Designed by Poul Henningsen for Louis Poulson, the PH series claimed instant success and was sold and used all over the world, including the renowned Bauhaus Dessau building. Henningsen saw electrical light as a vehicle to 'enlighten' the masses by im- proving their home and work environments, hence the multiple concentric shades designed to emit only reflected light by obscuring the light source, and thus eliminating visual glare.
