Louis Poulsen

PH 5/5 Pendant Lamp


The PH 5/5 Pendant Lamp is a member of the PH series.

The PH series is based on the principle of a reflective three-shade system that directs the majority of the light downwards. Each shade is made of hand-blown, opal, three-layer glass, which is glossy on top and sandblasted matte on the underside, resulting in a soft and uniform distribution of light. The first PH Table lamp was completed in early 1927 and to provide an alternative to low-pitched hanging lamps.

Poul Henningsen was a pioneer in the lighting world as the first designer to take a scientific approach to lighting. Working with Louis Poulsen from 1925 up until his death in 1967, his focus on glare-free and soft lighting is still the foundation of Louis Poulsen's lighting philosophy.

The PH light model numbers refer to the shade size. Each top shade had a corresponding set of middle and lower shades. 

"...it is an art to make light both economical and glare free." -Poul Henningsen
