Poul Henningsen Red PH5 Mini Pendants for Louis Poulsen

US$794per item

About

Poul Henningson Red PH5 Mini pendants for Louis Poulsen. Poul Henningsen originally introduced the full-sized PH 5 pendant light in 1958 as a Classic new product. No one knew at the time that it would eventually become synonymous with the PH brand. Regardless of how the light is installed or the light source used, the PH 5 is completely glare-free. The PH 5 Mini is the newest example of the three shade system developed by Paul Henningsen in 1925-1926. Striking in form but compact enough to be used in multiples, this versatile design is suitable for both residential and commercial spaces. The PH system of metal shades are painted to ensure comfortable, uniform light distribution that is mainly directed downwards. Henningsen sought to create glare-free lighting and aim the light to where it most needed while creating soft shadows. The pendants were produced in a number of formats and colors with the undersides of shades painted white or gold to provide diffused lighting, and illuminate itself. The PH 5 Mini is composed of spun aluminum shades, sand-blasted glass bottom diffuser and rolled aluminum struts. Price is per item. UL listed. Maximum 40 W incandescent bulb, higher with LED. Ships with a white canopy and 12 feet of white PVC power cord. In-stock lead time up to 2-3 weeks. Out of stock lead time up to 10-12 weeks. Please note in-stock availability subject to change.

About the Designer

Poul Henningsen

The name Poul Henningsen is synonymous with the best and most innovative modern Scandinavian lamps and other lighting. The Danish designer created a signature vocabulary of fixtures with tiered and layered shades in sculptural arrangements that are at once naturalistic and geometric. Henningsen grew up in a town on the outskirts of Copenhagen and studied architecture at the Technical University of Denmark. He would become a noted art critic, journalist and screenwriter, but his first love was lighting design. Henningsen’s childhood home was illuminated by oil lamps. When his family switched to electrified lighting, he was alarmed and repelled by the harsh glare cast by an incandescent bulb, and in his late teens he began conducting quasi-scientific experiments to measure which materials and methods best diffused or reflected light to give it a warm brightness. His work came to the attention of the lighting-fixtures firm Louis Poulsen, which sponsored the development of a prototype lamp. The design won a gold medal at the 1925 Paris Expositions Internationales des Arts Decóratifs et Industriels Modernes — from which the term Art Deco derives. The lamp, whose three-part shade is said to be inspired by the arrangement of a dinner plate atop a soup bowl atop a teacup, became the basis for Henningsen’s most successful design, the PH 4/3 desk lamp.All told, Henningsen would design some 100 lighting fixtures in his career. Some of his most notable creations are hanging lamps, which include the Septima (1929), a pendant composed of seven graduated frosted-glass layers; the Spiral (1942), made of a single ribbon of enameled aluminum; and the Artichoke lamp (1958), whose 70 glass or metal fins in a staggered and graduated arrangement on a central steel frame resemble those of its namesake. The last is likely Henningsen’s masterwork and an icon of mid-20th-century design. Like all Henningsen lighting designs, it is striking, sculptural and — thanks to his insistence on the primacy of the quality of the light cast — superbly functional.Find a collection of authentic Poul Henningsen table lamps, floor lamps and other lighting on 1stDibs.
