Louis Poulsen’s PH 2/2 The Question Mark is a unique table lamp designed by Poul Henningsen already in 1931. The name of the charismatic table lamp comes from its playful curved shape reminiscent of a question mark. Re-released in 2021, the exclusive version is adorned with shiny brass and elegant opal glass and is finished with engraved initials by the designer. The luminaire is only available as a limited edition.

The PH 2/2 The Question Mark table lamp features a recognizable and innovative three-shade system. The three mouth-blown opal 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. The light can be easily focused by turning the brass handle. The sophisticated table lamp gains more authenticity over time as the natural patina softens the shiny brass.

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.
