Poul Henningsen

This is my favourite lamp. It looks cool in the daytime but it is really stunning after dark. Normally we have a white one hanging in this spot but for this picture I specially put up the our new purple one.

It is designed in 1958 by the Danish designer Poul Henningsen and it's name is PH5. Henningsen disliked the blinding glare of the light bulb so he wanted to develop a lamp that gave the same glare as an old fashioned petroleum lamp. That resulted in the PH-range of lamp designs. This PH5 is the most successful design (and my favourite).

The PH5 lamps have always been produced by Louis Poulsen. They are still producing it but not in this beautiful purple.

we are back to normal life again after two weeks holidays .

YOkoo is so cool and I just love her work

-want to know how to make a pom pom

have a good week
