To honour Poul Henningsen’s legacy and ingenious work with light, Louis Poulsen is pleased to present a limited edition of his PH 3/2 Table lamp, originally designed in 1927. The exclusive new edition features Italian mouth-blown, amber-coloured glass shades and a brushed brass frame, and will only be available from 1 October to 31 December 2018.
The warmth and beauty of coloured glass Louis Poulsen and Poul Henningsen initially introduced coloured glass lamps in the late 1920s to attract new customers. Then as now, the naturally varying colourations won people over with their warmth and individuality, highlighting the beauty of hand-craftsmanship. In 2017, Louis Poulsen brought back the classic amber-hued shades in the limited-edition PH 3½-3 pendant with a brass suspension. Now, Louis Poulsen is pleased to offer the warm, inviting colour scheme in the versatile and beloved PH 3/2 Table lamp.
“The amber-coloured glass accentuates the shade’s organic form. And because the glass of each lamp is crafted individually, each one varies ever so slightly from the others,” says Rasmus Markholt, Product & Design Director at Louis Poulsen. “This makes every limited-edition PH 3/2 Table lamp unique and as much a work of art as an ideal source of light. The colour scheme also reflects today’s retro trends and a growing desire to bring warm, metallic tones like gold and brass into contemporary interiors.”
The glass shades’ amber hue, glossy surface and sandblasted matt underside create a soft, evenly distributed glow. In addition to reflecting light downward and outward, the glass shades also allow it to penetrate upward, contributing to the overall room lighting. The resulting tone creates a warm, welcoming ambience and a sense of intimacy, reminiscent of the comforting effect of candlelight.
