One of the most beautiful Danish lighting fixtures ever created, the PH5 Pendant by Louis Poulsen is now available in a resized mini version. Louis Poulsen's PH5 pendant lamp, designed by Poul Henningsen (1958), made by Louis Poulsen Lighting in Denmark. Poul Henningsen was one of the first to recognize the importance of the shaping of light, and in 1958, as a follow-up to his three-shade system from 1926, he designed the PH 5 pendant. Rooted in a meticulous analysis of the reflective qualities of light, Poul Henningsen’s PH 5 light is recognized as a Danish design classic and is notable for its innovative glare-free shape and uniform illumination. In the spirit of Poul Henningsen, Louis Poulsen now launches PH5 Mini to cater to contemporary and creative living.
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 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. Henningsen wanted to improve the color reproduction of the light source in the PH 5. Small red and blue shades were inserted to supplement the color in the part of the spectrum where the eye is least sensitive the red and blue areas thereby subduing the light in the middle yellow-green region where the eye is most sensitive. The new PH 5 Mini is introduced in an innovative new color palette, developed in collaboration with color expert Louise Sass and plays with colors that start with the darkest tone at the top and soften shade by shade. The Mini will be available in the Classic color version of PH 5, a new contemporary white, and an additional five color combinations: Hues of Orange, Rose, Red, Green and Blue
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. The pendant was named PH 5 because of the 50 centimeter diameter of its top shade. Louis Poulsen now launches a mini version with a top shade diameter of 30 centimeters (12”) .
