– In 1949, Poul Henningsen designed the “Tivoli” lamps for the Tivoli park.
– The lamp (ref# 3604411) was manufactured by Louis Poulsen.

Look at the video on the picture, you will see that the lamp is actually turning.

– Louis Henningsen had a son: Simon Hennigsen. – In 1962, Simon Hennigsen designed a lamp for the restaurant, Divan 2, situated inside the Tivoli park. – The lamp is manufactured by Lyfa. – The lamp is called “Tivoli” or “Divan 2”      



Today, Divan 2 is called “Nimb terrasse”.
