Divan 2 Lamp
Simon P. Henningsen, 1962

Simon is the son of Poul Henningsen, author of numerous icons published by Louis Poulsen. He created the Divan 2 lamp in 1962 for the eponymous restaurant located in Copenhagen's famous amusement park, Tivoli. The dining room offered a spectacular view of the garden lake, and at night the shimmering surfaces of the suspension caught the light of the lake. At the time of the fireworks, the restaurant's suspension lights were turned off and the lamps were raised to the ceiling to give guests a great view of the show.

The success of the Divan 2 lamp went far beyond the Copenhagen amusement park and the lamp received several Danish and international design awards. In 1963, it was even exhibited in the Louvre in Paris.

Simon P. Hennigsen

Son of the legendary Danish architect and lighting designer Poul Henningsen, Simon P. Henningsen learned about lighting at an early age. Not only about the different types of light, but also about how each one brings distinct qualities. The two men worked together on various design tasks for Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen, and in 1948 Simon succeeded his father and became chief architect of the theme park. In 1962, Simon P. Henningsen unveiled the DIVAN 2 suspension, a unique and spectacular lamp named after the famous Tivoli restaurant. The suspension was subsequently awarded several Danish and international prizes. In the following years, Simon P. Henningsen extended his collaboration with LYFA and continued to explore theatrical light and color effects, as seen in the iconic Kassablanka and Nippon pendants. Today, Simon P. Henningsen's work is characterized by a distinctive whimsical, geometric aesthetic and the use of reflections and shimmering surfaces. His unique creations are collectors' items and are still admired around the world.
