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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The gold standard of Dining Table Pendants I'm Danish. In Denmark, the majority of homes have this lamp over their dinner table. I was delighted to discover that I could buy it here. After you have had this lamp, you'll never like any other dinner table lamps. The small issues I had when installing it were: (1) It takes some effort to find the 200W incandescent light bulb that you need for this lamp (or a dimmable CFL or LED equivalent). (2) It took even more effort to find the tracklight power adapter I needed to hang it. It would be good if someone would offer a kit that included the track adapter and a cord already cut to the right length for hanging the lamp from an 8-foot apartment ceiling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Joy to Behold A true work of art. I kept the light on continuously for the first few days after it was installed just to admire it. In addition to its beautiful design, it is also extremely well engineered and precision manufactured. Examples: the main body of the fixture is attached to the bulb holder with a bayonet mount - a simple twist removes it for easy cleaning and bulb replacement; the bulb holder incorporates a screw adjustment to lower or raise the bulb so that it provides optimal light distribution; all edges are beaded - no risk of cuts. Overall, very satisfied with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Fixture is a True Classic Well what can I say. I knew I would not be disappointed with this purchase and I was not. The PH5 is truely a classic and looks great above my dining room table and would look great anywhere I would decide to hang it. The only thing negative I can say is that the company that ships the fixture (not YLighting) shipped it to the wrong address. How disappointed I was when I found this out. After calling my sales representative and informing her of this issue another one was shipped out immediately. The fixture arrives very well packed and it should since it is rather delicate since it is made of spun aluminum. Be careful not to dent it when installing it. You will not be disappointed with this fixture--go ahead buy one!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Classic design We installed this fixture in our dining room a number of years ago. Fits our '50's ranch perfectly. We have it on a dimmer switch and it really does a great job of lighting our dining room whether on its maximum setting or dimmed as an accent light. It does have a very precarious method of attaching the shade to the main fixuture by hooking three flanges on the shade around discs on the upper part. They barely hang onto the discs. Our shade fell off completely and dented very easily. Be very careful when dusting. Too expensive to replace the shade so will just live with it. Not everyone notices the fact it is not perfectly round anymore but for the two architects in the house it's the first thing we notice when walking in the room. That connection detail is a disappointment in an otherwise beautiful design.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not only a light, but a piece of art. The PH 5 has an elegant design which provides more than enough light while also serving as a piece of art. Installation was a breeze. The only reason I give this a 4 and not a 5 is due to how the bottom piece attaches to the top piece. Be very careful when installing. The bottom piece is held in place by sliding it under 3 round holders in the top piece. The bottom piece barely slides under these holders, and I almost dropped the bottom piece during installation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Piece of Art We spent a lot of time looking for an appropriate dining room light for our Saarinen Table. Several were tried, several were looked at This one exceeded our expectations The subtle blue and red shadings to interior components produces a beautiful light We have spotted the lamp fixture from the ceiling with Yellow spots to give the light a warm glow when not illuminated It really is a wonderful conversation piece and works well in our midcentury home

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic Mid-Century Modern Fixture This mid-50's designed Poulsen fixture is the perfect addition to the mid-century modern home I purchased this year. It's a simple, elegant pendant fixture, but the optics are absolutely amazing. It directs light down to the dining table as well as distributing diffused light in all directions - but no glare and no direct view of the lamp source. It's amazing that lighting manufacturers can't design fixtures this well today!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great modern fixture! I really love this light, we are using it as a dinning room table light and it is an art object in the space and a great conversation piece. Only comment is to take a look at other photos of the fixture as there is a blue accent on the inside face of the fins and a blue connector piece that connects the fins. These both look great but were a little bit of surprise from the y-lighting and mfr pictures
