PH 5 lamp 60th anniversary
Poul Henningsen’s classic PH 5 pendant lamp is now 60 years old and a new colour range has been introduced by its Danish manufacturer Louis Poulsen. Released on 1 February, it follows the success of the smaller sized version the PH 5 Mini which was introduced in November 2017 in the same colours.
To mark the release we have collaborated with Louis Poulsen to present an exhibition which showcases the lamps and looks at the work of the celebrated designer. The exhibition runs from 9 to 24 March. A private view takes place on Thursday 8 March between 6pm and 8pm and in keeping with all things Danish, refreshments from ScandiKitchen will be served.
PH 5 and PH 5 Mini are downward and lateral reflecting lamps. Made up of five spun aluminium shades, they come in eight colours. Classic white remains in the collection and a new Modern white will join these colours which come in tonal combinations – orange, rose, red, green, blue and grey. Different tones feature on each of the lamp’s five shades starting with the darkest at the top and then softening at the bottom with the palest colour. Contrasting coloured anti-glare reflectors sit under the shades providing a warm light tone. Bronze rolled aluminium struts hold the five shades together except for the Classic white model where the struts are purple.
