The fixture provides 100% glare-free light. The 72 precisely positioned leaves form 12 unique rows of six leaves each. They illuminate the fixture, as well as emit diffused light with a unique pattern. Reflection from the light source is diffused in the sandblasted lower surfaces, and this light is reflected decoratively in the top surfaces, giving the fixture a unique glow. The surface treatment on the glass leaves eliminates direct glare. For the energy saving LED variant the quality of light and atmosphere surrounding the product is kept at the highest level.

Louis Poulsen PH Artichoke Glass Pendant Lamp Designed by:
- Poul Henningsen
Denmark, 1894 - 1967
"All political art is bad – all good art is political." - Poul Henningsen
Poul Henningsen was a Danish author, architect and critic, was one of the leading figures of the cultural life of Denmark between the World Wars. In Denmark, he is often referred to as PH. Poul Henningsen was the illegitimate son of author Agnes Henningsen and satirist Carl Ewald. He spent a happy childhood in a tolerant and modern home in Ordrup which was often visited by the leading literates. Between 1911 and 1917 he was educated as an architect, but he never graduated and tried himself as an inventor and painter.
His most valuable contribution to design was in the field of lighting. He designed the PH-lamp in 1925, which, like his later designs, used carefully analyzed reflecting and baffling of the light rays from the bulb to achieve glare-free and uniform illumination. His light fixtures were manufactured by Louis Poulsen. His best-known models are the PH Artichoke and PH5. The lamps created the economic foundation of his later work.
Other notable designs include the PH Grand Piano which is included in several notable 20th-century design collections, including that of the Metropolitan Museum in New York City. He also designed Glassalen for Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen.
