In celebration of one of the most iconic design, Louis Poulsen is releasing a commemorative edition that pair copper shades and white tiers.
Six decades after its first unveiling,the PH5 pendant remains Louis Poulsen’s best selling design: a testament to the revolutionary nature of Henningsen’s work to shape light.
The designer, developed the PH 5 in 1958 as a follow-up to his celebrated three-shade system, which launched in 1926 and put Louis Poulsen on the map as a leading manufacturer of innovative lighting. Henningsen’s goal: to make light softer and more flattering in an era when electric lighting was still new and marked by unwanted glare.
