Having graced the halls of universities, restaurants and libraries in Europe for decades, the PH5 Pendant Lamp (1958) is one of designer Poul Henningsen’s most recognizable lighting designs. Constructed by Louis Poulsen, the original manufacturer since its inception, this versatile lamp features a shade with layers of varying sizes and shapes to direct light both horizontally and vertically. Striking in form but compact enough to be used in multiples, it’s suitable for both residential and commercial spaces. Bulb (not included): incandescent, CFL or LED; E26 base; 200W max. UL Listed. Made in Denmark.
- For the PH 5 Classic in White, Henningsen lent further warmth to the quality of light by ingeniously applying primary red to the interior of the inside cone and blue to the smallest reflector to absorb both light spectrums.
- To mark the 50th anniversary of the PH5 in 2008, the PH50 (a high-gloss version in five new colors) was introduced.
- The difference between the PH5 and the PH50: The PH5 has a matte finish, and the PH50 has a lacquer finish.
