PH Artichoke

The PH Artichoke was designed in 1958 by Poul Henningsen for the Langelinie Pavillonen, a modernist Copenhagen restaurant where it continues to enchant visitors today. With its world-famous unique sculptural design, the PH Artichoke is viewed as an international design icon. The fixture has 72 leaves, positioned so as to provide totally glare-free light from any angle. To ensure a high level of quality, much of the production process is still carried out by hand. The renowned light fixture has kept its original copper finish, which to this date illuminates spaces with its warm and ambient lighting. With the brushed and polished steel as well as white painted metal models, further members have been added to the PH Artichoke family, highlighting its versatility and timeless silhouette. In 2018, Louis Poulsen celebrated the design's 60th anniversary with an introduction of a beautiful brushed brass edition. When Henningsen originally designed the iconic PH Artichoke he opted for solid copper leaves with a satin finish and with a rose finish on the leaves' interiors. This combination lent an exceptional warmth to the lamp's organic form and beautifully reflected the light from its hidden source. The light from the copper rose edition, in particular, creates an inviting ambiance. In honor of Henningsen’s 125th birthday, Louis Poulsen is launching PH Artichoke in its original materials and finish. The copper rose edition will be available for sale exclusively in 2019 and will be offered in all PH Artichoke sizes. Each special edition will feature a Poul Henningsen signature engraving to commemorate the birthday.

The fixture provides 100% glare-free light. The 72 precisely positioned leaves form 12 unique rows of six leaves each. They illuminate the fixture as well as emitting diffused light with a unique pattern. The fixture provides decorative and comfortable lighting. For the energy saving LED variant, the quality of light and atmosphere surrounding the product is kept at the highest level.
