PH Furniture breathes life into forgotten design treasures by iconic lampmaker

There is no doubt that Poul Henningsen has enriched the Scandinavian design history with his groundbreaking lighting-designs. But few are aware that his creativity and sense of functionalism also included a wide range of furniture designs, that have never before been put into production.

Poul Henningsen believed that well-designed, functional and aesthetically pleasing environments were the right of every individual: this was the enduring philosophy behind all his work. Whether designing a two bedroom city apartment or writing for publications, making a good quality of life accessible for all was a recurrent theme. Inherent in Poul Henningsen was a desire not just to improve the day to day quality of life of the socially elite and the bourgeoisie, but also to make available ‘good design’ to working people.

With the same thorough approach which Poul Henningsen used to develop the lamps, he has also developed timeless and original design solutions for a wide range of furniture for decades. Now the new PH furniture, which initially consists of 17 different variants of chairs, tables, chests of drawers and mirrors, is being launched.
