PH5 celebrates its 50th anniversary. Louis Poulsen commemorates the birthday by introducing PH50, a special version of the classic fixture, a bright spot in your design. Available in five finishes: Mint blue, coconut white, chili red, wasabi green or olive black.

PH 50 provides glare-free illumination. The design of the visible reflectors ensures that light is directed both vertically and horizontally. PH 50 is wet-painted in a high-luster finish. All versions of PH 50 have a warm red anti-glare disc to ensure a warm tone of light with the inner-sides painted white to make effective light. Light is diffused through a sand-blasted glass shield located in the lower shade. Shades are made of spun aluminum and supporting struts are matte chrome plated rolled aluminum. White ceiling canopy which mounts to 4" octagonal junction box. 12 foot long 3-conductor, 18 AWG white PVC covered power cord.

Poul Henningsen

Poul Henningsen was born in Copenhagen to the famous Danish actress Agnes Henningsen. He never graduated as an architect, but studied at The Technical School at Frederiksberg, Denmark from 1911-14, and then at Technical College in Copenhagen from 1914-17.

He started practicing traditional functionalistic architecture, but over the years his professional interests changed to focus mainly on lighting. He also expanded his field of occupation into areas of writing, becoming a journalist and an author. For a short period at the beginning of WWII, he was the head architect of the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen. But like many other creative people, he was forced to flee Denmark during the German occupation but soon became a vital part of the Danish colony of artists living in Sweden.

His lifelong collaboration with Louis Poulsen Lighting began in 1925 and lasted until his death. To this day, Louis Poulsen Lighting still benefits from his genius. Poul Henningsen was also the first editor of the company magazine "NYT". The CEO of Louis Poulsen at the time, Sophus Kaastrup-Olsen, gave the magazine to PH as a gift because he had been terminated from the Danish newspaper he worked for (his opinions were too radical).

Poul Henningsen's pioneering work concerning the relations between light structures, shadows, glare, and color reproduction¬ócompared to man's need for light remains the foundation of the lighting theories still practiced by Louis Poulsen Lighting.

Great lamp - super fast delivery
 

We are a big fan of Poul Henningsen and the anniversary edition in a multitude of colors is great. Ylighting impressed with very fast service and excellent overall price, which was far better than, say, other online furniture retailers.

Well Worth the Wait!
 

I have been saving up to buy "Anything PH" for a very long time -- you see, I am from the 50's! When I learned about the PH 50 and that it came in Wasabi Green, I knew the time had come for me place the order. And when the order came, the huge box sat in the trunk of my car until I could arrange for an electrician. And when the electrician finally got around to me a couple of weeks later, he announced that the bulb required by the PH 50 was a 200 watt A23 type and that he did not have any bulbs like that on his truck but that perhaps one of the big home improvement centers might carry such a thing. But they did not. And neither did any of the little local hardware stores. So I went online and ordered a single bulb from e-Lightbulbs.com and it finally came yesterday! Imagine my excitement as I inserted the bulb into the socket and then attached the shade into the socket section! Finally, after probably 60 long years, my wish was about to come true! Standing in the darkened dining area, I closed my eyes and flicked the switch, turning the dimmer down as low as it would go. Then I opened my eyes for the Big Reveal. It is not possible to describe the cozy effect that the PH 50 had had on the cherry dining table that I'd set with white placemats and my antique Limoges dinnerware -- with its tiny purple flowers with wasabi green leaves! Wonderful young things always go so well with Grannies!

Fast, efficient service. Excellent product.
 

Our Louis Poulsen 50th anniversary pendant is just what we wanted. Thank you for the efficient, professional service, and for packing the light using sustainable materials. We plan to purchase more lights from you for our "new" 1900 home in NH that will undergo renovation next spring.

Great light!
 

We purchased this light in 2008 and loved it. We sold our home last year and bought a new one this year. We missed our dining room light so much that we purchased another one. This time in chili red. The light looks fantastic in our new home and only uses a 100 watt bulb on a dimmer!
