" 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 practiced traditional functionalistic architecture. This led him to focus on what he would become most well-known for; lighting. During the German occupation he became part of a Danish colony of artists living in Sweden.
Honoring Danish design tradition, Louis Poulsen designs are based on the principle that form follows function. Passionate craft-ship, quality materials and innovative designs are instrumental in producing this iconic lighting.
