ABOUT THE POUL HENNINGSEN PH 2.1 STEM FITTING PENDANT

Elaborate and ornate, the Poul Henningsen PH 2.1 Stem Fitting Pendant is aesthetically beautiful, but also serves as an incredibly effective lamp. The innovative three-shade system reflects light downwards, creating a powerful glow that won't overwhelm a living space. To achieve that distinctive effect, the lamp is gloss on top but matte underneath. This is mid-century Danish lighting design from one of the most exciting periods in design history. The combination of polished chrome and white also makes it easy to incorporate into any Scandinavian-inspired interior.

THE STORY BEHIND THE POUL HENNINGSEN PH 2.1 STEM FITTING PENDANT

Poul Henningsen trained as an architect and then industrial designer. Unlike his contemporaries who were exploring unusual shapes and bulbs, he was interested in the humble shade; blocking, spreading and directing light. The breakthrough that motivated the 2.1 Stem Fitting Pendant was using mathematical shapes to fold pleats into complex organic creations. The PH 2.1 is a hybrid model intended for home use and borrows from the mathematical idea of a logarithmic spiral. What that means in relation to lighting is that, the lamp is powerful, subtle and completely glare-free. Some of Poul Henningsen's most iconic designs also include The Artichoke Lamp and The PH 5 Pendant.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER

Poul Henningsen

1894-1967 (Denmark)

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.
