Poul Henningsen

Poul Henningsen was born in Copenhagen by the famous Danish actress Agnes Henningsen. He never graduated as an architect, but studied at The Technical School at Frederiksberg, Denmark from 1911-14, and then at Technical College in Copenhagen from 1914-17. He started practicing traditional functionalistic architecture, but over the years his professional interests changed to focus mainly on lighting which is what he is most famous for. He also expanded his field of occupation into areas of writing, becoming a journalist and an author. For a short period at the beginning of WWII, he was the head architect of the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen. But like many other creative people, he was forced to flee Denmark during the German occupation but soon became a vital part of the Danish colony of artists living in Sweden. His lifelong collaboration with Louis Poulsen began in 1925 and lasted until his death. To this day, Louis Poulsen still benefits from his genius. Poul Henningsen was also the first editor of the company magazine “NYT”. The CEO of Louis Poulsen at the time, Sophus Kaastrup-Olsen, gave the magazine to PH as a gift because he had been terminated from the Danish newspaper he worked for (his opinions were too radical). Poul Henningsen's pioneering work concerning the relations between light structures, shadows, glare, and color reproduction—compared to man’s need for light remains the fondation of the lighting theories still practiced by Louis Poulsen.

Poul Henningsen 은 코펜하겐에서 유명한 덴마크 배우인 Agnes Henningsen의 아들로 태어났습니다. 그는 건축학교를 졸업하지는 않았지만 1911-14년 덴마크 Frederiksberg의 기술학교에서 공부했고, 1914-17년 코펜하겐의 기술대학에서 공부 했습니다. 그는 전통적인 기능주의 건축을 연습하기 시작했지만, 수년에 걸쳐 그의 직업적인 관심은 주로 유명한 조명에 집중하는 것으로 바뀌었습니다. 그는 또한 집필 분야로도 진출해 언론인과 작가로도 활동했습니다. 2차 세계대전이 시작될 때 잠시 그는 코펜하겐에 있는 티볼리 가든의 수석 건축가였습니다. 많은 예술가들과 마찬가지로 독일 지배 기간 동안 덴마크에서 강제 탈출 하도록 되었으나, 스웨덴에 살고 있는 예술가들의 덴마크 식민지의 필수적인 부분이 되었습니다. 1925년에 시작된 루이스 폴센과의 협력은 그의 평생 동안 계속 되었습니다. 오늘 날까지 루이스폴센은 여전히 그의 천재적인 재능으로부터 이익을 얻고 있습니다. Poul Henningsen NYT 라는 회사 매거진의 최초 편집자 이기도 했습니다. 당시 루이스폴센의 CEO  Sophus Kaastrup-OlsenPH에게 매거진을 선물로 주었는데, 그가 일했던 덴마크 신문사에서 그의 의견이 너무 급진적이라는 이유로 해고 당했기 때문입니다. 빛의 구조, 그림자, 눈부심, 그리고 색상 재생산에 대한 Poul Henningsen의 개척적인 업적은 Louis Poulsen에 의해 여전히 조명 이론의 초석으로 남아 있습니다
