The Louis Poulsen PH 3/2 table lamp designed by Poul Henningsen has always been special to me. But now with the limited edition of the PH 3/2 table lamp, it got beyond special. For this photoshoot, I got to borrow one of these lamps, and now that I have seen it in real life I know that this will be my very own Christmas gift.
The lamp can be described in one word – classic. With its Italian mouth-blown amber colored glass and brushed brass frame, I just know that this is a lamp I will grow old with. And as time will pass, the brass frame will acquire a beautiful, unique patina.
But design aside, the lamp creates a magnificent light. When I have turned it on in the evening, the lamp gives the room a calming atmosphere with its softly diffused lightning.
Lastly, a nice little detail I have to add is the through-switch located on the stem of the base (see photo below). No cheap plastic to be found here *smile*.
So if this lamp appeals to you as well, you should be aware that it is a limited edition and will only be available from the 1st of October to 31rd of December 2018. You can shop it here.
Will it be on your Christmas wishlist?
Henningsen’s initials are beautifully engraved beneath the switch.
The lamp looks just as good when it is switched off as you can see below.
