Poul Henningsen designed the three-shade system during 1925/1926. The first lights using the system were designed for an exhibition in Paris. His work with Louis Poulsen continued until his death in 1967. Throughout his life, PH sought to create glare-free lighting; aiming to direct light where it was most needed, and creating soft shadows while using incandescent bulbs as a light source. PH 3/2½ Wall is a member of the three-shade family and is one of 19 versions available today. Approximately one thousand different models have been produced over the years and consisted of table, floor and wall lamps, as well as a number of different chandeliers, which were very popular in the 30s for lighting private homes with high ceilings.
PH 3/2½ Wall consists of an approximately 30 cm top shade, but uses lower shades from the 2½ model. These hybrid models were introduced due to the desire to hang pendants at lower heights. The system was also used for wall, floor and table lamps. PH 3/2½ Wall was introduced in 2005.
