The PH Septima is regarded as one of Poul Henningsen’s most refined pendants. In 2020, it returns to enchant new audiences after an 80-year hiatus from production. Its crowning glory is the seven-shade glass system crafted entirely from Italian borosilicate glass. Mesmerising in its delicacy, it taps into the enchanting, ethereal nature of light — emerging from the darkness as a living, glowing sculpture.

Based on the PH three-shade system of the PH 5/5, the glass crown has four extra shades inserted between the three basic shades - all seven produced in very delicate, but also strong, Italian borosilicate glass. The shades made of clear glass are treated to appear with alternate clear and frosted fields and are positioned so the frosted fields cover the clear fields underneath, allowing the shades to spread the light in a more diffused manner while maintaining glare-free, downward directed light distribution. In addition, a neat round glass cup is placed at the top in order to prevent dust from falling into the lamp.
