Celebration of Poul Henningsen’s 125th anniversary
From February 1 – January 5 2019
Danish designer Poul Henningsen’s 125th anniversary is celebrated with this exhibition in Woodhouse showing Henningsen’s historic lamps and his connection with Tivoli.
The exhibition is included in the price of admission to Tivoli.
Poul Henningsen, often known in Denmark by his initials, PH, was Tivoli’s head architect for many years, and left his distinctive mark on the Gardens. This story is told along with that of the lamp that became a national treasure – in an exhibition that became a partnership between Tivoli and Louis Poulsen.
PH 4/3, PH 5 and PH Artichoke are iconic designs that will be instantly recognisable to many, and are found in many Danish homes and public institutions. The exhibition is an immersive experience in the Woodhouse café, and a good children’s activity has also been incorporated.
