About this designer: Poul Henningsen
Poul Henningsen was born in Copenhagen to the famous Danish actress Agnes Henningsen.

He started practicing traditional functionalistic architecture, but over the years his professional interests changed to focus mainly on lighting which is what he is most famous for.

To this day, Louis Poulsen Lighting still benefits from his genius.
