Poul Henningsen

“Poul Henningsen, known by his initials ‘PH’ was an architect who created lighting series carrying his name. He can be said to have been the world’s first lighting designer and developer in intent at least; though it's difficult for us today with our modern understanding of architecture as well-versed because he devoted all career investigating how important light really is for well-being.

History of the Poul Henninsgon Artichoke Lamp

When architects Eva and Nils Koppel asked Danish luminary Poul Henningsen to design the lighting for a buzzy restaurant in Copenhagen’s Langelinie waterfront park, he revisited an old radical idea: designing ceiling lights that resembled artichokes. Just three months later, five finished versions were installed at Langelinie Pavilion with 72 copper leaves total; each used one lightbulb.

 

Features of the Artichoke pendant light

Artichoke lamp are an international design icon. They're also designed with 72 leaves, making them totally glare-free and providing high quality light from any angle - a process that still proceeds by hand! The original copper finish ensures warmth in spaces lit up by these renowned lights; white painted metal models add even more versatility to your home decor while polished steel & brushed stainless steel offer fresh alternatives for those who want something different. The world's most popular hanging light just got better, because now you can choose between 4 available finishes. In 2018, Louis Poulsen celebrated the design's 60th anniversary with an introduction of a beautiful brass edition. When Henningsen originally designed it in 1968 he opted for solid copper leaves and rose-gold interiors that beautifully reflected light from its hidden source - just like how these new lights will reflect your emotions! The Copper Rose Edition features gentle curves made more organic by shaving off pieces here or there so they can gently touch each other without sharp angles; this allows them to capture even less unwanted attention while still maintaining elegant lines overall.

How to restore an old artichoke lamp

  1. Take out the leaf; you first have to take the leaf out of the lamp. To do this, you have to do is pull the wire. You can bend the ends open with pliers.
  2. Remove the kinks; as you have the leaf out, you need to remove the kinks. You shouldn’t pull out the kinks with a hammer! If you hit with a hammer, the material would be damaged.
  3. Rub out the kinks; you could press them out of the copper. Put a piece of strong paper between the hammer and leaf to avoid bruises. Then rub it over the leaf like you would do with an iron. If this works, you can clean the leaf and put it back. Never polish the copper side. The browned copper is a valuable patina that reveals the age of the lamp. If you would remove it, I think it would significantly reduce its value. A collector never would buy a lamp with high gloss!
  4. Cut wire; cut the wire to the right size, but you have to first measure the width of the wire tunnel on the leaf. Take the length of the tunnel and add the double thickness of the rail (the large Artichoke has 3mm rails), plus 2x 5mm. These 5mm are to be bent the ends to 90 degrees, to fix the wire.
  5. Reinstall and finish; you have to bend the wire by 5mm, 90 degrees on one side and push it at the lamp through the rail, then the tunnel and again through the rail. You can now bend the second end over to 90 degrees again.
