PH-lamp variants

Louis Poulsen is adding six new variants to the glass lamp family - with high luster chrome plated or black metalized frames.

Six new

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

The mouth-blown white opal glass shades soften the lamp's overall look. Glossy on top and sandblasted matt underneath, they provide illumination that is soothing, uniform and glare-free, key attributes of PH’s classic three-shade system. Meanwhile, the black metallised version of the frames has a more industrial look, which is eye-catching yet understated.

Design to Shape Light

Poul Henningsen's three-shade system is designed to shape light more than any other. This system 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 practicing 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 be still 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 measuring about 20 cm in diameter but uses lower shades from the 1/1 model – to give the lamp a dynamic appearance.
