It is a classical masterpiece where it still hangs at Langelinie Pavillonen restaurant in Copenhagen to this day.

Poul Henningsen (9 September 1894 – 31 January 1967) was a Danish author, critic, architect, and designer, who was one of the leading figures of the cultural life of Denmark between the World Wars. In Denmark, he often is referred to, simply, as PH. His novel designs are featured in many museums. International interest in his work was revived during the 1960s.
