Pair of Poul Henningsen PH Wall Brown Patinated Outdoor Lamps for Louis Poulsen

$6,796per set

About

Pair of Poul Henningsen PH wall brown patinated outdoor lamps for Louis Poulsen. The PH Wall is part of the revolutionary three shade system developed by Paul Henningsen in 1925-1926 where the metal shades of the lamp ingeniously cast a uniform and glare-free light distribution. Henningsen's innovative design sought to direct light to where it most needed while creating aesthetically pleasing soft shadows. The shades have a matte white painted inside to ensure diffuse, comfortable light distribution. Price is per pair. 1 pair in stock. Available in unlimited quantities. Out of stock lead time up to 10-12 weeks or more. Please note in-stock availability subject to change without notice. Accommodates a single medium base e26 bulb. UL listed for wet locations. 6.1 inch backplate mounts directly over a 4" octagonal American junction box. Please note that the copper surface is chemically treated in order to achieve a dark brown finish. This can result in an inconsistent surface finish prior to the product achieving full patina in outdoor settings over time. Only one representative example of the lamps is featured in the photos. Patina varies from lamp to lamp. Made to order.

Customization Options

Available in raw copper as well as verdigris, dark, and brown custom patinas for an additional fee.

About the Designer

Poul Henningsen

The name Poul Henningsen is synonymous with the best and most innovative modern Scandinavian lamps and other lighting. The Danish designer created a signature vocabulary of fixtures with tiered and layered shades in sculptural arrangements that are at once naturalistic and geometric. Henningsen grew up in a town on the outskirts of Copenhagen and studied architecture at the Technical University of Denmark. He would become a noted art critic, journalist and screenwriter, but his first love was lighting design. Henningsen’s childhood home was illuminated by oil lamps. When his family switched to electrified lighting, he was alarmed and repelled by the harsh glare cast by an incandescent bulb, and in his late teens he began conducting quasi-scientific experiments to measure which materials and methods best diffused or reflected light to give it a warm brightness. His work came to the attention of the lighting-fixtures firm Louis Poulsen, which sponsored the development of a prototype lamp. The design won a gold medal at the 1925 Paris Expositions Internationales des Arts Decóratifs et Industriels Modernes — from which the term Art Deco derives. The lamp, whose three-part shade is said to be inspired by the arrangement of a dinner plate atop a soup bowl atop a teacup, became the basis for Henningsen’s most successful design, the PH 4/3 desk lamp.All told, Henningsen would design some 100 lighting fixtures in his career. Some of his most notable creations are hanging lamps, which include the Septima (1929), a pendant composed of seven graduated frosted-glass layers; the Spiral (1942), made of a single ribbon of enameled aluminum; and the Artichoke lamp (1958), whose 70 glass or metal fins in a staggered and graduated arrangement on a central steel frame resemble those of its namesake. The last is likely Henningsen’s masterwork and an icon of mid-20th-century design. Like all Henningsen lighting designs, it is striking, sculptural and — thanks to his insistence on the primacy of the quality of the light cast — superbly functional.Find a collection of authentic Poul Henningsen table lamps, floor lamps and other lighting on 1stDibs.
