PH LOUVRE
design Poul Henningsen, 1957

PH Louvre was designed for the Adventist Church in Skodsborg, Denmark in 1957. The globe-shaped fixture is made up of 13 shades mounted on four supports. It is a simplification of an earlier light Poul Henningsen designed in 1942, called the Spiral.

 PH Louvre provides 100% glare-free light. The geometrical, spherical design is based on the principle of illuminating all surfaces at the same angle. This ensures uniform light around the fixture, illuminating both walls and ceiling. Matt painted undersurfaces and glossy top surfaces result in an attractive reflection of the diffused light, creating uniform light distribution around the fixture. 

Light source LED 2741 lumen, 2700K 96W – Dimmable with DALI or with Bluetooth via a tablet or a smartphone
Dimensions Ø60 x H65 cm – Cord 4 m white textile 

Weight 10,3 kg

Poul Henningsen

Poul Henningsen (1894-1967) was a famous Danish designer who studied at the Technical School at Frederiksberg, Denmark, from 1911 to 1914, and then at the Technical College in Copenhagen from 1914 to 1917. He started practicing traditional functionalistic architecture, but over the years his professional interests changed to focus mainly on lighting which is what he became famous for.

He also expanded his field of occupation into areas of writing, becoming a journalist and an author. His 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 was also the first editor of the company magazine “NYT”. 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 fondation of the lighting theories still practiced by Louis Poulsen Lighting.
