  • The Limited Edition PH 2/2 Question Mark Lamp comes in brass paired with mouth-blown opal glass shades that create beautiful ambience and add character to any space. A classic, yet playful and figurative design that is unmistakably recognizable as a PH lamp.

    Staying true to the original design and relevant to contemporary living, the function and flexibility of the table lamp is revealed through the elegant handle. The adjustable upper part of the lamp can be titled 45 degrees to the right or left by turning the handle on the middle of the stem's curvature.

    The lightly brushed brass frame has been left untreated as in the original lamp from 1931, allowing it to acquire a beautiful patina to enhance the table lamp's authentic look and feel over time. Also made of brushed brass, a go-through switch is located on the stem near the base, alongside a brown textile cord that complements the exclusive design. PH's initials are beautifully and discreetly engraved above the cord.

    The PH light model numbers refer the shade size. In the 'whole' models (also referred to as 'pure'), such as the 2/2, the top shade measures 20 cm, with corresponding lower shades. The proportions between the shades are roughly 3:2:1, which results in a rounder and more compact look compared to the 'hybrid' sizes such as the PH 2/1.
    Poul HenningsenPoul Henningsen (PH) was born in Copenhagen by the famous Danish actress Agnes Henningsen. He never graduated as an architect, but studied at The Technical School at Frederiksberg in 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. 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.
