Design by Poul Henningsen, 1926.
By Louis Poulsen.

PH 3/2 is a member of the PH 3-shade family originally conceived in the winter of 1925-26 for a large exhibition hall in Copenhagen, Denmark called "Forum" and is based on the principle of a reflecting multi-shade system, creating a harmonious and glare-free illumination. The shades are drawn over a logarithmic spiral, with the center of the light source placed in the spiral's focal point.

The PH 3/2 Pendant Light features hand-blown white opal glass shades, which have been sandblasted on the undersides to create uniform light distribution. Available in black chrome plated or high lustre chrome plated suspensions. Ships with a white canopy and 12 feet of black PVC power cord.

Louis Poulsen

Formed over seventy years ago when renowned Danish architect, Poul Henningsen, came together with Louis Poulsen and began to combine a brilliant mix of technology and design to craft influential lighting.

Poul Henningsen

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 reproduction¬ócompared to man's need for light remains the foundation of the lighting theories still practiced by Louis Poulsen Lighting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the most beautiful pendant fixtures The entire line of Louis Poulsen fixtures are classics and very well designed. I've just purchased and installed two of these pendants for my own use over my 9-foot long kitchen counter. I am completely pleased with them. The size of the 3/2 is perfect. They do require a simple assembly before installation. I have them operating on a dimmer switch and so the quality of light, using a 75-watt incandescent bulb is quite spectacular! My only criticism is that the fixture does not come with some sort of a simple cleat to fix the length of the cord. I improvised by using an alligator clip on the cord in the ceiling junction box. The enclosed instructions indicate that you should tie a knot in the cord which is sort of silly for a fixture in this price range and impossible to do if you want to hang two pendants at precisely the same height! Poulsen should be able to easily correct this simple oversight by including a proper cleat with the fixture!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Must admit, not quite what I expected I ordered the smaller of the lamps for a small hallway. It gives enough light but seeing the bulb so prominently and seeing the clips for the shade takes away from the intrigue. Wasn't quite worth the cost. The disadvantage of ordering online. YLighting was excellent to deal with, prompt in delivery and matching another ompany's online price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from elegant One of Poul Henningsen's two most perfect designs - this and the artichoke. I used these over my own kitchen island and will never never tire of looking at it. Fear not about bulb changing, the glass is not as fragile as it appears.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic Danish Modern Light, worth the price! This is simply a must have for a danish modern design or maybe even a mid century modern renovation. Pair it with other items from its family for a great lighting package. The glow from the glass is sexy...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A modern classic Am using the fixture as a pendant in a bathroom and love the glow. Already had a Poulsen in my dining room and loved the idea of adding another to my collection.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks great. Overall I'm pleased with the light. The shades are delicate and care must be taken with them. I don't look forward to changing the bulbs.
