I´m so excited every time Louis Poulsen launches new products. And with Louis Poulsen´s 60th anniversary of Poul Henningsen icons, they are launching the legendary PH Artichoke pendant in brushed brass – oh, my!
The PH Artichoke actually dates back to 1958 when it was made for Langelinie Pavillonen, a restaurant in Copenhagen, where you will actually still find it hanging. Since then the lamp has become a classic and an icon you will find in both homes and public spaces all over the world.
Since the beginning, the lamp has been manufactured in metallic editions, but this is actually the first time the lamp is widely available in brushed brass. Previously you would only get this finish ordered custom-made.
And what a finish it is. The brushed brass gives the perfect warm atmosphere in the room, and as with all the PH Artichoke lamps, you get a soft, glare-free illumination thanks to the 72 leaves that hide the light source.
The PH Artichoke in brushed brass is already on the market ( launched in September 2018 ) and will be available in all sizes. But be aware that the special edition with the engraved PH signature and a unique number will only be available exclusively through 2018. From 2019, the PH Artichoke will be delivered without the anniversary engraving. So if you didn´t have enough on your Christmas wishlist already. Here is another one *smile.
What do you think of this new finish?
Here you see the fabulous PH Artichoke in brushed brass in my kitchen. Unfortunately only for a loan for this photoshoot.
