PH 5 Contemporary – a new distinctive colour range

LP_PH5_Rosa_Army_Wht_Dark Grey

Times change and colours change. Light has become an important part of interior design, and contemporary trends are therefore being reflected more and more in lighting.

PH 5 is a design classic. World-famous and more popular than ever. PH 5 enjoyed its 50th anniversary in 2008 and was celebrated in a special campaign: happy colour – happy birthday. These lights are still best sellers around the world and being featured in leading home furnishing magazines

Louis Poulsen is now launching a completely new and different colour range for the design icon – matching contemporary hues and trends. Its ability to adapt to all types of interiors remains unique, but the new colour range makes the role of the lighting in the overall interior design more pronounced. 


The colour combinations range from soft white/rose and rose/green to the more masculine and tough army green/dark grey and dark grey/turquoise. These combinations make the lights an integrated part of the furnishings, without dominating. A special feature of the PH 5 light is the spacers which hold the shades precisely in position. In all new variants these are now finished with a warm bronze colour. PH 5_Rosa_2

All the colour variants have a matt surface giving the distinct design extra softness and making the new model stand apart visually from the PH 50 anniversary edition.

The new colour variants are a good match with contemporary natural materials, various woods, raw concrete, textiles and other accessories. They help create a comfortable and soft atmosphere, and time for reflection, socialising and relaxation.

It is possible to use several different light sources in the PH 5: incandescent, halogen, energy saving lamps and LED.

The PH 5 in new colours will be available from approved Louis Poulsen shops early fall 2013. The recommended retail price is £495.00
