Louis Poulsen PH Septima Glass Pendant E27
In autumn 2020, Louis Poulsen will be bringing back the PH Septima, a distinctive seven-shade glass lamp, originally designed by Poul Henningsen in the period 1927-31. With its poetic shape and seven shades, all ornamented with alternating clear and frosted sections, the PH Septima diffuses a pleasantly delicate light that sets the stage in any interior.
The PH Septima balances heritage and modernity in an exceptional design that draws inspiration from the iconic three-shade system of the PH 5/5. With the Septima, Poul Henningsen added four additional sections to the basic three-shade system – to make seven shades in total.
The seven shades of the glass crown are produced in delicate, but very strong, Italian borosilicate glass and decorated with alternating clear and frosted sections that add a contemporary aesthetic edge, while creating a warm and harmonious ambience

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.
