The classic PH 4 1/2-4 floor lamp from Louis Poulsen features an innovative three-shade system developed by Poul Henningsen in the 1920s. The three mouth-blown opal glass shades with a sandblasted inner surface form a sculptural lamp that provides a pleasant, glare-free light and brings timeless elegance to any space. The high lustre chrome base gives the PH 4 1/2-4 floor lamp a modern, sophisticated look.
Poul Henningsen was born in Copenhagen by the famous Danish writer Agnes Henningsen. He never graduated as an architect, but studied at The Technical School at Frederiksberg, Denmark from 1911-14, and then at Technical College in Copenhagen from 1914-17. He started practicing traditional functionalistic architecture, but over the years his professional interests changed to focus mainly on lighting which is what he is most famous for.
