The PH 5 by Poul Henningsen for Louis Poulsen was developed in response to the constant changes made to the shape and size of incandescent bulbs by bulb manufacturers in 1958. Henningsen designed the pendant thoughtfully with the consumer's best interests at heart developing the pendant to be used with any kind of light source. His intention was to improve the color reproduction characteristics of the light source. Therefore, small red and blue shades were inserted to supplement the color in the parts of the spectrum where the eye is least sensitive.
The fixture provides 100% glare-free light. Its design is based on the principle of a reflective three-shade system that directs most of the light downward. The fixture emits both downward and lateral light, thus illuminating itself.
PH 5 continues to elevate even the most modern interiors in a range of colors today. The PH 5 Monochrome Series is the newest addition to the PH 5 collection, launched in 2020.
Poul Henningsen's pioneering work concerning the relations between light structures, shadows, glare, and color reproduction—compared to man’s need for light remains the foundation of the lighting theories still practiced by Louis Poulsen.
