Description

Iconic piece of lightning art by Poul Henningsen designed in 1958.

The pendant 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 PH 5 was and is completely glare-free. The pendant was named PH 5 because of the 50-centimeter diameter of its top shade.

Some say that in Denmark approximately one in every two homes has a PH5 pendant, and white colour as above is the most popular.

Original condition with Louis Poulsen sticker.
