Good light for a Good life - 120 years of Poul Henningsen
Wednesday April 30th 2014 at 7:30pm
The art of taming the light...
In the 1920s Poul Henningsen undertook the challenge of inventing absolutely glare-free light. The objective was to create good light for a good life and get the best possible light from an electrical light bulb and still creating a warm ambiance – closer to the light temperature given by lit candles or petrol lamps.
Poul Henningsen created the so-called 3-shade system were the shades were used to avoid glare but at the same time contributed to optimise the amount of functional light in a room and according to PH this could be achieved by working with different type of materials.
PH would have turned 120 this year and ikonhouse is celebrating him with an evening dedicated to his work and designs.
Come and hear the fascinating stories told by Ulla Riemer about Poul Henningsen's lighting principles, his life, work and designs.
