Product description

One of the world's biggest lighting design icons is being released in a new polished steel version. This adds a fourth member to the renowned light fixture family, which today comprises copper, white painted metal and brushed steel models.

The new version looks elegant in new and old architectural settings alike and produces a fascinating effect as the surroundings are reflected in the changing angles of the leaves. The light is ideal for large and small rooms, private homes, companies and public buildings. The PH ARTICHOKE is sculptural and decorative lighting which has proven its enduring design and function over more than 50 years.

The PH ARTICHOKE story began in 1958, when architect Poul Henningsen precisely arranged the 72 leaves to create a light for Langelinie Pavillonen in Copenhagen. Since that time, the iconic fixture has been enchanting people around the world with its charismatic presence and atmospheric light.

The PH ARTICHOKE has been regularly updated to keep up with technological developments. We have also regularly considered alternative materials. However, very few materials meet our strict requirements and provide the lighting experience we expect of the PH ARTICHOKE. The new polished steel version has therefore been thoroughly tested before being finally approved in line with Louis Poulsen's lighting philosophy.

The new PH ARTICHOKE is being released in the same LED version as the three largest versions of the fixture were launched in last year. It thereby fulfils the latest energy requirements, while the renowned lighting comfort has actually been improved. The LED version is available with a colour temperature of 2700K, very similar to incandescent light, and a 3000K version with a warm white tone.
