About this designer: Poul Henningsen
Poul Henningsen
Poul Henningsen was born in Copenhagen to the famous Danish actress Agnes Henningsen. He never graduated as an architect, but studied at The Technical School at Frederiksberg, Denmark from 1911-14, and then at Technical College in Copenhagen from 1914-17. 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. He also expanded his field of occupation into areas of writing, becoming a journalist and an author. His lifelong collaboration with Louis Poulsen Lighting began in 1925 and lasted until his death. To this day, Louis Poulsen Lighting still benefits from his genius.

Description

Poul Henningsen designed the three-shade system back in 1925-1926. The first lights using the system were designed in cooperation with Louis Poulsen for an exhibition in Paris. Throughout his life, Poul sought to create glare-free light, direct light where it was most needed, and create soft shadows, using incandescent bulbs as a light source. He was the first person to pursue a scientific approach to light and use the logarithmic spiral as a basis. By using a design based on the logarithmic spiral, he achieved even distribution of light over the entire curve of the shade.
