The PH 5 Pendant Lamp is a member of the PH3-shade product family. The PH 3-shade system was initially a pendant lamp solution but quickly became an example for other types of lamps for tables, floors, walls and a large number of chandeliers. As a result of the different sizes, materials, surfaces and light sources, more than a thousand versions have been developed over the years.
The PH 5 and its younger siblings, the PH 50 lamps, can be hung low over the table. They are composed of three white shades and a cone on three violet struts. The two smaller, coloured shades improve the ghost-like quality of the light, which is hardly visible to the eye. The red lacquered cone interior, which is also preserved on the PH 50 variants, is responsible for the warm light tone. The design of the visible reflector ensures that light is emitted both vertically and horizontally.
Sand-blasted glass in the bottom shade makes the lighting diffuse. Design which still remains current after fifty years speaks for itself. The combination of his three and four-shaded lamps makes the Henningsen’s PH 5 one of the best examples of completely glare-free lighting today.
