The Artichoke, a bit tarnished.
In 1958 Poul Henningsen designed the Artichoke for the Copenhagen Langelinie Pavilion. And it still hangs there.
The lamp is still in production by Louis Poulsen and has a firm place in many design museums, such as the MoMa.
It consists of 72 sheets, which sit in rows of 6 on 12 steel arches. Thanks to the perfect arrangement of the leaves, the light bulb cannot be seen from any position, giving you glare-free light.
Our Artichoke is a rather early version, the copper at the lower end of the leaves has tarnished.
