Description Stunning lamp, model Artichoke designed, by Poul Henningsen in 1958 and manufactured by Louis Poulsen (Denmark) in the early 1960s.

The lamp has a chrome plated metal inner diffuser and stainless steel cables. The eye-catching feature is, of course, the copper plated metal leaves. They give this lamp the iconic shape that earned it’s fame! In addition, they also allow a beautiful warm yet bright light to spread around the room when lit. Henningsen was constantly experimenting with the possibilities of shapes, materials and their effect on lighting. The artichoke is a perfect example of the endless versatility of light! It emits not only the room, but also itself beautifully and in a way that always feels new and refreshing.

The lamp has a diameter of 72 cm, making it a very impressive piece that will make an absolute eye-catcher in any decor!

It remains in good original condition, with minor wear consistent with age and use, preserving a nice patina.
