PH 5 & PH 5 Mini
This classic and very desirable pendant was created by the architect Poul Henningsen and is produced by the Danish lighting company Louis Poulsen, a fruitful partnership that spanned Henningsen’s entire working life.
Having developed his three-shade system at the end of the 1920s, Henningsen began working on extensions and refinements. The spread of electric lighting spurred his mission to create glare-free lamps, ultimately leading to his revolutionary, completely glare-free five-shade system.
The PH 5 was launched in 1958, and it’s difficult to imagine a lamp that works better over the dining table. It’s no surprise that that’s exactly where you find many, many PH 5s – in Denmark, across Scandinavia and around the world.
