PH 6½-6 pendant light

The PH 6 1 / 2-6 pendant light by Louis Poulsen is based on the three- shade lighting design by the Danish designer Poul Henningsen from the late 1920s. Thus, the PH 6½-6 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 6½-6 pendant light by Louis Poulsen delivers through its well thought-out design and special arrangement of the reflectors an absolutely glare-free light. The furnishing experts from the TAGWERC Design STORE recommend the PH 6½-6 pendant luminaire as the perfect zone light.

Designer Poul Henningsen himself commented on the creation of the PH 5 lamp, on which the PH 6 1/2-6 model is based, with the following words: “After 33 years of fundamentally Christian behavior, I have converted to Islam in relation to my broken relationship with the manufacturers of light bulbs. For a long time I believed that consumer consideration and common sense would predominate, but now I’ve become a fatalist. I have accepted fate and, with the approval of Louis Poulsen, designed a PH luminaire that can be used with any kind of light source – light string or 100 watt metal filament lamp. Although a fluorescent tube in the existing form would be too much!”

In the TAGWERC Design STORE, you will receive the pendant lamp PH 6½-6 and its little sister, the pendant lamp PH 5-4½ in all available versions of the licensed manufacturer Louis Poulsen. Replacement parts for the pendant lamp 6½-6 are also available from TAGWERC.
