The collaboration between Louis Poulsen and Poul Henningsen
In 1924 the cooperation with Poul Henningsen begins. The designer and the company came together through the Decorative Art Exhibition in Paris. The interplay of light and design is as much a part of the designer's view as it is of Louis Poulsen. In 1925 the designer's lamps were awarded a gold medal in Paris.
The timeless classic - The PH 5 luminaire
In 1926, Louis Poulsen, Poul Henningsen and the PH luminaire won the tender to equip the new Forum building in Copenhagen. The market launch of the legendary luminaire was scheduled for the same year.
Production of the lamps was taken over by Louis Poulsen in 1941. This was made possible by the purchase of a metal goods factory.
The name "PH5" stands for the lamp diameter of 50cm. The model was launched in 1958.
