The pendant light PH 5-4 1/2 by Louis Poulsen goes back to a lighting design by the Danish designer Poul Henningsen from 1958, the PH 5 light. Thus, the PH 5-4 1/2 pendant light is not only a design classic, but at the same time up to date on the state of the art. Because, the PH 5-4 1/2 pendant light by Louis Poulsen delivers through its thought-out construction and special arrangement of the reflectors an absolutely glare-free light, just like her big sister, the PH 5 pendant light.

The designer’s considerations when designing the PH 5 pendant light are also reflected in the PH 5-4 1/2. Lampshades and diffuser of the PH 5-4 1/2 pendant light shield the light source and thus ensure a glare-free light. At the same time, the light reflection creates a pleasant and atmospheric zone light, which illuminates the immediate surroundings and recommends the pendant light PH 5-4 1/2 by Louis Poulsen for illuminating tables and setting accents in the room.

At TAGWERC Design STORE, you get the pendant lamp PH 5-4 1/2 as original of licensed manufacturer Louis Poulsen. Replacement parts for the PH 5-4 1/2 pendant lamp are also available at TAGWERC.
