The PH 3½ 2½ Floor Light is a wonderful example of Henningsen’s iconic work; elegant, refined and meticulously designed for perfect functionality.
Available with a chrome, black or brass base, the PH 3½ 2½ Floor Light embodies a sophisticated, slender design, creating a soft, diffused light that is perfect in a bedroom or living space.
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.
