It was six decades ago that the lighting design pioneer Poul Henningsen brought three revolutionary modern illumination products to the table in the form of the PH Artichoke, the PH 5 and the PH Snowball. Now, in 2018, Louis Poulsen celebrates the designer’s innovative design contribution with several special editions, including the PH Artichoke in brass, the PH 5 and PH 5 Mini in copper…

These structural lights are ideal for creating a statement without overpowering a space. With their new metallic materials, you’ll love the warm ambience they create.

“The year 1958 was an incredible one for architecture in design around the world – and certainly in Denmark. There was something in the water: Arne Jacobsen, for instance, created an array of design icons, which we produce to this day, for his SAS Royal Hotel masterpiece in Copenhagen. And Poul Henningsen lit up the world with three completely unprecedented pendant concepts. His thinking about the way design shapes light has informed generations of lighting designers, not to mention the Louis Poulsen story. So we are honoured to have this opportunity to showcase how relevant his captivating, organic forms continue to be in the modern world.”  Rasmus Markholt, Product & Design Director at Louis Poulsen.

The new arrivals will be available from September 2018.
