The Art & Antiques
Fair Olympia opens
today, Join us on
stand D11 from
27th June - 3rd July.
We are excited to be showing an extremely rare grand "PH" Piano (below) and an upright piano (above), both design classics by Poul Henningson and built to the highest level of craftsmanship by Andreas Christensen.

Poul Henningsen (1894-1967), Danish author, architect and critic, was one of the leading figures of the cultural life in Denmark between the World Wars.

Andreas Christensen started producing pianos in 1912 and worked with the very best contemporary architects and modernists of
the day.




The PH grand piano is known for its open design, exposing the strings so the hammer and damper movement is visible. During the design process Poul Henningsen, consulted the Danish Jazz pianist Leo Mathiesen. Mathiesen complained that the solid lid of his piano made it hard to see his bass player during performances, so Henningsen de- signed the Perspex lid to solve the problem. Later Henningsen was quoted saying "You also remove a violin from its case before you play it".






Please contact us for tickets and we look forward to seeing you on
