PH-lamp variants

Louis Poulsen is adding seven new lamps with high lustre chrome plated and black metallised frames to the PH glass family.

Seven new

The new members of the PH glass family include new PH glass lamps with white opal glass and a high lustre chrome or black metallised frame.

The black metallised industrial look results in an eye-catching, understated look. The mouth-blown white opal glass shades soften the lamp's overall look and produce perfect, harmonious and glare-free lighting, as only the classic three-shade system can do.

Design to Shape Light

Poul Henningsen's three-shade system is designed to shape light more than any other. This was at the very core when Poul Henningsen designed the three-shade system in 1925, such that the shade angles conceal the light source from view.

Poul Henningsen

Poul Henningsen was born in Copenhagen in 1894. He began studying architecture but did not complete this. He next studied at Copenhagen Technical College from 1911-1914, and then for three years at the Technical University in Copenhagen.

Poul Henningsen started out practising traditional functionalist architecture, but over time began to focus primarily on lighting – the field which ultimately made him world-famous. Louis Poulsen is proud to still be carrying on Poul Henningsen's lighting philosophy.

One three-shade system – endless possibilities

Lamps using Poul Henningsen's three-shade system are named according to the shade size. Each top shade has a corresponding set of middle and lower shades. On the original models such as the 2/2, the top shade had a width of approximately 20 cm, with corresponding lower shades. PH 2/1 has a top shade approximately 20 cm in diameter, but uses lower shades from the 1/1 model – to give the lamp a dynamic appearance.
