CharacteristicsGlare free light, symmetric light distribution, reflective three-shade system
Poul Henningsen designed the iconic PH three-shade system back in 1925-1926 with the aim of creating a glare-free light, direct light where it was most needed, and create soft shadows, using incandescent bulbs as a light source.
Louis Poulsen's 3½/2½ Floor light is a member of the three-shade family which numbers 18 lights today, including three for outdoor use. PH 3½/2½ Floor consists of an approximately 35 cm top shade with lower shades. These ‘hybrid’ models were introduced due to the desire to hang pendants at lower heights. The system was also used for floor, table and wall lamps. Louis Poulsen's PH 3½/2½ Floor in its current form was introduced in 2002.
The fixture is designed based on the principle of a reflective three-shade system, which directs the majority of the light downwards. The shades are made of mouth-blown opal three-layer glass, which is glossy on top and sandblasted matt on the underside, giving a soft and diffuse light distribution.
