The Louis Poulsen PH 2/1 Table Lamp has three reflecting shades and thus the main part of the light is directed downwards. The shades consist of hand-blown opalised three-layered glass. They are glossy from the outside while the inner side is matt sand-blasted. This provides for a soft and diffuse distribution of light. The reflections of the PH 2/1 Table Lamp are lead from the shades over a logarithmic spiral.
The standard version has lamp base and body in high-gloss chromed, on request there is also offered a light in metallized black. Apart from this version Louis Poulsen offers several other PH lamps differing in size, surface or lamp type.
