Additional Information


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): 22W/A21/E26 LED. 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.
  • Brass and copper pendants are unfinished and will develop a patina over time.
  • Brass and copper pendants are special commemorative editions, created to celebrate the anniversary of Henningsen’s 125th birthday.

What is the best lightbulb to use in the lamp?
T F on Feb 10, 2020

The best light bulb to use with the PH5 Pendant Lamp is a 22W/A21/E26 LED bulb.
Is it dimmable?
Sarah P on Jan 21, 2020

Yes, the PH5 Pendant Lamp is dimmable. We would recommend working with a certified electrician to determine the correct bulb to use, as well as ensuring proper installation.
changing the light bulb?
Rich G on Nov 21, 2019

Replacing the bulb within the PH5 Pendant Lamp is easy, simply twist the top piece of the fixture counterclockwise while simultaneously twisting the largest bottom piece clockwise. After a couple of seconds you should see the top piece detach from the rest of the fixture, giving you the ability then to replace the bulb. I have attached a PDF document showing step by step instructions with pictures to help guide you, (https://www.dwr.com/on/demandware.static/-/Sites-master-catalog/default/dwc86d0998/ProductPDF/PH5%20Mounting.pdf).
