From wine imports to electrical articles

Louis Poulsen is a Danish company that manufactures and sells designer lamps by various well-known designers. The company was founded in Copenhagen n 1874 by Ludvig R. Poulsen. Here, the company was first a wine import company. In 1892, Ludvig R. Poulsen established a business of selling tools and electrical articles, which was later taken over by his nephew, Louis Poulsen. From this comes the now familiar name, Louis Poulsen.

PH lamp and success

In 1924 Louis Poulsen began a strong collaboration with architect and designer, Poul Henningsen. This collaboration is due to the intention of the two parties to have success in Exposition internationale des Arts décoratifs et industriels modernes in Paris in 1925. It is safe to say that they achieved success. In fact, their collaboration was so successful that with the PH lamp they won a gold medal at the exhibition. Since then, the PH lamp has been known worldwide.


Posters in beautiful colours

The fact that the PH lamp is very well known, and especially in Denmark, is clear here on the page. At Permild & Rosengreen you will find several beautiful posters with the motif of the classic lamp. Here, you have the opportunity to choose from posters where the lamp is on a mild, beige background or on a saturated yellow background. In addition, the colour of the lamp itself differs from poster to poster. See, for example, the poster “Poulsen PH Lamp, Germany / P 4”, where there is a motif of the most beautiful, classic red PH ceiling lamp on a beige, retro background.
