The one and only Artichoke pendant light by Poul Henningsen for Louis Poulsen, 1958s. Designed for the Langelinie Pavillonen restaurant in the heart of Copenhagen.
The brushed stainless steel sheets form unique rows of leaves and were completely attached by hand.
They illuminate the fixture and emit a diffuse light in a unique pattern.
This is an early edition in exceptionally beautiful vintage condition.
Spicy anecdote: the PH Artichoke unfortunately also knew how to allure to thieves. Some years back, in 2009, a group of burglars took five of the original fixtures during a break-in in the Langelinie Pavillonen restaurant. Fortunately, the police were able to trace the stolen objects and return them to their owner.
Height 85 cm, width 48 cm, depth 48 cm.
