You wouldn’t think it was necessary, but in the way marketing people can cleverly re-brand a classic in order to sell it back to you, Danish designer Louis Poulsen now presents its PH lamp Limited Edition 2019, available from now until, somewhat ominously yet randomly, the last day of this year. Poul Henningsen’s 1950s reading lamp, with its finely balanced lever action, was affectionately renamed by fans the ‘The water pump’. The PH 3/2 Amber Coloured Glass Floor Lamp sits on a base of brushed brass, so will patinate, and with its hand-blown, three-tier glass shade, emits the kind of ‘dull religious light’ that would have so transfixed John Soane – had he lived long enough to see electric light in.
