Pendant lamp with three-shade system
Already in 1958, the designer Poul Henningsen designed the pendant lamp PH 5 as a continuation of his three-shade system from the year 192 6. This lamp is based on a meticulous analysis of the reflective properties of light and is now a real classic of Danish design due to its innovative, glare-free shape .
In the spirit of Poul Henningsen, Louis Poulsen now presents the PH 5 Mini - a smaller size of the classic pendant lamp for a modern and creative ambience.
Henningsen designed the PH 5 in response to the constant changes in shape and size of incandescent lamps. He developed a luminaire that, regardless of how the luminaire is mounted and what type of lamp is used, always remained completely glare-free. Henningsen also wanted to use the PH 5 to improve the color rendering of the lamp. Small red and blue screens were used to complement the color in the area of the spectrum that the eye perceived poorly - namely red and blue. At the same time, the light is attenuated in the middle yellow-green area where the eye is most sensitive. The PH 5 Mini is launched with an innovative new color palette. The lamp plays with the colors. It begins with the darkest tone at the top and becomes softer from screen to screen.
The name PH 5 corresponds to the diameter of the top umbrella of 50 cm. The PH 5 mini version, on the other hand, has a diameter of only 30 cm and is therefore ideal for small rooms. Due to the wide range of colors, the PH 5 Mini can also be excellently hung up as an expressive ensemble.
