The Louis Poulsen PH 3/2 Academy creates a dazzle-free light and it comes with a very symmetric distribution of light. This lamp illuminates itself reflecting the light at the matt bottom sides of the glasses. Due to the single shade elements of the PH 3/2 Academy, the brightness is continuously subdued. The lamp consists of three lamp heads each of which has an upper segment being 30 cm in diameter and two smaller ones underneath. Poul Henningsen always wanted to create lamps with a dazzle-free lighting which cast soft shadows. They were also thought to lead the light cone to the right position. The Louis Poulsen PH 3/2 Academy is part of the large series comprising 19 versions three of which are outdoor lights.
