Doo-Wop Suspension Light

was $560.00 Special Price $476.00
Designed by:  Louis Poulsen Lighting
Manufactured by:  Louis Poulsen

Originally introduced in the 1950's, Doo-Wop was designed in close cooperation between the Navy Buildings Department and Louis Poulsen.  The pendant was used for many years in the builidngs of the Navy for many different applications such as cateens and offices.  The Navy Pendant, which was the name at that time, was widely used because of the unique lighting properties and utility.  Not until the early 1980's the product was taken out of the Louis Poulsen catalogues.  In recent years, more and more of the old editions have been sold again through antique stores and auctions.  This has caused a demand and Louis Poulsen has been asked to re-launch the products.  The new version is very close to the original.  However, the colors have been updated to correspond to the colors of the time, while the production methods are the same.  The shades are still and spun by hand and completed with the fine rolled edge which gives the shades a special opticial volume.  The brass variant challenges the craftsman as it is spun from a solid brass plate and appears polished.  Suitable for damp locations.  UL listed.  Manufactured by Louis Poulsen.

Designed in 1950.

Overall Dimensions:  11.1" Diameter, 9.7" H
Bulb Information:  One max 22W A-21 LED bulb or one max 60W A19 incandescent bulb (not included)

Louis Poulsen

“Inspired by an urge to carry the soft luminescence of the Scandinavian summer into the dense darkness of the Scandinavian winter, Louis Poulsen has always sought not to design lamps, but to shape light.” Founded in 1874, Louis Poulsen is a Danish lighting manufacturer born out of the Scandinavian design tradition where form follows function. The function and design of its products are tailored to reflect and support the rhythm of natural light where every detail in the design has a purpose and every design starts and ends with light. From the mid 20th century through the present, Louis Poulsen’s close partnerships with designers and architects like Poul Henningsen, Arne Jacobsen, Verner Panton, Oivind Slaatto, Alfred Homann, Oki Sato and Louise Campbell, has established the manufacturer as one of the key global suppliers of architectural and decorative lighting. Defying traditional product categories, Louis Poulsen’s products serve and span the professional and private lighting markets for both indoor and outdoor applications.
