Louis Poulsen’s PH5 lamp

lp

The weekend is almost over but I wanted to leave you with an image of the classic Louis Poulsen PH5 lamp. A little history about the creation of PH5:

Poul Henningsen developed the PH 5 in 1958 for Louis Poulsen as a response to the constant changes to light bulbs at the time.

“I have designed a PH fixture which can be used with any kind of light source, Christmas lights and 100 W metal-filament bulbs.”

The name PH 5 came from the size of the 50cm wide main shade and over time has seen many updates to accommodate changing light sources. In the early 90’s it was modified to accommodate an energy saving light bulb. The metal plate was also changed to a frosted glass plate to be more energy efficient. Just a few years ago a new set of 5 high gloss colors were introduced to the public.

AMM was created as a way to share my aesthetics with the world. Stunning interiors instigated my passion for beautiful, extraordinary, and simple shapes. I was largely influenced by Nordic design philosophy and AMM transitioned from a personal blog into my own collection of interiors, things, visual trends, DIY projects, lifestyle products, and observations. As an interior design aficionado, I would love to see like-minded people, so stay tuned!

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
