About this piece

With graduating copper 3-shade form beneath domed copper canopy and support chain. This shade combination is designed to create warm light for the home

Manufactured by Louis Poulsen, Denmark, circa 1930

Light Years Ahead, the story of the PH Lamp by Louis Poulsen 1994
Original PH Sketch, pp 123

Pic 2 shows a sketch pad sheet presumed to be PH's first draft of the lamp, showing 3-shade constructions and a diagram showing the projected movement of light.

The light source is thus visibly softened to a glow, similar to that of an oil lamp and becomes glare-free, ideal for domestic use. Pic 5 shows a series of screen printed diagrams commissioned by PH that show the different quality of light and shadow emitted from a variety of fixtures. Pic 4 is the 600mm diameter 1929 catalogue entry for the PH 6/5 Lantern.
