Poul Henningsen developed the PH 5 Pendant Light in 1958 as a classic new product that eventually became synonymous with the PH brand. To mark the 50th anniversary of the PH 5 in 2008, the PH 50 (a high–gloss version in five new colors) was introduced.

This fixture is part of the three shade system developed by Paul Henningsen in 1925–1926. In this system, the 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.

UL listed. Ships with a white canopy and 12 feet of white PVC power cord. The PH 50 Pendant Light is composed of spun aluminum shades and sand–blasted glass.
