Louis Poulsen PH 5/5 Pendant Light
Today, the light characteristic of Poul Henningsen’s ‘whole’ sized PH 3/3 and PH 5/5 lift contemporary interiors with its own special ray of elegant, modern Danish classic in almost any room at home, or by taking high-ceilinged commercial spaces like flagship stores, meeting rooms, restaurants, hotel rooms and lobbies, to new heights
The fixture emits a diffused and comfortable glare-free light, characteristic of the reflective three-shade-system by Poul Henningsen. The fixture is available with white opal glass or soft touch black painted metal with a white inner side. Where the metal shades with the white painted inner sides reflect a fine and primarily downward directed light, the metal top shade combined with translucent opal glass middle and lower shades in threelayered mouth blow opal glass create a warm glow around the pendant too. The included diffuser in frosted glass is easy to insert for an even softer light distribution

Poul Henningsen was born in Copenhagen by the famous Danish actress Agnes Henningsen. He never graduated as an architect, but studied at The Technical School at Frederiksberg, Denmark from 1911-14, and then at Technical College in Copenhagen from 1914-17. He started practicing traditional functionalistic architecture, but over the years his professional interests changed to focus mainly on lighting which is what he is most famous for. He also expanded his field of occupation into areas of writing, becoming a journalist and an author. For a short period at the beginning of WWII, he was the head architect of the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen. But like many other creative people, he was forced to flee Denmark during the German occupation but soon became a vital part of the Danish colony of artists living in Sweden.
