Description

PH CONTRAST - a beautiful large top tier Danish design piece by the "Master of Light" himself - Poul Henningsen in 1962, produced by Louis Poulsen - RARE iconic piece in very good vintage condition!

If you want one of the most sought after Poul Henningsen lights - you won't come much closer than this!
Ten brushed aluminum shades carefully arranged on purple lacquered brass 'spacers' around an adjustable bulb socket. Each of the shades consist of three concentric cone shaped parts; the color-lamp, the luminous-lamp and the screening-lamp. All inner parts pointing towards the center of the filament bulb forms the color-lamp, where the underside is powder-coated orange, while its invisible topside is powder-coated blue. As the bulb is lowered the orange part gets more lit up turning the light slightly warmer, whereas when the bulb is raised, and the blue parts is more lit up, the light turns slightly colder.
The middle part of the ten shades forms the luminous-lamp, powder coated white on both sides to obtain optimal reflection, as this part is lit up regardless the position of the bulb. The outer part of the shades forms the screening-lamp, bent to illuminate the underlying shade, which ensures a perfect glare-free light. The underside is bright chrome-plate, whereas the topside is powder-coated white.

A truly timeless piece, gorgeously beautiful, alight as well as idle. A masterpiece in every sense of the word! Designed by Poul Henningsen in 1962 and put into production by Louis Poulsen. (Un)fortunately the lamp was too costly to produce and was discontinued in 1991.
