Design by Poul Henningsen, 1967.
By Louis Poulsen.

PH 4/3 Table Lamp is a member of the PH 3-shade family which was 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 4/3 provides mainly downward illumination.

The PH 4/3 Table Lamp is composed of spun aluminum shades with a white, wet painted finish on outsides and matte white painted finish on undersides with a chrome-plated steel stem and black injection molded bakelite base with built-in on/off switch. Features a chrome-plated brass base. Ships with 9 feet of black power cord.

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.

Sale Louis Poulsen

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.

Nice Timeless design, but pricey

I really like the design of this lamp because it is contemporary; it emits a nice indirect light. It fits nicely in a somewhat contemporary Herman Miller office that we just installed for a home office.
Unfortunately as with many of these deign lights they are expensive.

Overall we are very happy with the table lamp.

It's a gorgeous Danish lamp!

I always had my eye on owning a PH lamp and now I finally got it in my living room next to a reading chair! The soft light is gentle to the eyes, and I'm delighted with both my purchase and the purchase experience.

Beautifully designed and functionally exact.

The lamp has such precise lines to its design profile. The catalogue photos accurately portray the look without exaggeration. YLightings package saved shipping damage and me a lot of follow up time to hassle with. Thanks for everything, I am very satisfied!
