PH 3/2 Academy pendant by Poul Henningsen for Louis Poulsen.

Rooted in a painstaking analysis of the reflective qualities of light, Poul Henningsen's lights are recognised as classics of Danish design which are notable for their innovative glare-free form and uniform illumination.

The 3/2 Academy pendant has a chrome-plated fixture with three lights, each of which features Henningsen's unique three-shade system. This shading system is designed to permit 12% of the light generated to contribute to the overall lighting of a room, with the majority of illumination focused outwards and downwards to cast an atmospheric yet effective glow.

Shades are mouth-blown, three-layer white opal glass which has a gloss finish on the upper side and is sandblasted matt on the inside to give a softly diffuse distribution of light. Frame and suspension rod are extruded brass with a high lustre chrome plating.

Supplied with ceiling cone and 4m black textile cable. Maximum weight: 6kg.

Light source: 3 x 40W E14 (not included). IP 20 rating.
