Louis Poulsen celebrates 90th anniversary of PH's pioneering three-shade system with launch of copper PH 3½-2½ Floor Lamp
One of the most ground-breaking light designs – PH's three-shade system – is turning 90. To mark the occasion, Louis Poulsen is launching a copper limited edition of the PH 3½-2½ Floor Lamp. As part of the three-shade family – now numbering over 20 lamps – the copper edition also provides beautiful comfortable lighting, as well as a unique opportunity to acquire a collector's item. The 3½-2½ Copper Floor Lamp will be sold for a limited period from 1 October to 31 December 2016.
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.
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.
