“The future comes by itself, progress does not.” This was clear to Poul Henningsen when he proposed the future of the lighting industry. The story began with this conident young man approaching the established lighting manufacturer Louis Poulsen. After proposing his modern lighting vision, he and Poulsen started a life-long partnership from which the PH lamp was created. Premiering in the Forum in Copenhagen, it went on to the Exhibition of Decorative Art in Paris in 1925, winning a gold medal and accolades throughout theindustry. This epoch-making design truly required innovative thinking and manufacturing practice but despite his success, he was not satisied. One evening in the winter of 1925-26, Henningsen shaded his eyes from streetlamp glare and suddenly noted that by making shades with a logarithmic curve the light would be glare-free. His vision was realized with matte inish in the beautiful but afordable PH Lamp. It has become a standard item in oices, respectable homes and in many public spaces worldwide.
