PH PH 3.5/2.5 provides soft diffused illumination thanks to its ingenious glass diffuser design. Poul Henningsen's PH 3.5/2.5 Floor Lamp is based on the principle of a reflecting multi-shade system, creating a harmonious and glare free light. Each glass shade evenly decreases the amount of light. The attention to detail that went into the design of this lamp is truly exceptional. This floor lamp is a keeper, sure to be enjoyed for generations to come.

This is what Poul Henningsen said about his new fixture in 1926: "The real innovation in the PH-fixture is that it produces lighting which is both glare free and economical. It is easy enough to create glare-free light (indirect and strongly shaded light) if a portion of the light is allowed to be wasted, and it is equally easy to make fixtures which are highly efficient if you ignore the fact that they severely irritate the eye (strong specular reflection, etc.) but it is an art to make light both economical and glare free."
