Poul Henningsen designed the three-shade system back in 1925-1926. 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. The PH 4/3 Metal Pendant was launched in 1966. Its design follows the general three-shade system based on the logarithmic spiral, with the centre of the light source positioned at the centre of the spiral. This light is a simplification of the light PH designed in 1929. The light won him the highest distinction at the world exhibition in Barcelona at that time. Metal pendants were produced in a number of formats and colours, and the underside of the shade was painted white to provide diffuse light. Metal pendants have been produced in a number of sizes and colours over the years. The only metal pendant included in the range today is the 4/3.

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
