Limited edition Copper Table Lamp

ph-35-25-kobber-bord-int-02With Louis Poulsen’s successful re launch of Poul Henningsen’s design icons, another excellent lamp is being added to the collection. Between 14 March and 15 June a copper version of a legendary 1929 table lamp design can be ordered.

Warm materials are currently a must in interior design, and this table lamp is sure to add warmth and comfort to any interior. The lamp comes with two top shades – an opal glass shade, which together with the two bottom glass shades provides soft comfortable diffuse light, and a polished solid copper shade with a white painted inner surface, which provides softly concentrated downward directed light on the table surface.

Every home should have multiple points of light in each room.Too many homes have too few points of light, resulting in an uncomfortable light. With extra light points you create small oases and emphasise the room’s dimensions in a better and more atmospheric way. Table lamps are easy to move around, and provide pleasant low intensity lighting, creating still life scenes on side tables, bookcases or sideboards.

The PH 3½-2½ copper table lamp comes with a high gloss surface, but the copper will develop a patina unique to its given setting, adding further personality, if desired. Many people want their copper lamps to develop a patina and Louis Poulsen has therefore chosen not to surface treat or lacquer the copper on this and many of our other copper light fixtures. The patination process begins from the moment of assembly, and proceeds during production and distribution. When a product is taken out of the box, it may thus have already begun oxidising. We provide a set of white cotton gloves with each light fixture, so people can avoid leaving fingerprints during installation.

This limited edition can only be ordered during the three months indicated, giving people the opportunity to supplement their collection of unique PH fixtures. Those who have not yet started can also obtain a unique piece of Danish design history, which despite its age, will have a modern and atmospheric appearance for several generations. A version with a painted shade and a silk brown copper housing will be launched at a later date, supplementing the PH 3½-3 pendant launched in September 2014.

The PH 3½-2½ copper table lamp is 46 cm tall. A practical height providing good working light with either type of shade. The three-layer opal glass shades are polished on the outside and sandblasted on the inside. The switch is located on the cord.

PH 3½-2½ copper table lamps will be made in response to incoming orders, and only the exact number ordered will be produced.

The RRP is £1110,- incl VAT

New PH 3½-3 Pendant – More than an Icon

Ikast 11Ikast 28

To mark Poul Henningsen’s 120th birthday on 9 September, Louis Poulsen is launching the new PH 3½-3 pendant.

The PH 3½-3 pendant is based on Poul Henningsen’s original drawings from the late 1920s and early 1930s, featuring his renowned three-shade system.

The pendant has metal shades, available in green, yellow, red and white. The fixture housing is silk mat brown and made of copper. All colours are based on Poul Henningsen’s colour universe. Like the designer, the fixtures are colourful!

As an extra feature, all shades have a white painted rolled edge, accentuating the familiar profile of the three-shade fixture and creating beautiful optical symmetry.

The shades are pressed at Louis Poulsen’s factory in Vejen, by Louis Poulsen’s own staff – a craft only very few are trained in.

Although the fixture is over 80 years old, it is both modern and classic at the same time, making it ideally suited to a broad range of interior design environments. It is seen as a charming, rustic, functional and unpretentious fixture. But it is much more.

Ikast 35

The PH 3½-3 pendant is a piece of Danish lighting design history. It provides functional, decorative light, and gives any interior a boost simply by being there, whether lit or unlit. It is beautiful alone, or grouped with other fixtures.

Poul Henningsen’s design is timeless. A journalist recently went as far as to call his design immortal! Irrespective – we are confident that the PH 3½-3 pendant will continue to inspire a lot of interior design – even in 10, 20 or 30 years.

Poul Henningsen was called the light artist, to which he responded: “If you create art, you are an artist – good or bad. And illuminating a room is most certainly art!”

Poul Henningsen’s fixtures are being sold around the world today in large numbers – art or no art!

The PH 3½-3 pendant has metal shades, available in green, yellow, red or white, with white rolled edges. The fixture housing is silk mat brown, and made of copper. The shade holder and screws are made of copper plated brass, to ensure adequate strength. It comes with an E27 socket, allowing it to be used with LED, energy saving and halogen bulbs Max. 100W. The recommended retail price is £632 incl VAT.

Energy class: A+ – E

Poul Henningsen’s 120th Birthday Celebrated in Style

LP_3.5-5_pendel_Eg+Ñ_-G_0002                  PH kobber interior UTH-G_02PH 3½-3 Copper

Poul Henningsen (PH), the social critic, review author, debate enthusiast and – most memorably – light designer, would have turned 120 on 9 September this year. To mark the occasion, his long-term partner Louis Poulsen is launching a limited edition of one of the first models in the famous PH System.

PH had an opinion about almost everything, and his propensity to argue his point often led him to being painted as both PH kobber interior UTH-G_01hero and villain of the piece. Most people agree, however, that with his lighting philosophy and trail-blazing light design, PH made an invaluable contribution to the creation of pleasant, convenient lighting systems. As early as the end of the 1920’s, PH had developed the formula for the distinctive lampshade profile that would become world-famous as System PH, and to which he remained true for the rest of his life. One of the first PH lights in the famous system was the PH 3-3 pendant from 1928. It was a model he created just before both he and Louis Poulsen achieved their popular breakthrough – and while his patent applications for System PH were still being processed by the authorities.

PH 3½ -3 is from 1929 and the special edition of PH 3½ -3 Louis Poulsen now launches, true to PH’s original drawings. For example, the glass sections are mounted in the original cast frame and likewise, the light housing has been reproduced down to the smallest detail, which means, for example, that the adjustment possibility of the height of the light source has been retained.

PH 3.5-3 Copper-2_26The shades on the limited edition are made of copper and glass. The two bottom shades are made of hand-blown, opal glass, while the top shade is made of untreated copper, which will take on a unique patina over time. The distinctive, rolled edge of the copper shade provides rigidity and a more robust appearance – a detail that can only be created by hand, and only by a select few craftsmen.

In fact, the pendant is packed with PH’s functional and well thought-out details, which make it both beautiful and interesting – both when illuminated and when switched off. The unique design is a unique part of design history, which has beautifully succeeded in preserving its aesthetic and functional relevance.

PH 3.5-3 Copper_12PH 3.5-3 Copper 02Louis Poulsen has previously issued limited editions of PH’s lights. All were remarkably well received, and often purchased as investments. However, as Pia Knudsen, Business Area Manager at Louis Poulsen, explains: “Lights are made to be used. We know that the re launch of the PH 3 ½-3 light is a dream come true for many PH collectors. At the same time, we are noticing a strong tendency to combine multiple periods in domestic design, with PH lights magnificently uniting classic and modern in this context.”

“As we see it, PH’s birthday is a perfect occasion to revisit the point where it all began for one of the most widely recognised light designers the world has ever seen. It has been a fascinating adventure to delve down into the treasure chest and see how a light from the end of the 1920’s can still produce absolutely beautiful light – even using modern LED light sources. Words such as ‘classic’ and ‘timeless’ take on a whole new meaning when you find yourself facing a design from the start of the last century and cannot help but admire the brilliance that went into its design and execution,” concludes Pia Knudsen.

The limited edition PH 3½–3 Copper is only available to order during the period 1 March to 31 May 2014.

PH 3½–3 Copper: Ø 330mm and H: 307mm

Energy class: A+-E.
