product description

Great reasons to buy the Louis Poulsen PH 5-4½ Pendant Light

  • The PH 5-4½ is part of a family of lighting products that are considered design classics and were widely popular in the 1930s.
  • It's made using a reflective four shade system based on the logarithmic spiral, resulting in an even distribution of light that directs light downwards.
  • The light emitted is completely glare free and illuminates above and below the shade.
  • This range of lights have great architectural versatility and can be used as single lights in a home or as part of a cluster in a commercial setting.

Why you'll love this pendant light

The PH 5-4½ pendant light was conceived by Poul Henningsen in the 1930s and redesigned in 1984 by Danish architects Sophus Frandsen and Ebbe Christensen for the Aarhus Concert Hall in Copenhagen. It has a four system shade in a matt white painted finish; perfect for creating that Scandinavian look and ensuring very comfortable lighting.

Poul Henningsen designed the three-shade system back in 1925-1926, but in the 1930s the four-shade system was launched in to create a fixture which could be mounted high up and could serve as an alternative to the commonly used chandeliers. The PH four-shade light was designed to increase the amount of light emitted horizontally to provide greater illumination of walls and shelves than was possible using standard three-shade lights.

The trumpet-shaped top shade on the 5-4½ fixture provides illumination of the area above the three shades, which primarily direct the light downwards. A base reflector and a blue glare ring protect against glare from all angles. The strongest light is directly under the fixture.

The PH 5-4½ is ideal for museums, exhibition rooms and areas where uniform light quality is desired.
