Released in 2019, Louis Poulsen's PH 5 Mini pendant in brass pairs polished brass with pure white shades. Over time, the brass will develop a charming patina.

Louis Poulsen’s PH 5 Mini is a smaller version of the legendary PH 5 pendant, which was designed by Poul Henningsen in 1958. Due to the layered shades and the special colouring of the inside, the pendant gives a smooth and pleasant light with no glare. Launched in 2017, the PH 5 Mini was designed for the needs of modern living: it can be used as the main light in a small room or as a vivid detail in a bigger space. The diameter of the main shade is 30 centimetres, which makes the PH 5 Mini compact but still spectacular.

Poul Henningsen

Poul Henningsen (1894-1967) was a famous Danish designer who studied at the Technical School at Frederiksberg, Denmark, from 1911 to 1914, and then at the Technical College in Copenhagen from 1914 to 1917. He started practicing traditional functionalistic architecture, but over the years his professional interests changed to focus mainly on lighting which is what he became famous for.

He also expanded his field of occupation into areas of writing, becoming a journalist and an author. 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”. Poul Henningsen’s pioneering work concerning the relations between light structures, shadows, glare, and color reproduction – compared to man’s need for light remains the fondation of the lighting theories still practiced by Louis Poulsen Lighting.
