Poul Henningsen (1894-1967), also known as PH, is perhaps best known for his lamps, such as the PH5 and "The Cone", but he also worked as a designer, architect, songwriter, and art and culture critic. For example, he worked as a critic for the art periodicals Vor Tid and Klingen. He also co-wrote a number of revues and and ballads, including 'Ølhunden' (The boozer) and 'I dit korte liv' (In your short life). His ballads are characterised by their use of everyday language.
