The PH Bow Piano: Making Waves

The Poul Henningsen (PH) designed PH Bow Piano is a radical departure from the expectation of how a wooden cased piano should be presented. It was Poul Henningsen’s innate belief that when designing a piece of furniture form should always follow function and that the practical performance of his creation was of paramount importance. PH…

PH Dining Table: Fine Dining

Many of Poul Henningsen’s furniture designs are based on the concept of curved tubular steel: such iconic Poul Henningsen pieces include the PH Snake Chair and PH Snake Stool, the PH Desk, the PH Lounge Chair, the PH Chair and the PH Pope Chair. Complementary to these is the PH Dining Table, which also features…

The PH Circle Table: For the Circle of Life

What is the significance of a table? And why does the design detail of such a relatively simple piece of furniture really matter? Poul Henningsen (PH) was a designer and architect who believed that the small details of even the most ‘every day’ furniture really mattered. Although it’s presence may be quiet and it’s appearance…

PH Board Tables: Every Idea, Illuminated

Egalitarian beliefs were fundamental to Poul Henningsen (PH) and these ideas underpinned every design that he created. This philosophy can be seen most clearly in PH’s ‘Board Tables’, created to provide the ultimate versatile workspace for the production and execution of ideas.    Poul Henningsen’s Board Tables produced by PH Furniture feature the same legs…

The PH Chair: Seriously Good Seating

The Poul Henningsen (PH) designed PH Chair is an example of Scandinavian design at it’s very best.

The Fine Art of Storage

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.   The PH Grand Chest and PH Small Drawer Chests are designed to be viewed…

PH Axe Table: Design Beyond the Cutting Edge

Poul Henningsen (PH) used the concept of the humble axe handle to create a table that is strong, beautiful and durable. While Denmark has a history of axe design (the Dane Axe was used throughout Europe as a knightly weapon from the 10th to the 16th centuries), PH’s inspiration for the PH Axe Table came…

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. Though the range of items PH designed is diverse, they all have one thing in common: PH’s desire to re-shape the future of…

The PH Pope Chair – The Religion of Good Seating

As with many of Poul Henningsen’s furniture and lighting designs, the PH Pope Chair features a shape that is inspired by nature. The legs of Poul Henningsen’s PH Pope Chair resemble the roots of a tree, anchoring it firmly the ground, giving a sense of strength that goes beyond the purely physical. The PH Pope…
