Design Poul Henningsen, 1958 Spun aluminum, sand-blasted glass, matte coated Made in Denmark by Louis Poulsen
The fixture provides 100% glare-free light. Its design is based on the principle of a reflective three-shade system, which directs majority of the light downwards. The fixture emits both downward and lateral light, thus illuminating itself. In the PH 5 Classic, a warmer tone of light is created by the inside red cone and a small blue reflector.

Shades: Spun aluminium. Anti-glare disc: Blue, red, pale rose, green, dark grey or turquiose, spun aluminium. Struts: Aluminium coloured, purple or bronze coloured, rolled aluminium.
