Louis Poulsen

PH 3/2 Wall


The Louis Poulsen PH 3/2 Wall is part of a three-shade family of lights, including 30 models today. Designed by Poul Henningsen, this system includes table, floor, and wall lamps, as well as chandeliers, popular in the 1930s for high-ceiling homes. Originally, shades were metal with painted undersides to provide diffuse, warm, or cool light, later incorporating glass for broader illumination.

Henningsen's scientific approach used the logarithmic spiral to ensure even light distribution and reduce glare. Each shade proportionately reduces light due to their spacing from the source. Model numbers reflect the shade sizes, with 'pure' models like the 2/2 featuring a 7.9 inch top shade. The PH 3/2 Wall has an 11.8 inch top shade and smaller lower shades from the 2/2 model, introduced for lower pendant hanging. This system is also applied to wall, floor, and table lamps.
