Louis Poulsen pays tribute to Poul Henningsen with the launch of limited editions PH 3/3 Pendant and PH 3/2 Table in exclusive brass and mouth-blown opal glass.
December 22nd, 2022
Every year, the highly revered lighting brand Louis Poulsen releases a limited edition luminaire. In 2021, it was Poul Henningsen’s PH2/2 Question Mark with a brass frame and opal glass shades. This year, Louis Poulsen once again celebrates the Danish architect by adopting the same finish and glass shades as last year’s to two limited edition fixtures, making them wonderful collector’s items.
The PH 3/3 Limited Edition Pendant and PH 3/2 Limited Edition Table are sure to imbue warmth and a golden glow to any space, exuding an understated cosy luxury. Both lamps are marked with PH’s initials on the socket house, while the PH3/3 Limited Edition Pendant comes with a specially designed brass canopy for a unique character. Over time, the brass on both lamps will patinate beautifully and add to their charm. But the original finish can also be maintained if polished now and again.
The timeless PH 3/3 Pendant design is characterised by Henningsen’s reflective three-shade design from the 1920s. He designed it to hang high in a space, in order for it to emit a pleasant general light, not unlike that of the chandeliers in the early 20th century, before electric light became common.
A combination of aesthetics and functionality, the PH 3/3 Pendant showcases Henningsen’s ongoing studies of glare-free lighting with even horizontal radiation for an indirect luminescence. This led to the creation of a rational, modular lighting system – System PH – in which the size, material and surfaces of the shades could be combined according to purpose.
This modularity is seen translated to the PH 3/2 Limited Edition Table. Looking back, the PH 3/2 Table was introduced a year after developing the System PH. At the time, Henningsen started using opal glass shades too. And two years later, he began combining materials like copper and glass in his designs to further cater for lighting needs.
With the introduction of the limited editions PH 3/2 Table and PH 3/3 Pendant in 2022, Louis Poulsen continues Henningsen’s line of thinking. The combination of brass and three-layered mouth-blown opal glass in both editions pay tribute to the architect’s earlier designs. Timeless in design, both lamps imbue any space with a fashionable golden touch and illuminate modern homes with equal amount of flair and ease. Not to mention, they make for great holiday gifts to yourself or your loved ones, who will treasure them for a lifetime.
The limited editions of PH 3/3 Pendant and PH 3/2 Table are available in stores now.
