Poul Henningsen was once quoted as saying "Future comes by itself, progress does not." He himself
lived by these words, always pushing the envelope in both his visually creative endeavors and in the
philosophy behind his writing. Poul was born in 1894 to likewise liberally minded parents; author Agnes
Henningsen and satirist Carl Ewaldet. Between 1911 and 1917 Henningsen received training to become
an architect, but he never graduated and tried himself as an inventor and painter. To shop reproductions inspired with similar design to the original Artichoke Lamp, view the colors below.
