Louis Poulsen PH Gold Artichoke suspension lamp for the filthy rich

Gold_poulsen

We though the glass version was pricey, but that seems like a bargain compared to the Louis Poulsen PH Gold Artichoke suspension lamp.

PH of course stands for Poul Henningsen, the designer of the original lamp 50 years back for the Langeliniepavillonen restaurant on the Copenhagen waterfront – those leaves becoming an icon of 20th century design.

This ultra-expensive version is a limited edition of just 50, all numbered, 840mm in diameter and with leaves gilded in 24-carat gold over the original copper surface, the finished with a clear varnish. How expensive? Well, only Premier League footballers and Lotto winners need apply – it's £100,000.
