Louis Poulsen’s PH 5 pendant light, designed by Poul Henningsen in 1958, is a Danish design icon that has gained immense global popularity.
The pendant’s structure is both elegant and innovative: the beautiful, layered shades prevent glare and provide a pleasant lighting in any room. What’s more, the red cone and the small blue reflector inside the pendant give the light a warmer tone. The name of the pendant refers to its designer and the main shade’s 50-cm diameter. PH 5 pendant light is perfect above a dining table but also suits higher mounting in various architectural spaces.
The color palette of the PH 5 pendant lamp has been expanded with three new monochrome colors: black, white and blue.
Dimensions: dia 30 cm. / Height: 16,3 cm.
