The classic PH 5 pendant Lamp from Louis Poulsen designed by Poul Henningsen.
Designed in 1958, the PH 5 pendant lamp was developed in response to the frequent changes of the shape and size of incandescent bulbs by bulb manufacturers at the time. One of the main concepts behind the PH 5 was to create a lamp that provided 100% glare-free light. This was achieved through the principle of a three-shade system, which directs the majority of the light downwards, but allows a enough diffused light upwards to illuminate itself.
Ideal for use over a dining table, the height at which it's stunning design can be fully appreciated, of course without any glare!
Originally only available in what is now called Classic White, Henningsen wanted to improve the colour characteristics of the light source to create a warmer, more gentle tone. He did this by the use of a red cone and a small blue reflector, which subdues the light in the middle yellow/green region where the eye is most sensitive.
Christened the PH 5 due to the 50 cm diameter of the main shade. In addition to the Classic White version The PH 5 is now available in 5 matt contemporary colour combinations.
To mark the 50th anniversary of the PH5, Louis Poulsen released high-gloss version of the PH5 named the PH50, available in 5 bold colours.
