The PH Artichoke is a classic masterpiece created by Poul Henningsen in 1958. Henningsen is considered one of the leading figures of artistic life in the period between the two world wars. Already during his lifetime his designs were produced by Louis Poulsen, which has not changed to this day.
Nearly as popular and just as stylish as Henningsen's most famous work, the PH pendant lamp, the Artichoke presents itself with a structure of twelve steel arches. There are 72 copper sheets placed in twelve circular rows, each with six leaves.
Each row is precisely positioned, so that all 72 sheets can cover each other, creating an all-round glare-free light whose light source is hidden from every perspective. The light is transmitted to the underlying leaves and reflected, creating a distinctive, unique lighting. The first artichokes were developed for a restaurant in Copenhagen called Langelinie Pavilion - and they still hang there today.
The cone-shaped PH lights are also available in the "Copper" version.
