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 Bollard is a member of the three-shade family and is one of 19 versions available today.
The PH light model numbers refer to the shade size. Each top shade had a corresponding set of middle and lower shades. In the pure models, such as the 2/2, the top shade has a size of about 20 cm, with corresponding lower shades. PH 3/2½ Bollard 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. PH 3/2½ Bollard was introduced in 2005.
