From Scandinaviandesign.com:

Poul Henningsen was born in 1894 in Ordrup, Denmark and became Denmark’s first expert in lighting theory. Even though Poul Henningsen’s is mostly known from his lamps his talent was very diversified. He was trained at the Technical School and the Danish College of Technology, Copenhagen. Ever since 1920 Poul Henningsen worked as an independent architect in Copenhagen where he designed several houses, a factory, a part of Tivoli, and the interiors of two theaters. Beside working as an architect Poul Henningsen wrote articles for several newspapers and periodicals, he scripted a number of revues for Copenhagen theaters, he wrote poems, and was the editor of the magazine “Kritisk Revy” (Critical Revue). From his writings Poul Henningsen was known as a seriously and sharp critical of society and architecture.
