The fixture is a retake on a classical PH 5 and has been stripped of all its previous paint, thus appearing raw and untouched.
The bare metal inner shades give a particularly gentle light reflection, delivering a warm and cosy ambience.
The lower shade is furthermore fitted with a frosted diffuser glass to ensure that the downward directed light is 100% glare-free.
The transition process from a vintage or imperfect PH 5—for example, with a dent or slight surface irregularities—to a one-of-a-kind PH 5 Retake involves removing the paint from each pendant. This allows the aesthetics of the aluminium shades and the lower steel shade to emerge with remarkable raw nuances.
At the end of the process, the PH 5 Retake is coated with a dry lubricant to protect its metal parts. Without further treatment, the metal will patinate beautifully over time, giving each pendant its own characteristic expression.
