Also known as “PH”, this well known danish architect, Poul Henningsen is the one behind the famous lighting collection which is carrying his name. This renowned designer is said to be the first lighting architect as he decided to devote his life and entire career into proving how important light can play in our well being. His PH artichoke chandelier along with many other of his designs were used in important world class institutions and across Scandinavia.

The Beginning of Poul Henningsen
Because of his earlier past and life experience, mostly having to grow up in a very small Danish town without electricity, his designs reflected his past situation. With the help of his light fixtures, he wanted to recreate the soft gas lighting of his younger days. He created his most iconic PH lamp design with the use of reflective metal bands. He used these metal bands in a concentrated way and layered them to at the same time spread the light and hide the Light bulb.
He carefully analized the shade’s function of a light in order to come up with this design. Poul Henningsen’s goal was to get an even light distribution along with the reduction of glare to create a softer but more diffused lighting. Achieving the victory of the first prize for modern lighting at the International Exposition of Decorative Arts in Paris, his lights were put into production by Louis Poulsen & Co. in Copenhagen. His lights were able to become popular ever since, especially the PH Arctichoke chandelier.
