The PH 3/2 floor lamp by Louis Poulsen combines a warmly glowing, amber-coloured glass shade with an adjustable leg and base in brushed brass. The construction is based on a reading lamp developed by Poul Henningsen in the 1950s – due to its adjustable arm that could be levered up and down, the lamp got a nickname ”The Water Pump”. The amber-coloured PH 3/2 floor lamp, perfected with Henningsen’s engraved initials beneath the switch, is a special edition for fall 2019 and available for a limited time only.

The PH 3/2 floor lamp from Louis Poulsen features an innovative three-shade system developed by Poul Henningsen in the 1920s. The three mouth-blown glass shades with a sandblasted inner surface form a sculptural lamp that provides a pleasant, glare-free light and brings timeless elegance to any space.

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.
