IN HONOR OF PH!!
The iconic Danish designer Poul Henningsen would have turned 120 years on the 9 September this year! On that occasion Louis Poulsen has decided to launch a limit version of one of the first lamps in the PH system. The shade and socket of the lamp is made of copper and the middle and lower shade is hand-blown glass. The copper is unpainted which will add a marvelous the patina to the lamp over time.
This is really a unique lamp – pricy but a piece of art, its DKK 9000 – The lamp is sold only for a limited period: 1 March to 31 May 2014 and each lamp is produced by order, so deliver time can be up to 4 months! If I am lucky to get ´tax-money´I really will consider it – its not only an interior treasure its a hanging ´save up´an investment – who am I trying to convince 😉
You can still find Poul Henningsen original lamps around at auctions, in vintage shops and flee-markets!! Ill go hunting for them and let you know where to go 😉
HAPPY READING AND HAPPY DAY!
