Poul Henningsen (1894–1967) trained as an architect in Copenhagen but specialized in lighting design. Employed by Louis Poulsen in 1924 he developed a three shade lamp known simply as the PH lamp. This hanging lamp, still in production today was joined by table, floor and wall lamps, with the PH lamp becoming a household name and to this day remaining one of the finest incandescent lamps. At his death in 1967 Poul had designed more than 100 lamps including the classic PH5.
