The largest singular pendant lamp in the classic 3 shade PH Lamp collection, the PH 4½-4 Pendant Lamp makes an impressive addition to your home. It is made up of three different lamp shades, layered in decreasing size from top to bottom. The largest having a width of approximately 45cm. Hand-blown from opal glass, each layer has a shiny upper surface and sandblasted lower surface to create uniform light distribution. The clever design eliminates glare by producing only reflected light. The result is a soft, warm illumination. The lamp's chrome stem and ceiling rosette are available in aluminium, black or gold finish. Other lamps in the PH collection includes the PH 3/2 table lamp, PH 3/2 pendant lamp, PH 3/2 Wall Lamp, PH 4½- 3½ table lampand PH 3/2 Academy pendant.
The story behind the Henningsen PH 4½-4 Pendant Lamp
Inspired by Henningsen's appreciation of the traditional gas lamp, the PH 4½-4 Pendant Lamp is a modernist take on a classic style. Functional, aesthetic and minimalist, the lamp follows the principles of Scandinavian minimalism. It was created as a group of pendant, table, wall and floor lamps known collectively as PH Lamps. The lamp's mathematical-sounding name comes from its dimensions. The '4½' refers to the 45cm width of the top shade, while the '4' indicates that the lower shades reflect the sizes of the 4/3 model.
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.
