The PH Lounge Table designed in 1932 by Poul Henningsen (PH) is the perfect addition to any lounge space where a table is required to gather around or for display.

Poul Henningsen: Re-Shaping the Future

Poul Henningsen’s furniture and piano designs sit distinctly apart from the creations of his contemporaries. Poul Henningsen (PH) was prolific in his output, creating numerous ideas for furniture, lighting and public spaces.

The PH Mirror – Visionary Design

The earliest ‘mirrors’ known to be used were actually pools of water, though of course they were not the most reliable source of reflection. Early engineering overcame the problem of relying on a puddle or lake to look at oneself, as the very first mirrors constructed of glass with a metal backing can be traced back to the ancient Egyptians, Romans and Greeks, all of whom fashioned their own versions of ‘looking glasses’. While it’s fundamental construction has not changed since ancient times, the modern mirror has come to be regarded as one of life’s essentials and for this reason...
