PH table lamp by Poul Henningsen (vintage / pre-owned)
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 a PH table lamp with chrome base in M’s office in the Bond film Quantum of Solace.
The lamp comes in 3 sizes: The PH 2/1 Table Lamp, the PH 3/2 Table Lamp and the PH 3½-2½ Glass Table Lamp. (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.
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.
