Poul Henningsen designed his first lights back in 1925-1926 for an exhibition in Paris. His work with Louis Poulsen continued right up until his death in 1967. Throughout his life, PH sought to create glare-free light, direct light where it was most needed, and create soft shadows, using incandescent bulbs as a light source. PH Louvre was designed for the Adventist Church in Skodsborg, Denmark in 1957. The globe-shaped fixture is made up of 13 shades mounted on four supports. It is a simplification of an earlier light Poul Henningsen designed in 1942, called the Spiral. Lighting control WIRELESS BLUETOOTH. Also available in 3000K Color temperature on request.

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
