1958, he opted for solid copper leaves with a rose finish on the leaves' interiors. This combination lent an exceptional warmth to the lamp's organic form and beautifully reflected the light from its hidden source. The PH Artichoke creates soft, glare-free illumination, with its complex design and structure ensuring that the light breaks and filters evenly into the room.
