Rare 'Septima' Ceiling Lamp with Type 5 Shades

Poul Henningsen
1930s
Ref. 190459

Acid etched glass shades, nickel-plated brass.

Beyond the original PH Lamps, Poul Henningsen worked on the Septima between 1927 and 1931. Here again, he cloaked the bulb in several layers that simultaneously diffuse and reflect light to create a warm and harmonious ambiance. The commercial and cultural potential of the Septima was never fully realized, and very few examples were produced. On the eve of World War II, Louis Poulsen ceased production due to material shortages.
Produced by Louis Poulsen.
