PH Lounge Chair, chrome, leather extreme indianred

US$4,315.58per item

About

Take a deep breath and enjoy the moment! The PH Lounge Chair is a place to rest, to think and to relax. The frame of the PH Lounge Chair consists visually only of one long steel tube, bent in generous, dynamic lines for ultimate comfort. Where the steel tubes meets the floor, the two concave circles make a decorative effect and is very distinctive from any other steel tube furniture. The design from 1932 meets Poul Henningsen’s vision that there should be comfortable furniture shapes that were simpler to manufacture in steel than in wood. The generously upholstered seat and ergonomic line of the lounge chair guarantees comfort and superb back support. The PH Lounge Chair comes with chromed steel tubes and with an upholstery in aniline leather and five colours for all settings: mocca, walnut, black, Indian red and un-dyed. Besides, it can be upholstered in the warm and comfortable Hallingdal fabric in two colours: black and light grey.

Customization Options

Available in walnut, indian-red, mocca, black and un-dyed leather and black or grey fabric.

About the Designer

Poul Henningsen

The name Poul Henningsen is synonymous with the best and most innovative modern Scandinavian lamps and other lighting. The Danish designer created a signature vocabulary of fixtures with tiered and layered shades in sculptural arrangements that are at once naturalistic and geometric. Henningsen grew up in a town on the outskirts of Copenhagen and studied architecture at the Technical University of Denmark. He would become a noted art critic, journalist and screenwriter, but his first love was lighting design. Henningsen’s childhood home was illuminated by oil lamps. When his family switched to electrified lighting, he was alarmed and repelled by the harsh glare cast by an incandescent bulb, and in his late teens he began conducting quasi-scientific experiments to measure which materials and methods best diffused or reflected light to give it a warm brightness. His work came to the attention of the lighting-fixtures firm Louis Poulsen, which sponsored the development of a prototype lamp. The design won a gold medal at the 1925 Paris Expositions Internationales des Arts Decóratifs et Industriels Modernes — from which the term Art Deco derives. The lamp, whose three-part shade is said to be inspired by the arrangement of a dinner plate atop a soup bowl atop a teacup, became the basis for Henningsen’s most successful design, the PH 4/3 desk lamp.All told, Henningsen would design some 100 lighting fixtures in his career. Some of his most notable creations are hanging lamps, which include the Septima (1929), a pendant composed of seven graduated frosted-glass layers; the Spiral (1942), made of a single ribbon of enameled aluminum; and the Artichoke lamp (1958), whose 70 glass or metal fins in a staggered and graduated arrangement on a central steel frame resemble those of its namesake. The last is likely Henningsen’s masterwork and an icon of mid-20th-century design. Like all Henningsen lighting designs, it is striking, sculptural and — thanks to his insistence on the primacy of the quality of the light cast — superbly functional.Find a collection of authentic Poul Henningsen table lamps, floor lamps and other lighting on 1stDibs.
