The Artichoke is one of Poul Henningsen’s masterpiece designs dating back to 1958. The unique lamp was developed for a restaurant in Copenhagen called Langelinie Pavilion where visitors can view this artistic design to this day.

The Artichoke is made from 72 “leaves” placed on 12 steel arches. They illuminate the beautiful fixture as well as emit diffused light in a unique pattern making the lamp a piece of art.

Poul Henningsen grew up with petroleum lamps and tried to recreate their soft sheen in his lighting creations, rejecting the harsh light of electric bulbs. In his own words: “Future comes by itself, progress does not.” reflecting his constant pursuit for innovation apparent in all of his designs.

Cuberious produces the artistic lamp with great precision to the details of the design. The lamp is made of aluminum. It is available in four different sizes and available in aluminium or with a copper coloured, white powder-coated or black powder coated finish. Bulb not included.

Poul Henningsen (1894–1967)

Designer, author, architect and critic, Poul Henningsen was born into an intellectual and upper class family in Denmark, 1894. Famed for his innovative lighting design, Henningsen was also one of the leading cultural figures in Denmark between both World Wars.

Inspired by nature and form, Henningsen’s design style was both unique and provocative. He didn’t believe in the mundane and obvious, once stating, ”All political art is bad – all good art is political.”
Celebrated worldwide, Poul Henningsen’s work remains within several notable 20th-century design collections, including that of the Metropolitan Museum in New York City.

Henningsen was also given the prestigious honour of designing a piece for Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen.
