Why you'll love this stem light

The PH 2/1 stem light was designed by Poul Henningsen in 1925 for Danish lighting brand Louis Poulsen and originally featured in an exhibition in Paris. Henningsen and Louis Poulson struck a partnership that would last until 1967 and produced a range of 18 lights that were available in several different options - giving the end-user complete control over their lighting situation.

By using a design based on the logarithmic spiral, Poul achieved even distribution of light over the entire curve of the shade for the PH 2/1. This even light distribution, together with the diffuse reflection through the glass, made it possible to control glare and shadow. Each shade reduces the amount of light equally, due to their distance from the light source. The PH 2/1 Pendant consists of an approximately 20 cm top shade, but uses lower shades from the 1/1 model.

The fixture is based on the principle of a reflective three-shade system, which directs the majority of the light downwards. The shades are made of hand-blown opal three-layer glass, which is glossy on top and sandblasted matte on the underside, giving a soft and uniform light distribution.
