The fixture provides 100% glare-free light. The 72 precisely positioned leaves form 12 unique rows of six leaves each. They illuminate the fixture, as well as emit diffused light with a unique pattern. Reflection from the light source is diffused in the sandblasted lower surfaces, and this light is reflected decoratively in the top surfaces, giving the fixture a unique glow. The surface treatment on the glass leaves eliminates direct glare. For the energy saving LED variant the quality of light and atmosphere surrounding the product is kept at the highest level.

Poul Henningsen was born in Copenhagen by the famous Danish writer 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.
