In the 1950s, Louis Poulsen introduced a new reading lamp by Poul Henningsen, the celebrated pioneer of Danish design. Becauseof its adjustable arm that can be levered up and down, the lamp was immediately dubbed ‘The Water Pump’. In honour of Poul Henningsen’s legacy, the PH 3/2 Amber Coloured Glass Floor Lamp is Louis Poulsen’s PH Limited Edition 2019.
Henningsen’s initials are beautifully engraved beneath the switch.
Poul Henningsen's pioneering work concerning the relations between light structures, shadows, glare, and color reproduction—compared to man’s need for light remains the fondation of the lighting theories still practiced by Louis Poulsen.
