General Information

From metal to glass.

Poul Henningsen designed this lamp shade consisting of three sections and presented it at a Paris exhibition in 1925. At the time the shades were still made from metal, but Henningsen soon replaced them with models featuring opal glass shades, in which around 12% of the light were omitted to the outside and therefore with a soft and diffuse light distribution it contributes to room illumination. The interiors of the shade segments are given a matt finish through sandblasting, as a result of which the majority of the light – also non-reflective – is directed downwards. The lamp shade consists of three sections: an upper segment of 28.5 cm diameter and two smaller segments underneath. Symbiotic connection. Poul Henningsen and Louis Poulsen.

The lamps of the Danish manufacturer Louis Poulsen have been a benchmark for decades. They owe their development to the ground-breaking work of Poul Henningsen (1894–1967). After giving up his studies as an architect he began working as a freelancer in the field of functional architecture, he wanted to create lamps which provided completely non-reflective, indirect light and at the same time offered an efficient light yield. He was able to achieve this aim through the cooperative partnership which began with Louis Poulsen in 1925 and lasted until his death. Henningsen performed pioneering work with regard to light structures, shades, reflection and light projection. In short, his work laid the foundation stone of the theory of light with which Louis Poulsen manufactures lamps today.

The lamps of the Danish manufacturer Louis Poulsen have been a benchmark for decades. They owe their development to the ground-breaking work of Poul Henningsen (1894–1967). After giving up his studies as an architect, he began working as a freelancer in the field of functional architecture. He followed his vision of creating an ideal lamp, a lamp that would provide completely non-reflective, indirect light and, at the same time, offer an efficient light yield. He was able to achieve this aim by cooperating with Louis Poulsen. The partnership began in 1925 and lasted until his death. Henningsen performed pioneering work concerning light structures, shades, reflection and light projection. In short, his work laid the foundation for the perception of light Louis Poulsen adheres to and set the framework for manufacturing lamps down to the present day.
