No expense spared when it comes to lighting the City Halls – only the finest Danish design at several thousand each.
Iconic 1958 design by Poul Henningsen.
The consummate modernist chandelier, [Poul Henningsen](https://www.dwr.com/designers.cfm?designer_ID=4322)’s Artichoke Lamp – Large (1958) measures nearly three feet in width and is composed of layers of overlapping “leaves”, which produce crisp, glare-free light from 360 degrees. Each leaf is laser-cut for precision and is configured by hand. The Artichoke is aptly suited to a dining room, entryway or reception desk. UL- listed. Professional installation of large lamp recommended. Manufactured in Denmark by Louis Poulsen
