Collection: Henningsen, Poul

Poul Henningsen was born in Copenhagen and his mother was the famous Danish writer Agnes Henningsen. Although he never graduated as an Architect, Poul Henningsen studied at The Technical School at Frederiksberg, Denmark from 1911-14, and then at Technical College in Copenhagen from 1914-17. Poul Henningsen began his career practicing traditional functionalistic Architecture, but over the years his professional interests moved to focus mainly on lighting, which is what he is now most famous for.
