The PH Septima is regarded as one of Poul Henningsen’s most refined pendants. When exhibited for the first time as a prototype at the Danish Museum of Decorative Art (now Designmuseum Danmark) in 1928, the poetic piece was publically applauded.
Based on the PH three-shade system, the glass crown has four extra shades inserted between the three basic shades – all seven produced in very delicate, but also strong, Italian borosilicate glass. The seven-shade glass crown emits a glare-free, downward directed light, while radiating a pleasantly delicate glow. From shade to shade, frosted glass fields alternately cover the clear ones, thus diffusing the light even more softly.
