Magnificently considered, this iteration of the 3/2 Table Lamp features a brass top plate, followed by a pair of opal glass lower plates, with the resulting piece being one which exhibits a real sense of refined style.
The nature of the lamp’s tiered structure allows for a carefully structured downward hue to be emitted, while the instantly recognisable Poulsen silhouette means that it will elevate any space whether illuminated or not.
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.
