More about this product

Louis Poulsen's PH 5 Lamp was developed in 1958 by Poul Henningsen in response to constant changes to the shape and size of incandescent bulbs by bulb manufacturers. The PH 5 was introduced as a classic new product, and no one knew at the time that it would eventually become synonymous with the PH light. Irrespective of how the light is installed or the light source used, the PH 5 is and remains completely glare-free. The fixture was christened PH 5 due to the 50 cm diameter of the main shade.

PH 5 Lamp design has been regularly updated as light sources have developed. Louis Poulsen's PH 5 plus, designed for use with energy-saving bulbs, was introduced in 1994. To achieve higher efficiency, the metal plate was replaced with frosted glass and the light was painted using a purer white colour. To mark the 50th anniversary of the PH 5 in 2008, the PH50 was introduced – a high-gloss version in five new colours. In 2013 the PH 5 was introduced in 4 new matt colour combinations.

PH 5

undefined

Concept
The fixture provides 100% glare-free light. Its design is based on the principle of a reflective three-shade system, which directs majority of the light downwards. The fixture emits both downward and lateral light, thus illuminating itself. In the PH 5 Classic, a warmer tone of light is created by the inside red cone and a small blue reflector.

Key Features

  • 100% glare free light
  • Symmetric light distribution
  • Suitable for high and low mounting
  • The fixture illuminates itself and its surroundings
  • Design icon
  • Suitable for repetitive installations
  • Great architectural versatility
