Louis Poulsen PH Artichoke
27 March 2014
The Louis Poulsen PH Artichoke has a unique sculptural design, and is viewed as an international design icon. The PH Artichoke was designed in 1958 by famous Danish designer Poul Henningsen for the Langelinie Pavillonen restaurant in Copenhagen, where it still hangs today. The Artichoke has 72 leaves, positioned so as to provide totally glare-free light from any angle. To ensure a high level of quality, much of the production process is still carried out by hand.
