Louis Poulsen, Danish Design Lighting
PH Artichoke Blanche Louis Poulsen – Poul Henningsen, 1958

Almost 50 years ago, the designer Poul Henningsen designed the PH Artichoke or "Pine Cone" suspension lamp - now considered a masterpiece of world design.Β 

Its central structure is made up of 12 metal arches, to which Poul Henningsen has attached 72 petals divided into 12 circles. Each circle is offset from the previous one, so that the petals are positioned alternately: in this way, the suspension can be viewed from all angles without ever seeing the dazzling light source.Β

The sculptural PH Artichoke was designed for the Langelinie Pavillonen restaurant in Copenhagen, where it still hangs today. Its petals conceal the light source, giving it a powerful yet gentle glare-free effect.Β 

Its unique organic shape and its ability to add elegance and atmosphere to a wide range of spaces quickly drew attention to it. Over the years, Louis Poulsen has offered a number of different finishes, each giving it a new expression.Β

A true icon never ceases to reinvent itself, and Poul Henningsen's PH Artichoke is no exception. The 60th anniversary of the lamp was celebrated by Louis Poulsen with a numbered brushed brass edition, now included in the catalogue as an unnumbered classic.Β

Poul Henningsen

Poul Henningsen

Born in Copenhagen, Poul Henningsen's mother was the famous Danish actress Agnes Henningsen. He never qualified as an architect, but studied at the Technical School in Frederiksberg (Denmark) from 1911 to 1914, and then at the Technical College in Copenhagen (1914-1917).

He started out practising traditional functionalist architecture, but over the years his professional interests evolved to focus mainly on lighting, which is what he is most famous for. He also branched out into writing, becoming a journalist and author. For a brief period at the start of the Second World War, he was chief architect of Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen. But like many other creative people, he was forced to flee Denmark during the German occupation, and soon became a vital part of the Danish colony of artists living in Sweden.

His long collaboration with Louis Poulsen began in 1925 and lasted until his death. To this day, Louis Poulsen still benefits from his genius. Poul Henningsen was also the first editor-in-chief of the business magazine "NYT". Louis Poulsen's CEO at the time, Sophus Kaastrup-Olsen, offered PH the magazine because he had been sacked from the Danish newspaper he was working for (his views were too radical).

Poul Henningsen's pioneering work on the relationship between light structures, shadows, glare and colour reproduction, compared with man's need for light, remains the foundation of the lighting theories still practised by Louis Poulsen.
