Poul Henningsen, a Danish is the architect and brains behind this lighting series carrying the initials of his name “PH”. These lamps are based on the theory that the observer is not supposed to be subjected to direct glare from the source of electric light. You can check varipus lamp systems at koglenlampe.dk. These bulbs as such are layered with various shades to conceal bulb and also to spread the light hence creating a homogeneously diffused and softer light.
