Rooted in a painstaking analysis of the reflective qualities of light, Poul Henningsen's PH 5 light is recognised as a classic of Danish design and is notable for its innovative glare-free form and uniform illumination.
Henningsen developed the PH 5 pendant light in 1958 in response to constant changes to the shape and size of incandescent bulbs by bulb manufacturers. Irrespective of how the light is installed or the light source used, the PH 5 is completely glare-free, as a result of Henningsen's ingenious three shade system. The light derives its name from the 50cm diameter of the shade. A reduced version of the original, the PH 5 Mini has a diameter of 30cm.
The shade and reflectors are made of spun aluminium, with rolled aluminium struts. Struts come in purple (for Classic white only) or bronze coloured.
The PH 5 mini is available in eight colour combinations which feature a main colour and a contrasting shade applied to the underside of the internal anti-glare disk. These are: Classic white (with blue anti-glare disk) or Modern white (rose anti-glare disc), Matt powder coated. Hues of Blue (red anti-glare disc), Hues of Green (red anti-glare disc), Hues of Grey (rose anti-glare disc), Hues of Orange (blue anti-glare disc), Hues of Red (green anti-glare disc), Hues of Rose (green anti-glare disc), Matt wet painted.
