Poul Henningsen triumphs again with another chic lighting fixture! The PH5 Pendant Lamp, a late addition to his famous PH series, gives off warm, diffuse light through it's stylish, carefully considered design. Naturally, the PH5 Pendant Lamp works well alongside others from the range. But it would also look great with any of the Eames chairs in your dining room, or with the Wegner G-290 sofa to brighten up a living room. The VOGA version matches the original design and is available in a variety of colours.
The Story Behind the Poul Henningsen PH 5 Pendant Lamp
Believing that light quality had a big impact on people's lives, Poul Henningsen began designing his ground-breaking PH Lamps series in 1925, with the idea of making lamps that softened the harsh, direct glare of bare electrical lights. It wasn't until much later, in 1958 that he added the PH 5 to the range, reworking the pendant lamp with a new anti-glare red disc and leg-mounted cone. This gave the diffuse light a warmer hue and made the old design seem shiny and new.
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Often said to be the first lighting architect, Danish designer, Poul Henningsen devoted much of his life to exploring the importance of light for well-being. Believing people should not be subject to the direct glare of an electrical light source, he focused on creating lamps that produced glare-free illumination. His self-titled PH series was his most famous collection and included the PH 3/2 Table Lamp, the PH Artichoke, the PH5 and PH 3½ - 2½Floor Lamp.
