Poul Henningsen

Poul Henningsen (1894-1967) is regarded as a "master of lamp making." Born in Ordrup and trained as an architect at the Danish College of Technology in Copenhagen, he often explained: "from the age of eighteen, when I began to experiment with light, I have been searching for harmony in lighting." He worked in Copenhagen as an free-lancer architect and as he consistently found the traditional lighting designs to be insufficient for his buildings he began designing his own solutions. Distressed by "how dismal people's homes are," and recognizing that "the electric light gave the possibility of wallowing in light," he took an almost missionary stance towards the advancement of modern lighting.
