The warmth of coloured glass
When Poul Henningsen designed the PH 3/2 Table Lamp in 1927, he was only two years into what would go on to be a lifelong collaboration with Louis Poulsen. To honour Henningsen's legacy and the impact that it has had upon Louis Poulsen, a Limited Edition PH 3/2 Table Lamp has been released. The lamp has exquisite Italian mouth-blown, amber-coloured glass shades and a brushed brass frame. It is available only until 31st December 2018.
The varying colourations in coloured glass have won people over for decades with their warmth and individuality, highlighting the beauty of hand craftsmanship. The inviting colour scheme that the lamp evokes is perfect for both modern and traditional interiors. Light is comforting and warm - reminiscent of candlelight.
Bringing warm, metallic tones into contemporary interiors
"The amber-coloured glass accentuates the shade's organic form. And because the glass of each lamp is crafted individually, each one varies ever so slightly from the others," says Rasmus Markholt, Product & Design Director at Louis Poulsen. "This makes every limited-edition PH 3/2 Table Lamp unique - it is as much a work of art, as it is a source of light."
The frame is made of solid, brushed brass, left untreated to allow for a beautiful patina over time. The light switch is integrated into the stem of the light. Henningsen's initials are engraved beneath the switch, adding an elegant finishing touch.
Signature Poul Henningsen elements, combined
Henningsen’s pioneering work with the relationship between light structures, shadows, glare, and colour reproduction, and his fascination with the human need for both darkness and light, remain the foundation of Louis Poulsen’s lighting philosophy. Seeking to reduce glare and enhance illumination, he developed his revolutionary three-shade system in 1926, achieving softly diffused lighting that was pleasing to the eye and created more comfortable and inviting spaces for work and life.
