The PH5 pendant is a design classic. World-famous and more popular than ever. The PH5 was introduced as a classic new product, and no one knew at the time that it would eventually become synonymous with the PH light. Irrespective of how the light is installed or the light source used, the PH5 is and remains completely glare-free. The fixture was christened pH5 due to the 50 cm diameter of the main shade. Poul Henningsen wanted to improve the colour reproduction characteristics of the light source in the PH5. Small red and blue shades were therefore inserted to supplement the colour in the part of the spectrum where the eye is least sensitive – the red and blue areas – thereby subduing the light in the middle yellow-green region where the eye is most sensitive. The PH5 design has been regularly updated as light sources have developed.
The PH5 Classic, designed for use with energy-saving bulbs, was introduced in 1994. To achieve higher efficiency, the metal plate was replaced with frosted glass and the light was painted using a purer white colour. In 2013 the PH5 Contemporary was introduced in 4 new matt colour combinations – soft white/rose, rose/green, army green/dark grey and dark grey/turquoise. The colour range makes the role of the lighting in the overall interior design more pronounced. The colour combinations range from all the colour variants have a matt surface giving the distinct design extra softness.
