The PH 5 pendant lamp is a member of the PH3-shade-product family. The PH3 shade system was initially a pendant light fitting, but fast developed into other varieties of lights, such as table, floor, and wall lamps and in a large variety of chandeliers. As a result of the different sizes, materials, surfaces and light sources, thousands of versions emerged over the years. .
The PH 5 and its youngest siblings can be hanged low over the table. They are composed of three white shades and one cone all held together by three purple braces. The two smaller, coloured shades improve the spectral component of the light, hardly visible to the eye. The red lacquered cone-interior, that also stayed the same as the PH 50 variant, is responsible for the warm light tone. Because of the design of the visible reflectors, the light shines vertically as well as horizontally. The light is then diffused through the sand-shone glass at the bottom of the shade.
The design, that hasn't lost any of its charm over the last 50 years, speaks for itself. The combination of its three-shade lamp with its four-shade lamp qualifies the PH 5 today as one of the best examples of absolute glare-free lighting.Also in our blog:
