Born in Copenhagen, Poul Henningsen was an influential character not just as a designer, but as a critic, writer and politician. His ideas were focused on functionality and it was in one of the cold and dark nights of winter that he came up with his signature PH lamp for Louis Poulsen. His designs are characterised by their detailed functionality embedded in culture and societal needs, lending them a timeless aspect.
