Louis Poulsen
Limited Edition PH 2/2 The Question Mark


Designed by Poul Henningsen
Manufactured by Louis Poulsen

Poul Henningsen’s pioneering work on the relationship between light structures, shadows, glare and colour reproduction and man’s need for light remains the foundation of the lighting theories still practised by Louis Poulsen. The limited edition comes in a brass finish paired with mouth-blown opal glass shades that create beautiful ambience and add character to any space. A classic, yet playful and figurative design that is unmistakably recognisable as a PH lamp.

Staying true to the original design and relevant to contemporary living, the function and flexibility of the table lamp is revealed through the elegant handle. The adjustable upper part of the lamp can be titled 45 degrees to the right or left by turning the handle on the middle of the stem’s curvature.

The lightly brushed brass frame has been left untreated as in the original lamp from 1931, allowing it to acquire a beautiful patina to enhance the table lamp’s authentic look and feel over time. Also made of brushed brass, a go-through switch is located on the stem near the base, alongside a brown textile cord that complements the exclusive design. PH’s initials are beautifully and discreetly engraved above the cord.

The PH light model numbers refer the shade size. In the ‘whole’ models (also referred to as ‘pure’), such as the 2/2, the top shade measures 20 cm, with corresponding lower shades. The proportions between the shades are roughly 3:2:1, which results in a rounder and more compact look compared to the ‘hybrid’ sizes such as the PH 2/1.
