Louis Poulsen PH Artichoke 480 Pendant Light Black
Manufacturer: Louis Poulsen
Designer: Poul Henningsen
The pendant illuminates any space with a 100% glare-free light due to the 72 leaves, which form 12 precisely positioned rows that hold six leaves each. The fixture ensures the light is distributed inwards as well as outwards, thereby emitting a beautiful and comfortable light.
In 1958, Poul Henningsen designed the PH Artichoke for the Langelinie Pavilion, a modernist Copenhagen restaurant, in which the PH Artichoke continues to enchant guests to this day, where the pendant is regarded as an international design icon. The distinctive shape and design of the pendant ensures a completely glare free light no matter from which angle it is viewed. This is due to the 72 carefully placed leaves that have also inspired the name of the pendant.
Today, the PH Artichoke is still partly assembled by hand to ensure high quality. And yes it is true that it takes up a lot of space. However, the quality of light and the sheer elegance is truly unparalleled.
The famous luminaire is still available in its original cobber finish. Over time, versions in brushed and polished steel, brass and white metal have been added, and these continue to emphasise the versatility and timeless silhouette of the pendant.
The PH Artichoke Black is introduced in 2020. With a perfect matt black finish, this version consolidates a bold look for those wanting an edgier interior without compromising on either design or quality of light.
