Perfect on its own or as a trio over a dining table, the PH 3/2 Pendant Lamp brings elegance and style to your home. A modern take on a traditional gas lamp, the light features a cleverly constructed three-layer shade that creates a warm and natural light. Each petal-shaped layer is hand-blown from opal glass then sandblasted underneath for uniform light distribution. The polished chrome fitting is available in aluminium, black or gold coloured finishes. The PH Lamp collection includes the PH 3/2 table lamp, PH 3/2 Wall Lamp, PH 4½- 3½ table lamp and PH 3/2 Academy pendant.
The story behind the Henningsen PH 3/2 Pendant Lamp
One of the most prolific lighting designers of his time, Henningsen created a series of '3 shade' lamps. All featured the same signature characteristics of 3 petal-shaped shades but in different sizes. His PH 3/2 range was introduced in 1925-26 at the Forum exhibition centre in Copenhagen. It was an addition to the original PH Lamp or 'Paris Lamp' showcased in 1924 at the Paris World Exhibition. The name 3/2 refers to 3:2:1 ratio of the lamp's 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.
