PH 3 1/2-2 1/2 Copper Floor – Limited Edition – SOLD


Poul Henningsen’s three-shade system, one of the most ground-breaking light designs, is turning 90. To celebrate tis occasion, Louis Poulsen has launched a copper limited edition of the PH 3 1/2 – 2 1/2 floor lamp.

The lamp comes with two different top shades – one made of mouth-blown opal class and one made of polished copper. Together with the two lower shades – also made of opal glass – the opal glass top shade provides pleasant, diffuse lighting, while the solid copper top shade provides more downward directed, soft lighting.

Inspiration: Celebration of the 90th anniversary of PH’s pioneering three-shade system– designed by Poul Henningsen in 1926

Craftsmanship: Poul Henningsen devoted most of his life to taming electric lighting. He based his three-shade design on the logarithmic spiral, in order to make optimal use of the point light source. He was constantly doing calculations and tests. The shape of the shades was determined by the way they had to shape and reflect the light, and the lamp was designed to be glare-free.

As part of the three-shade family this floor lamp in a limited copper edition provides beautiful comfortable lighting, as well as an unique opportunity to acquire a collector’s item.
