Louis Poulsen Limited Edition PH 2/1 Amber Coloured Glass Table
By Poul Henningsen
PH designed the table lamp in 1927, based on his newly invented three-shade system, which to this day perfectly combines a glare-free downward directed light with a pleasant upward glow, creating an ideal atmosphere.
Characteristic go-through switch Not long after, PH designed the PH 2/1 Table with its characteristic go-through switch, the idea of using coloured glass followed, and even now the three-layered mouth blown amber coloured glass accentuates the light with an almost embracing warmth and personality. The reason as to why Poul Henningsen started to incorporate coloured glass in his designs in the first place was however purely practical. In the late 1920s, Louis Poulsen and PH simply aimed to charm more customers. It worked.
