POUL HENNINGSEN LIGHTS

POUL HENNINGSEN LIGHTS

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. His theories centred on 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.
