Poul Henningsen developed the PH 5 in 1958 in response to constant changes in the shape and size of incandescent bulbs introduced 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 to 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.
The light fixture’s design has been regularly updated as light sources have developed overtime. All of these editions are also available in the scaled down PH 5 Mini (30cm diameter), which was added to the PH 5 family in 2017.
