Poul Henningsen designed the Louis Poulsen PH Artichoke hanging lamp years ago. It is considered a classical masterpiece.
The design came to life in 1958 for the opening of the Langelinie Pavillonen restaurant in Copenhagen and it continues to enchant guests to this day.
This is a first edition in beautiful brushed stainless steel, where the warm light makes the fins sparkle beautifully.
The precisely placed brushed stainless steel leaves that were attached entirely by hand ensure that there is no glare at all with this lamp. They also create a unique atmosphere due to the special shadows that come from this lamp.
They illuminate the fixture and emit diffuse light with a unique pattern.
The fact that you cannot see the light source was revolutionary at the time. Henningsen was one of the first to design a lamp that not only served its function, but was also an enchanting object in the room.
The Artichoke hanging lamp is not only decorative, it is also a design statement. The lamp has been an icon in the lighting world since 1958 and has become an indispensable part of the collective memory.
