A really cool poster featuring the infamous lamp PH5 by the legendary Danish architect Poul Henningsen (1894-1967).

The industrial design of the lamp was used on this exhibition poster. The exhibition was held by The Danish Design Council in 1983 and was called "Design: First is the problem".

One of the main ideas behind the lamp is to avoid people getting blinded from the light bulb and to create a various light reflections. These methods was based on a system where the PH5 Lamp have many screens. The screen system was developed based on mathematical calculations of how light is reflected.

On this "sketch" poster you can see the layers within the PH5 Lamp with the round ball inside representing the light bulb. The black lines on sketch shows the directions of the light and how the light is reflected inside and outside the lamp.

Please note: the main color of the poster is silver (with a little black/white) which perhaps looks like gray on your screen. The poster is siver-colored and has a nice light glare to it.
