PH table lamp by Poul Henningsen (new)
Designer: Poul Henningsen
Director: Marc Forster
The dynamic looking PH table lamp by Poul Henningsen was originally designed in 1925 and has since been crafted by Denmark’s prestigious lighting manufacturer Louis Poulsen.
We spotted this table lamp with chrome base in M’s office in the Bond film Quantum of Solace, in the Prime Minster’s office in Borgen and at Captain Pike’s bedside (with brass base) in Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.
The lamp comes in 3 sizes: The PH 2/1 Table Lamp, the PH 3/2 and the PH 3½-2½ (there is also a floor lamp).
Showcasing an intricate tiered shade for a glare-free emanation, the diffuser is crafted from mouth-blown opal glass and helps to reflect and direct light downwards. Glossy on its surface and sandblasted to give a matte finish on the underside, the PH Table Lamp creates a subtly diffused light distribution.
The stem is available in a metallised brass stem in polished and black finishes, as well as a chrome stem.
Forming a lifelong collaboration with Louis Poulsen in 1925, Poul Henningsen is renowned across the globe for his innovative and radical approach to all his creative practices. A pioneer of Danish design, Henningsen also turned his hand to journalism and architecture throughout his career.
