Louis Poulsen Limited Edition PH 2/2 Question Mark
In the limited edition of Poul Henningsen’s PH 2/2 Question Mark in brass with fine hairlines, the design and materiality of Henningsen’s elegant classic are paired with mouth-blown opal glass shades that create a beautiful ambience in any space.PH designed the original table lamp in 1931, based on his three-shade system from 1926, which perfectly combines a glare-free downward directed light with a pleasant upward glow, creating an ideal ambience. The lamp was given the name ‘Question Mark’ due to the curvature of the lamp stem.
The PH 2/2 Question Mark was produced until the mid-1950s in brass and with different colouredglass shades, including amber, and with various shade holders. The direction of the light could be adjusted by turning the handle on the middle of the stem. It was fitted with a go-through switch.The PH light model numbers refer to the shade size. Each top shade had a corresponding set of middle and lower shades. In the ‘pure’ models, such as the 2/2, the top shade measures about 20 cm, with corresponding lower shades.The PH 3/2 Pendant consists of an approximately 30-centimetre top shade, but uses lower shades from the 2/2 mode

Poul Henningsen was born in Copenhagen by the famous Danish actress Agnes Henningsen. He never graduated as an architect, but studied at The Technical School at Frederiksberg, Denmark from 1911-14, and then at Technical College in Copenhagen from 1914-17. He started practicing traditional functionalistic architecture, but over the years his professional interests changed to focus mainly on lighting which is what he is most famous for. He also expanded his field of occupation into areas of writing, becoming a journalist and an author. For a short period at the beginning of WWII, he was the head architect of the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen. But like many other creative people, he was forced to flee Denmark during the German occupation but soon became a vital part of the Danish colony of artists living in Sweden.
