Design by Poul Henningsen, 1947.By Louis Poulsen.
The PH 80 Floor Lamp was put into production after Poul Henningsen's death, as a celebration of what would have been his 80th birthday. Being a man of the future, Henningsen had been working with plastic materials as the new material for his fixtures. The PH 80 Floor Lamp is made of opal acrylics, instead of glass, with the intention of making a less expensive product with the same lighting characteristics as a glass fixture.
The PH 80 Floor Lamp emits diffused light with the majority directed downward. The opal acrylic shades provide comfortable lighting, while the red hue of the top reflector gives the light a warm glow. The PH 80 Floor Lamp is composed of a black base with a chrome plated steel stem with white opal acrylic bottom shades and a black polycarbonate top shade. Ships with 9 feet of cord with on/off switch.

Poul Henningsen was born in Copenhagen to the famous Danish actress Agnes Henningsen. He never graduated as an architect, but studied at The Technical School at Frederiksberg, Denmark from 1911-14, and then at Technical College in Copenhagen from 1914-17.
He started practicing traditional functionalistic architecture, but over the years his professional interests changed to focus mainly on lighting. He also expanded his field of occupation into areas of writing, becoming a journalist and an author. For a short period at the beginning of WWII, he was the head architect of the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen. But like many other creative people, he was forced to flee Denmark during the German occupation but soon became a vital part of the Danish colony of artists living in Sweden.
His lifelong collaboration with Louis Poulsen Lighting began in 1925 and lasted until his death. To this day, Louis Poulsen Lighting still benefits from his genius. Poul Henningsen was also the first editor of the company magazine "NYT". The CEO of Louis Poulsen at the time, Sophus Kaastrup-Olsen, gave the magazine to PH as a gift because he had been terminated from the Danish newspaper he worked for (his opinions were too radical).
Poul Henningsen's pioneering work concerning the relations between light structures, shadows, glare, and color reproductioncompared to man's need for light remains the foundation of the lighting theories still practiced by Louis Poulsen Lighting.See other lights/products from Poul Henningsen
Louis Poulsen's approach to architectural development began with its collaboration with famous and well respected lighting designers, like Poul Henningsen. Together they created a lighting and product philosophy encompassed by the words "function", "comfort" and "ambience". This philosophy continues to influence simple and functional product design, which focuses on well-being and the perception of artificial light, which leads to the creation of unique lighting environments. Louis Poulsen's approach to lighting lies in a very strict and uncompromising product philosophy grounded in simplicity. All elements must serve a light-related purpose. The result is a product line that displays simple and discreet designs ideally suited to all types of architecture across cultural styles.
