Poul Henningsen

Poul Henningsen


Poul Henningsen attended the Tekniske Skole in Copenhagen from 1911 until 1914 and then studied architecture at the Polyteknisk Laeranstalt from 1915 until 1917. In 1920 he started working as a journalist and critic for several newspapers and art publications, expressing radical social and cultural positions and formulating the basis for a functionalist aesthetic. His experimentation with lighting began during the same period, and his breakthrough came when he teamed up with Louis Poulsen & Co. for the 1925 International Exhibition in Paris, where his multi-shade lamp won first prize. This was the first in a long line of "PH” lamps (he designed more than a hundred by his death in 1967) intended for the delivery of no-glare lighting tailored for a vast variety of purposes.
