PH 5 Anniversary Edition | Highlight image
Poul Henningsen developed the PH 5 in 1958 in response to constant changes in the shape and size of incandescent bulbs, creating a lamp that could be used with any light source. The iconic design is based on the same principles as Henningsen’s three-shade system, which ensures that the light is soft, pleasant and completely glare-free, making it the perfect dining room table lamp. Originally, the PH 5 was fitted with red and blue shades to improve the colour of the light, however these have been removed in later designs as modern light sources reproduce daylight much more effectively than they did in 1958. Available in a number of different colour variations, the PH 5 is a much-loved and well-known pendant, that is found in many homes around the world.

This anniversary edition is painted matte white on the outside, with pale rose on the inside, which provides a soft, warm light, while the supports made of metallised brass add a beautiful touch.

The fixture provides a comfortable, glare-free light, based on the principle of Poul Henningsen’s reflective three-shade system, which directs the majority of the light downwards. It emits a lateral light as well as illuminating itself, providing a soft radiance from within its core. The lower shade is furthermore fitted with a frosted diffuser glass to ensure that the downward directed light is 100% glare-free.
