I took this pic inside La Colombe's new shop on Lafayette Street. A fabulous design from 1958, Henningsen designed this for Louis Poulsen and packed it with lighting wisdom: "The shade comprises layers of varying sizes and shapes that direct light both horizontally and vertically. To lend further warmth to the quality of light, Henningsen ingeniously applied primary red to the interior of the inside cone and blue to the smallest reflector to absorb both light spectrums."
