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

The PH 3.5-2.5 table is a rustic lamp with an extremely high level of detail. In particular, the shade holder is an extraordinary detail that testifies to the precision applied to each and every lamp. PH discovered that the combination of a metal top shade and a lower shade in opalescent white glass was one of the most effective and decorative ways to make use of the light source. The light was directed precisely where it was most needed. It is tempting to refer to the illumination as 'decorative', and it cannot be denied that the table lamp is decorative, irrespective of whether it is switched on or off.

The table lamp is fitted with a metal top shade, whose white lower surface reflects the light gently downwards. In addition to ensuring improved utilization of the effect of the light source, the two mouth-blown lower shades provide pleasant, glare-free lighting in the room as a whole. The frame is painted silk matte brown, giving the lamp the same appearance as the burnished brass lamps typical of the period. For environmental reasons, this burnishing process is no longer used today, but the new solution is almost identical and not as vulnerable to external influences as the original burnishing was.

The top shade is available in yellow, red, green and white - the same colors PH used in his original lamp ranges. In addition, the top shade is fitted with a white-painted, rolled edge that makes the shade appear more voluminous, thus helping underpin the iconic profile of the three-shade lamp.

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.
Danish lighting manufacturer Louis Poulsen was founded in 1874. Some of the company's best designers were Arne Jacobsen and Poul Henningsen. Henningsen created the well known PH-Lamps line and the iconic "Artichoke" Lamps. For over 70 years Louis Poulsen has been working with visionary designers, thus the Danish company has become one of the worlds most innovative manufacturers of lighting solutions. The revolutionary ideas of designers and and architects such as Verner Panton and Arne Jacobsen could become reality only by profound production know how.
