A red PH 5 pendant, produced by lighting manufacturer Louis Poulsen and designed by Poul Henningsen.

The PH 5 is an iconic illustration of Danish design. It was first introduced in 1958 in the Danish Museum of Decorative Art in Copenhagen. The pendant’s structure is both elegant and innovative: the layered shades prevent glare and provide soft, warm light.

The lamp is rewired with 2 m high-end quality, white fabric cord—for safety and beauty.
