Poul Henningsen (PH), in keeping with Scandinavian design traditions and the Bauhaus influences of the 1930s he would adopt, believed in uncomplicated environments. PH realised that for a home to be truly functional, there must be space for storage. Initially inspired by a commission to create furniture for the apartment of a newly married couple in Copenhagen in 1919 and driven by a wider desire to improve the quality of daily life for everyone who owned his designs, PH devoted much thought to addressing the need for tidiness in his furniture creations.
Designed in 1920 by Poul Henningsen (PH), the PH Grand Dressing Table is the larger relative of the PH Dressing Table, sharing all of the beautiful design features of its smaller counterpart – with the added advantage of extra storage space.
The Poul Henningsen (PH) designed PH Grand Chest and it’s smaller counterpart, the PH Small Drawer Chest were designed in the 20th Century, but it transpires that they provide perfect solutions for a very 21st Century problem: that of storage.
