" is an art to make light both economical and glare free." -Poul Henningsen

PH 3.5-2.5 was designed in 1928 and is one of many advanced projects undertaken by Poul Henningsen in the development of his world-famous three-shade system. Poul Henningsen devoted most of his life to taming electric light. He based his three-shade design on a logarithmic spiral to make optimum use of the light source. He was constantly doing calculations and tests. The form of the shades was determined by the way they were required to shape and reflect the light, and the lamp was designed to be glare-free.

The fixture is designed based on the principle of a reflective three-shade system, which directs the majority of the light downwards. The shades are made of handblown opal three-layer glass, which is glossy on top and sandblasted matte on the underside, giving a soft and diffuse light distribution.

With the PH 3.5-2.5 table lamp is a great fit for your office desk, living room, dining room, bedroom or any other room. You can be sure the models from this range will provide good, attractive lighting - and help create a decorative and inspiring interior.

Poul Henningsen

Poul Henningsen (1894-1967) was born in Copenhagen to the famous Danish actress Agnes Henningsen. He never graduated as an architect, but started practicing traditional functionalistic architecture. This led him to focus on what he would become the most well-known for, lighting; although he also had a significant literary career. At the beginning of WWII, he was forced to flee Denmark during the German occupation but soon became a vital part of the Danish colony of artists living in Sweden.

A beautiful and useful table lamp
Casey, more than a month ago.
A great deal of thought and care went into the design of this lamp, whose purpose is to give light with no glare. The design of the shade components is stunning, and the lamp achieves its objectives while being beautiful. The base is substantial with nice weighting. An amazing achievement in lighting design.
