Louis Poulsen’s PH 3/2 Academy is a large pendant light consisting of three white opal glass shades and a chromed brass frame. With its generous diameter of 68 cm, PH 3/2 Academy is designed especially for spacious living rooms and halls. Launched in 2000, PH 3/2 Academy is a member of the PH lamp family based on a three-shade system developed in the 1920s by Poul Henningsen. The three-layered glass shade fills the room with glare-free light that is both soft and bright at the same time. This classic yet striking pendant lamp is made of hand-blown white opal glass shades, which have been sandblasted on the undersides to create unique illumination for various different spaces.

Poul Henningsen

Poul Henningsen (1894-1967) was a famous Danish designer who studied at the Technical School at Frederiksberg, Denmark, from 1911 to 1914, and then at the Technical College in Copenhagen from 1914 to 1917. He started practicing traditional functionalistic architecture, but over the years his professional interests changed to focus mainly on lighting which is what he became famous for.

He also expanded his field of occupation into areas of writing, becoming a journalist and an author. His lifelong collaboration with Louis Poulsen Lighting began in 1925 and lasted until his death. To this day, Louis Poulsen Lighting still benefits from his genius. Poul Henningsen was also the first editor of the company magazine “NYT”. Poul Henningsen’s pioneering work concerning the relations between light structures, shadows, glare, and color reproduction – compared to man’s need for light remains the fondation of the lighting theories still practiced by Louis Poulsen Lighting.
