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.

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.
