Poul Henningsen design for Louis Poulsen, 1958.
PH Artichoke is the fruit of architect Poul Henningsen’s deep reflection on the diffusion of light and domestic lighting.
Considered a classical masterpiece thanks to its elegant, artichoke shaped structure, the pendant also has all the qualities of a perfect lamp.
It is composed of 72 leaves, delicately arranged in groups of six around the twelve steel arches, themselves carefully staggered.
A very limited number of qualified people are in charge of placing the leaves at their extremely precise angle and position. This arrangement allows for clear visibility of the pendant from any angle, without ever being directly in contact with the source of light, hidden at the center of the structure. The light diffused is soft, warm and glare-free.
The PH Artichoke pendants were first designed for the Pavillion Langeline restaurant in Copenhaguen, where they are still to be admired today.
The PH Artichoke lamp is available in three sizes 48cm, 60cm, 72cm and 84cm – and three finishes: stainless steel, white or copper.
Ø480mm/H 497mm, Ø600 mm, Ø720 mm, Ø840 mm.
