Why you'll love this Table Lamp

The PH 2/1 table light is a beautifully crafted light that was originally designed by Poul Henningsen in 1925 for Danish lighting brand Louis Poulsen. Its fixture is based on the principle of a reflective three-shade system, which directs the majority of the light downwards. By using a design based on the logarithmic spiral, Poul achieved even distribution of light over the entire curve of the shade. 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 table light has a white opal glass finish and a high lustre chrome plated base. It has a glossy finish on top and is sandblasted matte on the underside. The result is a beautifully simple lamp that emits harmonious and glare-free light.
