The iconic and innovative Artichoke Lamp by Poul Henningsen uses layers of laser cut steel to create an organically shaped hidden light source.
If you’re not sure who Poul Henningsen is by name, we’re sure you will know him through his famous range of naturally inspired pendant lights. Born in 1894 in Denmark, Henningsen studied as an architect from 1911 to 1917 but never graduated. His focus changed from perusing a career in architecture to one in design and painting. It was this decision that helped him in to become the revered designer and innovator his legacy is known for. Henningsen became fixated by the idea of recreating the warming and relaxing glow of petroleum lamps which he remembered fondly from his childhood. He considered modern light bulbs to be way too bright, to him they were purely functional, not emotional.
Created from laser cut brushed aluminium leaves that look both natural and entirely intentional, perfectly reflect its hidden light source from all angles. The Artichoke Lamp’s specially chosen range of colours (copper, white, silver and gold) give a variety of tones to the escaping light which not only turns heads, but also completes Henningsen’s vision of a perfectly lit room.
