Poul Henningsen PH 3-2 Desk Lamp

The PH 3/2 Desk Lamp is a beautiful piece of design with well thought out form and functionality. The lamp emits soft gradually diffused light which is in keeping with Poul Henningsen’s design ethos. He prevents glare by making the light source completely invisible. He distributes the light through several shades arranged in a logarithmic spiral, with the light source at the core. The great architectural versatility of the PH 3/2 Desk Lamp makes the piece an artistic accessory for any contemporary interior.

ItaliaDesigns produces the appealing design using hand-blown opal glass lampshades and a carbon steel stand. The lamp is available in a natural-chromed, dark-chromed or special edition gold finish.

About the Designer

Poul Henningsen

Poul Henningsen

Designer, author, architect and critic, Poul Henningsen was born into an intellectual and upper class family in Denmark, 1894. Famed for his innovative lighting design, Henningsen was also one of the leading cultural figures in Denmark between both World Wars.
Inspired by nature and form, Henningsen’s design style was both unique and provocative. He didn’t believe in the mundane and obvious, once stating, ”All political art is bad – all good art is political.”
Celebrated worldwide, Poul Henningsen’s work remains within several notable 20th-century design collections, including that of the Metropolitan Museum in New York City. Henningsen was also given the prestigious honour of designing a piece for Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen.
