Utilising the multi-shade, glare-free system Henningsen was so famous for, the PH 2/1 makes the perfect desk lamp. It’s elegant, sophisticated and able to produce warm, evenly spread light wherever it’s placed.
Suitable for home or contract use, the light is available in black, chrome or a stunning brass finish. Part of the Louis Poulsen PH 2/1 family.
Poul Henningsen is an integral figure in lighting design and architecture, whose revolutionary views on the utilisation of light in the home led to a number of ground-breaking designs.
Collaborating with Louis Poulsen in 1924/25, Henningsen produced the first version of the seminal PH multi-shade lamp, a classic piece of modern lighting design, featuring separate elements which are shaped and assembled in such a way that the bulb is covered and light is directed downward, creating a soft, diffused effect.
Henningsen was aware of the importance of light in urban life, but sought a way to subdue the harshness of electric light while harnessing its mood-altering properties, believing that the aesthetic of an interior is highly dependent on how light is used.
