Louis Poulsen mid century modern PH Artichoke lighting pendant in White.
Made by Louis Poulsen Lighting in Denmark.
The White PH Artichoke lamp (a Danish modern light fixture with white lacquered artichoke-shades) is considered to be a classical Louis Poulsen masterpiece designed by Poul Henningsen more than 40 years ago. The PH Artichoke is the ultimate style icon. The structure of the PH Artichoke is made of twelve steel arches. On this structure Poul Henningsen placed 72 "leaves" in twelve circular rows with six blades in each row. Because each row is staggered from the previous, all 72 leaves are able to "cover for each other". This design allows viewing the fixture from any angle without being able to see the light source located in the center of the PH Artichoke. The original PH Artichokes were developed for a restaurant in Copenhagen called the Langelinie Pavilion, and they are still in use today. The PH Artichoke is a classic icon of mid century modern Scandinavian design. The PH Artichoke is part of the Design Collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Always stylish, effortlessly elegant and uniquely beautiful, the PH Artichoke lamp is a modern classic that evokes a world of luxury and sophistication. To be treasured forever.
The PH Artichoke. The most desirable things in life have a precious, enduring beauty that should be treasured forever. Louis Poulsen's PH Artichoke offers such a timeless allure. The PH Artichoke's undeniable elegance is reflected in the delicate modernist composition of 72 "leaves" which was inspired by the structure of an Artichoke. The PH Artichoke displays an enduring style and elegance that is destined to captivate everyone who sees it. Strikingly beautiful, the PH Artichoke lamp is so much more than an ordinary object that provides light, it is indeed in itself a work of art.
PH Artichoke (1958) is a 360-degree glare free luminaire created by 72 leaves, which shield the light source, redirect and reflect the light onto the underlying leaves, giving distinct, unique illumination. Suspension type: 3x stainless steel aircraft cables. Suspension length: 12’. Canopy: White. Cord type: 3-conductor, 18 AWG PVC power cord. The PH Artichoke lamp ships in a wooden crate to ensure safe arrival. Customer will also receive (1) matching light bulb.
