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

PH 2/1 pendant is a member of the of the PH 3-shade family principles, which were developed in the winter of 1925-26 for a large exhibition hall in Copenhagen, Denmark called "Forum".

The combination of diffused reflection and a logarithmic shade curve gave PH the opportunity to control a fixture's glare and shading, as each shade would evenly decrease the amount of light emitted according to their distance from the bulb.

The PH fixtures were designed as a rational lighting system where the size of the shade, its material, and its surfaces could be combined mutually according to the nature of the assignment.

The PH3-shade system started out as a pendant solution but very quickly it also developed into other kinds of fixtures and chandeliers.

Poul Henningson's 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's pioneering work concerning the relations between light structures, shadows, glare, and color reproduction-compared to man's need for light remains the foundation of the lighting theories still practiced by Louis Poulsen Lighting.

PH 2/1 pendant provides soft illumination. It is based on the principle of a reflecting multi-shade system, producing glare free illumination. The fixture is offered with white, handblown opal glass shades and a choice of black metalized, brass metalized or chrome plated spun aluminum. The canopy is white and includes a 12' foot black cord.

Poul Henningsen

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.
