Poul Henningsen designed the PH5 lamp for Louis Poulsen in 1958. The PH5 lamp (PH-5 pendant) is considered to be a classical masterpiece and the ultimate functional style icon. Poul Henningsen named it the PH5 because the diameter of the top shade is 50 cm. The number "5" refers to 5 dm (19.7"). The Louis Poulsen PH5 lamp has a white finish. PH5 pendant lights are perfect for every space; hang these PH5 lamps above the dining table, office table or in groups over the kitchen- island and counter. PH5 is made by Louis Poulsen in Denmark.
The PH5 lamp provides a glare free illumination. The design of the visible reflectors ensures that light is directed both vertically and horizontally. Light is diffused through a sandblasted glass shield located in the lower shade. The inside cone is painted red, and together with the small blue reflector creates a warmer tone of light. The Louis Poulsen PH5 pendant lamp was designed to hang low above a table while at the same time giving a moderate light to the surroundings. The design of the visible reflectors ensures that light is directed both vertically and horizontally. Regardless of how the lamp is installed and no matter which incandescent bulb it is furnished with, the PH5 is completely glare-free.
The PH5 lamp is a classic icon of mid century modern Scandinavian design. Always stylish, effortlessly elegant and uniquely beautiful, the PH5 lamp is a modern classic that evokes a world of luxury and sophistication. To be treasured forever. The PH5 lamp is one of the most popular lamps ever made. Nearly 50% of Danish homes are equipped with at least one PH5 lamp.
