Danish designer Poul Henningsen, (often referred to by his initials, ‘PH’) was completely and utterly obsessed with light. To be more specific was obsessed with the new technology of the electric light bulb, growing up in a remote Danish town without modern power. Henningsen strove to recreate the soft gas lighting of his youth in modern electric fixtures. He is thought to be one of the world’s first lighting architects, devoting his career to investigating its importance and how it could enhance our wellbeing.
It wasn’t in 1924 that Henningsen designed his first ever multi-shade lamp, becoming known as the "PH-lamp". The design was based on the scientific analysis of a shade's function, with the size, shape, and position being determined by the distribution of light and amount of glare. It was in 1925 the design won a competition for light fitting at the Paris World Exhibition, with Henningsen maintaining the principle of the lamp throughout his lifetime. His theories centred around the observer not being subject to direct glare from an electric source. He would often use a series of layers to spread the light and hide the bulb, creating a softer ambience that diffused the glare.
