PH 3/3 Pendant, Four Variants
- The Designer
- The Maker
With the PH 3/3 Pendant, Louis Poulsen reintroduces the whole sized pendants based on Poul Henningsen's revolutionary System PH, also known as the three-shade system, from 1925-26. The pendant is characterised by a rounder look due to how the top shade of approximately 30 cm corresponds with the middle and lower shade in the proportions of 3:2:1. This design makes the PH 3/3 pendant particularly glare-free and elegant—perfect for any room at home or commercial spaces like flagship stores, meeting rooms, restaurants, hotel rooms and lobbies. The PH 3/3 pendant comes in three variations that direct glare and shadow in different ways. In three-layered mouth-blown opal glass, a warm glow around the pendant is created. In contemporary black painted metal with white inners sides, the light is fine and primarily downward directed. In the variation with a metal top shade contrasting the translucent middle and lower shades in opal glass, a warm glow as well as downward directed light is created. If you prefer an even softer light distribution, the included diffuser in frosted glass can easily be inserted.

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. He also expanded his field of occupation into areas of writing, becoming a journalist and an author. For a short period at the beginning of WWII, he was the head architect of the Tivoli Gardens project in Copenhagen. But like many other creative people, he was forced to flee Denmark during the German occupation but soon became a vital part of the Danish colony of artists living in Sweden.
His lifelong collaboration with Louis Poulsen began in 1925 and lasted until his death in 1967. To this day, Louis Poulsen still benefits from his genius. Poul Henningsen was also the first editor of the company magazine "NYT". The CEO of Louis Poulsen at the time, Sophus Kaastrup-Olsen, gave the magazine to PH as a gift after he had been terminated from another Danish newspaper - his opinions were too radical.
Poul Henningsen's pioneering work concerning the relationship between light structures, shadows, glare and color reproduction, compared to man's need for light, remains the foundation of the lighting theories still practiced by Louis Poulsen.
Louis Poulsen believes in passionate craftsmanship that produces quality lighting and design products that are pleasing to the eye and to the light.
