Standing at 1 metre 30cm tall, our Poul Henningsen style 3½ - 2½ Floor Lamp is a striking addition to any home. The lamp features a three-tier curved opal glass shade that softly diffuses light. The top and widest glass layer is approx. 30-35cm, hence the 3½ in the title. The tubular stem of the lamp is constructed from chrome and comes in a choice of three finishes - aluminium, gold or black.
The story behind the PH 3½ - 2½ Floor Lamp
Poul Henningsen designed the 3½ - 2½ Floor Lamp in the mid-1920s as part of a collection of lamps called the PH 3 series. The lamps were all designed to diffuse light and create a more peaceful, atmospheric lighting experience. The mathematical-sounding names refer to the different diameters of the lamps' shades.
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Often said to be the first lighting architect, Danish designer, Poul Henningsen devoted much of his life to exploring the importance of light for well-being. Believing people should not be subject to the direct glare of an electrical light source, he focused on creating lamps that produced glare-free illumination. His self-titled PH series was his most famous collection and included the PH 3/2 Table Lamp, the PH Artichoke, the PH5 and PH 3½ - 2½ Floor Lamp.
