Designer lamp made of mouth-blown glass
The PH 4½-3½ floor lamp by Louis Poulsen is a noble lamp in Scandinavian design. The three-part shade is made of mouth-blown opal glass and casts a beautiful glow in any room - whether in the living room, bedroom or workspace. The designer Poul Henningsen took the logarithmic spiral as a model to create a particularly beautiful light on a scientific basis. Today, the lamp, which was designed in the 1920s, is a versatile classic and an integral part of interiors all over the world.
Highest quality materials for first-class design
The lamp was designed based on the principle of a reflective three-shade system that directs most of the light downwards. The shades are made of mouth-blown, opalised, three-layered glass, glossy on the outside and matt sandblasted on the inside, resulting in a soft and diffuse light distribution. The base and stem are made of polished chrome-plated brass and steel.
Architecture and light: Poul Hennigsen
Poul Henningsen was born in Copenhagen, the son of the famous Danish actress Agnes Henningsen. He did not graduate as an architect, but studied at the Frederiksberg Technical School from 1911-1914 and then at the Technical College in Copenhagen from 1914-17. He also began to apply traditional functionalist architecture. However, his professional interest soon focused mainly on lighting design - and that is what he is famous for.
