  • Louis Poulsen brings back Poul Henningsen's sophisticated seven-shade glass crown, based on the PH Septima 5 with optimized suspension and enhanced glass for better endurance and stability. When exhibited for the first time as a prototype at the Danish Museum of Decorative Art (now Designmuseum Danmark) in 1928, the poetic piece was publicly applauded.

    The PH Septima is Regarded as One of Poul Henningsen's Most Refined Pendants

    the glass
    The shades made of clear glass are treated to appear with alternate clear and frosted fields and are positioned so the frosted fields cover the clear fields underneath, allowing the shades to spread the light in a more diffused manner, while maintaining glare-free, downward directed light distribution. In addition, a neat round glass cup is placed at the top in order to prevent dust etc. from falling into the lamp.

    the shades
    Based on the PH three-shade system of the PH 5/5, the glass crown has four extra shades inserted between the three basic shades—all seven produced in very delicate, but also strong, Italian borosilicate glass.

    the size
    In 1931, a smaller PH Septima 4 was launched based on shade sizes from the PH 4/4 lamp, where the original PH Septima 5 is based on shade sizes from the PH 5/5.
    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.
