By Louis Poulsen.

Considered a classical masterpiece, PH Artichoke is a 360-degree glare-free luminaire which gives distinct, unique illumination. Created by 72 leaves in 12 circular rows that shield the light source, and redirect and reflect the light onto the underlying leaves. The original PH Artichokes were designed for a restaurant in Copenhagen called the Langelinie Pavilion, where they still hang today.

Available in copper, stainless steel (brushed and lacquered) or white (wet-painted) finishes in four sizes ‐ small, medium, large or extra large. Leaves of die-cut copper, laser-cut stainless steel or die-cut steel. Top shade is white, spun steel. Frame is high-luster chrome-plated laser-cut steel. Suspension is high-luster chrome-plated spun aluminum. 12 foot suspension by 3 fine stainless steel aircraft cables. White ceiling canopy which mounts to 4" octagonal junction box. 12 foot long 3-conductor, 18 AWG PVC covered power cord (Black for copper version or white for Stainless steel and White versions).

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.
