It’s 50 years since Poul Henningsen designed the PH5 lamp for Louis Poulsen. And to celebrate this milestone, Louis Poulsen has introduced a special edition – the PH50 lamp.

The light is designed to hang low over tables, using three reflective shades, a cone and two smaller shades to produce bright, glare-free light. The 2008 version steps away from the minimalist looks of the past, offering five bright colours – Chilli Red, Mint Blue, Wasabi Green, Coconut White and Olive Black – for the modern age.

No news on price, but I guess at the £400 mark.
