Poul Henningsen’s PH Artichoke Glass was launched in 2008. The origins of the glass version date back to 1927-31 when Poul Henningsen developed the PH Septima glass light – a pendant with seven glass shades which Louis Poulsen manufactured up until 1940 when it was discontinued due to a lack of raw materials during the war. When Poul Henningsen was asked to develop a light for the Langelinie Pavillonen restaurant in 1958, he was able to finish the project in three months, because PH Artichoke Glass is based on the ideas in Septima. Septima consisted of seven shades made from clear glass with six sand-blasted regions. In PH Artichoke, the shades were grouped into ’picket fences’, as Poul Henningsen called them, and the light was made of copper. PH Artichoke Glass, which is made of handmade sandblasted glass, is closer to Septima in its expression. The light is diffused through the leaves, making it soft and comfortable. Whether the light is switched on or off, the leaves have a transparent ice-like appearance, adding elegance and lightness to the room.

Poul Henningsen was born in Copenhagen to the famous Danish actress Agnes Henningsen. He never graduated as an architect, but studied at The Technical School at Frederiksberg, Denmark from 1911-14, and then at Technical College in Copenhagen from 1914-17. He started practicing traditional functionalistic architecture, but over the years his professional interests changed to focus mainly on lighting which is what he is most famous for. He also expanded his field of occupation into areas of writing, becoming a journalist and an author. For a short period at the beginning of WWII, he was the head architect of the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen. Poul Henningsen's pioneering work concerning the relations between light structures, shadows, glare, and colour reproduction-compared to man's need for light remains the foundation of the lighting theories still practiced by Louis Poulsen Lighting.View All Products
